Kid Rock got everyone’s attention on Monday when he shared news on his Instagram that he will be headlining several concerts this summer as part of his “No Snowflakes Summer Concerts.”
He captioned the post, “KID ROCK ANNOUNCES FOUR 2023 ARENA DATES. THE FOUR-CITY LIMITED RUN WILL FEATURE DIFFERENT SPECIAL GUESTS ON EACH NIGHT: CHRIS JANSON, MARCUS KING, TRAVIS TRITT, AND GRAND FUNK RAILROAD.”

The post included information that pre-sale tickets will be available starting March 7, with general sales opening Friday, March 10. More information can be located on his website.
The concerts start in June in Austin, Texa, at the Moody Center, followed by one in Ft. Worth at the Dickies Arena. In July, the singer — whose given name is Robert Ritchie — will entertain fans in Nashville, Tennessee, at the Bridgestone Arena before ending the concert series in his home state in Detroit at Little Caesars Arena.
The outspoken conservative country singer recently slammed “dumb liberals” — whom he said had moved to red states and brought their “effing politics” with them — when he mounted an effort to prevent the former home of late-legendary country music star Hank Williams from being destroyed, as previously reported.
“We are sick of seeing history torn to the ground,” Ritchie said. “Whether it be in the form of monuments, statues, and now something so important here in Nashville, like the former home of Hank Williams, Beechwood Hall. … Where does this end?”
“We kind of knew that from the beginning, once this fiasco started that it was never going to end,” he added. “And now we kind of feel like we’re under an invasion from the state of California, which we understand in a lot of ways. I have a lot of friends here that come from these spots — California and New York City.”
“A lot of people say it, and they say it under their breath, but they’re scared to say it out loud,” Kid Rock continued. “So, once again, I’ll be the guy: They come here leaving these woke policies from those cities for better schools, lower taxes, lower crime. You have talked about it a million times. We kind of tell them to leave your effing politics at the state line from where you’re coming. And this is just one more example.”
