Kid Rock announced in early March that he will be headlining a 4-city “No Snowflakes Tour” that is set to kick off in Austin, Texas, on June 23. Stops in Fort Worth, Nashville and Detroit will follow. Tickets went on sale March 7 and were met with huge demand causing Rock to add additional concert dates for Nashville and Detroit.

The “No Snowflakes Tour” takes its name from the derogatory phrase “snowflake.” The term was popularized by the 1996 novel and 1999 movie Fight Club, which includes the line, “You are not special. You are not a beautiful or unique snowflake.”
“Snowflake” later took on a political meaning around the time of the 2016 election when the term was adopted to insult the political left who were upset by the outcome of the election. It’s no surprise that ultra-conservative Kid Rock is using the term in his tour title. He also used the term “snowflake” in the lyrics for “Don’t Tell Me How to Live.”
