Kid Rock and Pamela Anderson's wedding tour rolled into Oakland County over the weekend.

The two celebrities, who have held previous ceremonies -- and parties -- in France, Nashville and Beverly Hills, Calif. -- tied the knot again on Saturday. The festivities started with a ceremony at the Clarkston Union Bar & Kitchen, a favorite of Rock's (real name Bob Ritchie); the bride wore a white wedding dress while the groom sported sneakers with his black tuxedo. Rock's son and Anderson's two sons wore white tuxedos.

The couple then changed to more casual attire (Anderson donned a Detroit Tigers jacket) to entertain about 150 friends and family members in a heated tent set up on Rock's multi-building Clarkston compound. Guests included Bob Seger and former Detroit Red Wing Brett Hull, members of Rock's Twisted Brown Trucker band -- including former guitarist Kenny Olson -- Detroit rapper Trick Trick, the bride and groom's parents and Rock's three siblings.

Clarkston Union also catered the party with a menu that included prime rib lobster macaroni and cheese, bottles of Jim Beam whiskey on every table and plenty of Coors beer, which Rock has endorsed in the past. A DJ kept the guests dancing until about 1:30 Sunday morning.

It was the fourth - and, supposedly, final -- wedding celebration this year for Rock, 35, and Anderson, 39, who got engaged in April of 2002 but broke up for a time. They began on July 29 on a yacht in St. Tropez, France, then got formally hitched on August 3 at a courthouse in Beverly Hills, Calif. The Nashville affair included a midnight ceremony on August 16.

Wedded bliss hasn't kept the two from their work. Rock released a concert album this year, "Live Trucker," and played Detroit area concerts in February and May -- the latter of which were filmed at the Palace of Auburn Hills for an upcoming DVD. He also duets on Seger's new album, "Face the Promise," and has been working on an album of new material of his own.

Anderson, meanwhile, recently launched a gambling web site called pamelapoker.com and is working on a new film, "Blonde & Blonder"

As for a joint production, Anderson wrote on her official web site in August that she's "not pregnant yet. But we have consummated the marriage."
