Kid Rock is a liar. About a year ago, he made Christmas come early when he announced that he might quit touring altogether.
A lengthy video segment posted to Kid Rock’s social media accounts at the time mentioned that the singer’s then-upcoming tour with Foreigner might be his last:
“It very well could be [the last tour] for the unforeseen future. At 51 years old it’s not getting any easier doing jumps and carrying on onstage.
But I’m really keeping myself together and preparing mentally, physically, working out every day, trying to eat healthy, all that bullshit, cause I just wanna be top-notch, my peak for this tour.” He continued:
“I really don’t know for the unforeseen future if I’ll do a big tour again. Will we play some select shows in the future again?
Possibly. Maybe bring back the cruise and just do a few key things, but being in tip-top shape at what I’m calling the tail end of my prime, I wanna make this one big and if it is the last one, I wanna do it right, so this is a very special tour for me.”
Unfortunately, the promise to retire from the live stage wasn’t true, as Rock just announced a new summer tour affectionally called the ‘No Snowflakes’ tour.
Kid Rock just really hates snow, right? Possibly, but per Dictionary.com, Snowflake is a ‘political insult for someone who is perceived as too sensitive’, often used for millennials and liberals. Get it?
Anyways, if you really must, you can get tickets to the newly announced shows this Friday, March 10, at 10AM local time. The full tour is yet to be announced, but here are the dates so far:
Moody Center in Austin, Texas, on June 23 with Chris Janson. Dickies Arena in Fort Worth, Texas, on June 24 with Marcus King. Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tennessee, July 1 with Travis Tritt. Detroit's Little Caesars Arena with Grand Funk Railroad on July 14.
