Kid Rock and Lynyrd Skynyrd have announced that they will join forces again for a new tour this summer, reprising last year’s highly successful “Rock and Rebels” tour. The Live Nation produced tour kicks off in West Palm Beach, FL, at the Cruzan Amphitheatre with a 22 market trek through outdoor amphitheaters across the country. Tickets go on sale beginning March 20th, for specific on-sale dates and additional ticket information go to livenation.com.
Kid Rock’s Rock ‘N Roll Jesus debuted at #1 in 2007 and became the #1 selling rock album in America in 2008. Sales of the record continue to grow with 4 million albums sold worldwide to date, aided by a pair of Grammy nominations and an amazing performance on the telecast featuring his expanded 11-piece Twisted Brown Trucker Band, who will once again accompany him on tour. His next single, “Blue Jeans and a Rosary,” is shipping to radio outlets now.
Ranked as one of the best-selling bands of all time by the Recording Industry Association of America and recent Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductees, Lynyrd Skynyrd is still going strong with 30 million albums sold to date, and over 80 performances annually. To date, the Southern anthem “Sweet Home Alabama” has passed the 2,000,000 mark in downloaded master ring tones, proving that Lynyrd Skynyrd is a major industry icon that appeals to all generations.
