Kid Rock Slams Jay-Z and Justin Timberlake’s High Ticket Prices
Kid Rock is hitting the road this summer for his “Best Night Ever” Tour with guest ZZ Top and Uncle Cracker. The tour rolls in to SPAC on September 4th and tickets prices for the tour are very low – So low that you can pick up a tickets at Capital area Wal-Marts for just $20 (starting Saturday, April 20th at 10am)
Kid Rock has gone on record to slam high concert ticket prices. He even dismissed the proposed $225 ticket price that Jay-Z & Justin Timberlake could be charging for their up coming tours. “It’s garbage. It’s highway robbery. I don’t care who you are”, says Rock, “I would consider both of them in a circle of friends in the business but I don’t agree with it.”
Kid Rock will lose close to $50,000 to $100,000 of his “take home” per show this summer but the rocker claims he is okay with that; “I’m proud that I could walk around with my head held high and look someone in the eye, knowing that I haven’t taken an un-honest dollar from a working man… I make a lot of money. I can take a pay cut.”
Because of the pay cut, fans can enjoy cheaper parking at the venue, merchandise, and ticket prices.
Tickets for the SPAC show go on sale Saturday morning at 10am at all Ticketmaster Locations, LiveNation.com, or by phone at
Tickets will be $24 (plus fees) but if you purchase your ticket at participating Capital Area Wal-Marts, your ticket will $20 flat (that’s an all in-clusive ticket price).
