Kid Rock Announces First Leg of "Born Free" Tour On Heels of New Album

Kid Rock has announced the first three months of his “BORN FREE” tour that comes in support of his new album, Born Free. Tickets for the tour will go on sale December 4th while Kid Rock officially plays the Van Andel Arena stage in Grand Rapids on January 25th. Ticket prices and further information to come later.

As usual, Kid Rock will be backed by his own excellent Twisted Brown Trucker Band. Following the Detroit celebration, the tour wraps around the country, hitting arenas throughout the country with this first leg of the tour ending March 14th in Houston, TX. This is just the beginning of a busy touring year for Kid Rock, who plans to add more dates later in the year. The headlining tour will also feature very special guest Jamey Johnson, whose new album “The Guitar Song” has been drawing rave reviews from fans and critics alike.

This tour comes in support of Kid Rock’s just released album “Born Free” which is being released amongst a flurry of promotion. After shaking up the European Music Awards in Madrid and the CMA Awards on November 12th, Kid Rock will appear on the live broadcast of the American Music Awards on Sunday, November 21st. A documentary entitled “Kid Rock: Born Free” has started airing across the MTV, Vh1, and CMT, adding to the huge visibility leading up to the release provided by TNT and ESPN sports campaigns featuring the albums first single, “Born Free.” The companion video to the song is already receiving accolades across the channels after debuting last week.

Kid Rock’s last album “Rock ‘N Roll Jesus,” released in 2007, debuted at #1 and stayed in the charts for 100 weeks, becoming the biggest selling Rock album of 2008. His hit single “All Summer Long” hit #1 in 8 countries and provided Kid Rock the opportunity to expand his huge touring base outside of America.

Kid Rock has a unique ability to genre-hop, marking his territory everywhere. He hosted last years CMT Awards (whose ratings rose 19% over the previous year) and performed at events ranging from the Grammy’s to the VMA’s, EMA’s and CMA’s to the Hip Hop Honors. He has performed for and visited troops overseas numerous times, and remains one of entertainments most vocal supporters of our soldiers abroad. In the past year he has entered into a unique partnership with Jim Beam, while at the same time expanding his philanthropic efforts through his own Kid Rock Foundation.
