Kid Rock Keeping Prices Low

Remember Kid Rock’s 2014 “$20 Best Night Ever” tour where the Detroit rocker kept tickets at affordable prices?  Guess what?  He’s doing it again.  This time with Foreigner.

In an effort to combat scalpers, Rock is taking the seats ranging from the second row to the lawn and selling them for $20.  With the deal including reduced parking and service fees, the final price will be $30 or under.

But that’s not all, folks.

$20 all-in tickets will be offered at participating Walmarts and at venue box offices.  Fans buying these tickets will receive coupons giving them $2 off the purchase of Rock’s new album, First Kiss.

To fight off the scalpers, promoter Live Nation will take 1,000 tickets from each show and sell them via the company’s Platinum ticketing program.

And those front row seats?  Those will be dispersed among the fans as instant upgrades.  The shows will also include $20 special food packages, $4 draught beers and special $20 T-shirts.

Arriving in stores Feb. 24, First Kiss is Rock’s first release on Top Dog/Warner Bros. Records.  Rock will debut the album live when he performs at the Daytona 500 Feb. 22.  He will also make the media rounds, appearing on “The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon” Feb. 23; NBC’s “Today Show” Feb. 24 and on Howard Stern’s satellite radio show Feb. 25.  For the first time in his life Rock will tackle tweeting when he takes over the iTunes Twitter handle at 5 p.m. Feb. 19 EST.

Available for pre-order, First Kiss is streaming now on iTunes Radio.
