After news broke last week Kid Rock is to play opener for Detroit's forthcoming Little Caesars Arena in September, fans were left wondering if they can expect to hear some new music played by the rockstar. After much silence on the matter, Rock is finally revealing the future state of his music.
"Yeah, we'll have a record...before the shows, yes," he shared with Billboard. That's the plan now."
Rock will be spending 2017 on a series of concerts spread sporadically throughout the year before the launch a full-scale tour following his album launch. With his concert dates rapidly approaching, the rockstar is working on his set from Nashville where he has obtained a residence in addition to his homes in Michigan and Alabama.
So what can fans expect to hear exactly?
"It's kind of going back to Rock n Roll Jesus, Devil Without a Cause," shared Rock. "I've got a lot of different things on there -- big rock songs, rootsy-sounding stuff, some hard-core rap stuff, kind of all over the board. I do have a lot of songs, but I'm not sure what I'm going to put on the record or how I'm going to release it yet. It's like the wild west right now, so we'll see."
Rock is set to open the Detroit arena in a series of shows spread over four nights in September. CEO of Olympia Entertainment, Tom Wilson, explained Rock opening the arena "just makes sense." The "Cowboy" singer will open the arena ahead of both the Detroit Red Wings and the Detroit Pistons who will find home at Little Caesars Arena in their upcoming competitive seasons.
