Kid Rock chose an unusual way to announce the Aug. 12 show. Along with Detroit Red Wings captain Nicklas Lidstrom and retired Red Wings defenseman Chris Chelios, Rock paddle-boarded across the Detroit River to Belle Isle where he announced the show at a microphone-equipped lectern on the beach.

Rock referred to the hockey players as his “new security detail.”
