The infamous rocker, Kid Rock, is set to blow the roof off The Pearl Concert Theater on New Years Eve and now the American badass will continue the party into New Year’s weekend with a second performance to take place Saturday, January 3, 2009, at 8:00 p.m.
Grammy award-nominated Kid Rock released several successful albums including Devil Without A Cause in ’98 which includes smash hits, “Bawitdaba,” “Cowboy” and “Only God Knows Why” in addition to becoming Diamond Award certified by RIAA with more than 10 million copies sold. The History Of Rock album released in 2000 hit number two on the Billboard Album Chart as well as receiving triple platinum certification by RIAA as more than 3 million fans ran out to purchase the follow up album. Cocky, quickly released one year later, includes a top 10 hit Rock sang with Sheryl Crow entitled, “Picture” – showing a softer, country influenced side of Rock. The album received outstanding reviews, went platinum four times and continued to stay on the Billboard 200 Album Chart for more than 100 weeks.
In 2003, Rock released a self-titled album followed by a tribute album to Bob Seger entitled Live Tucker (2006) and another album Pickin’ On Kid Rock: A Badass Bluegrass Tribute (2007) to show his down home bluegrass side with guitars, banjos, mandolins and harmonica sounds. In late 2007, Rock released Rock n Roll Jesus which has held steady on the charts and recently had a 27% increase in sales due to the hit single “All Summer Long” crossing genres and hitting both adult contemporary and hot country play lists.
