Kid Rock Sells Out Detroit

Kid Rock made music history in Detroit when he sold out a pair of dates at Joe Louis Arena in record time. The first concert, scheduled for February 3, sold out in six minutes, a new personal best for the Detroit native. A second show for February 4 was immediately added and sold out just nine minutes later. The shows were set to be a precursor the Super Bowl being held in Detroit on February 5.

A favorite son of his native Michigan, Kid Rock released his first album, The Polyfuse Method, in 1993 but he didn’t hit super-stardom until his fourth release, Devil Without a Cause, in 1998, though he often received more publicity for dating Pamela Anderson.

Kid Rock plans to release a live album in February, corresponding with the Detroit shows and will follow that up with a studio album this year as well. The Detroit shows also put an end to a year long touring hiatus.

    I bought 2 tickets through Ticketmaster over the phone for this concert on Dec 23rd! I got awesome seats and had a great time! Everyone keeps asking me how I got these tickets….and I really don’t know – if your article is true!

    Amy,

    I’m not sure if this is what happened in this case, but I know that sometimes as you get closer to the actual date of the event, the artist releases tickets that were on hold for their guests.

    I have picked up good seats before just days before a show this way.
