Kid Rock burst onto the music scene in 1998 with his Devil Without a Cause album and hasn’t looked back. From hit singles like “Bawitdaba” and “Cowboy” to “Picture” and “All Summer Long,” the recording artist has blazed his own trail in the music world, having sold over 26 million albums to date. Kid Rock holds the Michigan record for most tickets sold with 150,000 for a run of 10 consecutive sold-out shows, and recently set the Little Caesars Arena attendance record in his hometown of Detroit with 86,893 attendees in six sold-out shows.

On the heels of this arena success, Kid Rock hit the road in 2018 in support of his first album fully recorded in Nashville, Sweet Southern Sugar, with two hugely successful tours – winter’s American Rock n Roll tour and summer’s Red Blooded Rock n Roll Redneck Extravaganza.  The year also saw the release of his first-ever greatest hits project Kid Rock Greatest Hits You Never Saw Coming.  Kid Rock remains at the center of media attention in regard to his musical and personal ambitions, leaving his mark in a multitude of genres.
