Read about his big announcement, and why it may piss off some of his contemporaries…
Kid Rock is kicking off his Rebel Soul tour like a devil without a cause. He’s sticking it to the system and in an unprecedented act of loyalty to his fans — who he knows may be suffering from difficult economic times — he's setting his summer concert ticket prices at $20. Our favorite “Lowlife” told Billboard, “Artists demand so much money, and you have to set ticket prices at [a certain level]. Everyone's fighting the system, and it's really been all of our faults. We're all fortunate to make as much money as we do, and I can surely take a pay cut and help out in these hard times.” These deeply discounted seats will apply to anywhere in the venue, and Kid isn’t stopping there. He’s lobbying for $4 beers and $20 t-shirts. It seems KR hasn’t forgotten what it’s like to struggle financially, though some of his peers may have.
