In spite of difficult economic times, most big name artists charge top dollar for concert tickets. Although many shows still sell out, diehard fans are often priced out of the market and left disappointed. Kid Rock had the opportunity to sell high-priced tickets on the summer leg of his tour supporting his Rebel Soul album, but he chose to give every fan the chance to see him live. Calling it the “$20 Best Night Ever Tour” may sound a little “Cocky,” but as the song says…“it ain’t braggin’ motherf**ker if you back it up!” If you’ve ever seen Kid Rock live, you know that he backs it up and then some.
The first time that I saw Kid Rock was on his Born Free tour in the summer of 2011. It took place at Bethel Woods Center For The Arts, the site of the original Woodstock concert. After seeing all of the great reviews of the show, my expectations were set at a very high level. Having attended several hundred concerts through the years, the bar to be considered one of the best concerts ever was set extremely high, which is usually a recipe for disappointment. However, the only disappointment of the night happened when the house lights came on and the concert had finally ended.
Kid Rock concerts are not short. He played every song that I was hoping to hear, and yet I didn’t want the concert to end. The concert could have gone on for several more hours, and the crowd would have loved every minute of it because Kid Rock makes you feel like you’re attending one of the coolest parties ever with the most badass host on earth.
Although he has achieved incredible success, Kid Rock carries himself like a struggling artist on the rise, totally grounded and truly appreciative of anyone who spends their hard-earned money to see him perform. As he sat in his folding lawn chair on stage drinking a beer and talking to the crowd on that hot summer night in 2011, those lucky enough to be in the crowd felt like they were hanging out with a friend, not one of the biggest rock stars in the world.
At double the price, Kid Rock concert tickets would be a tremendous bargain considering what you get for your money. Seeing Kid Rock for only $20 feels like stealing. Those who don’t scrape together the money to see him will have to live with the regret of missing out on a golden opportunity. Those who take advantage of this generous offer will undoubtedly have the “$20 Best Night Ever!”
