Kid Rock announces modest four-show run at DTE Energy Music Theater


Kid Rock, metro Detroit's rebel without a cause, announced his first set of hometown shows since courting controversy and teasing a Senate run during the christening of Little Caesars Arena with six consecutive shows in 2017.

On Friday, it was announced that Kid Rock would take the stage for a relatively modest four-show, two-weekend run at DTE Energy Music Theater on Sept. 6 and 7 and Sept. 13 and 14. The performances, dubbed "Hot September Nights," mark Kid's return to DTE. He last performed at the outdoor venue in 2015 with a record 10-show spree over the course of two weeks with Confederate flags spotted aplenty, proudly displayed throughout the Badass Beer-guzzling crowd.

It is safe to say that one could expect more MAGA hats this time around.

Tickets ($39 for lawn seating) go on sale starting on Saturday, April 6 at 10 a.m. and can be purchased here.
