Before Rock launches his charitable adventure, the Detroit native plays Atlanta’s Center Stage Nov. 10; Orange, Beach, Ala., at The Amphitheatre At The Wharf Nov. 12 and headlines, along with Michigan comrade Bob Seger, the Orlando Calling Festival at the Citrus Bowl Nov. 13.
Beginning with a gig in Silver Spring, Md., at the Fillmore Nov. 16, The Kid Rock Foundation will begin donating money to local charities, causes and individuals. But it’s not just the Kid digging into his deep pockets on this run. Instead, he’s assembled some of Detroit’s most powerful business people to help with the donations. Detroit businesses and individuals involved in Rock’s charitable undertaking include Compuware Corporation, The Suburban Collection, Quicken Loans Inc., Fathead and the Detroit Pistons.
Other destinations include New York’s Beacon Theatre Nov. 19; Indianapolis at the Egyptian Room Nov. 22; Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium Nov. 23; Chicago’s House Of Blues Nov. 26; Denver at the Fillmore Auditorium Dec. 1; and Boise. Idaho, at Knitting Factory Dec. 4. Ty Stone supports on all dates.
With local radio stations in each market helping to determine who will be on the receiving end, Rock said the idea for the tour came from his Born Free album’s new single “Care.”
“The song says ‘the least that I can do is Care’ – and I want to put my money where my mouth is. Everyone knows that Detroit is hurting,” Rock said in a statement. “But I want to show that even though we don’t have a lot on our own plate, it doesn’t mean the people of my hometown don’t have compassion to share with others all over the country. At the end of the day we’re all Detroit, we’re one country, one family.”
A fan club presale begins this week and general onsales launch Saturday. Visit KidRock.com for more information.
