The shows will take place on Friday, August 21st and Saturday, August 22nd, with tickets going on sale May 2nd at 10 am. These shows shatter previous ticket sale records for the state of Michigan, previously held by Garth Brooks (approximately 107,000 tickets, with Kid Rock expected to sell over 145,000) and the record held by his good friend Bob Seger, for most shows played in a row at the venue.

Kid Rock’s First Kiss: Cheap Date tour will take place over 40 shows, starting June 23rd in Hartford, CT and wrapping up September 5th in Auburn, WA, just outside of Seattle and will feature very special guests Foreigner on all dates. Tickets for the show are $20 from the front to the back, with capped charges on service fees ensuring that tickets will stay under $30 in most every market.
