CLARKSTON — Kid Rock plans to celebrate his 40th birthday in style during January.
At his annual Halloween party Saturday night (Oct. 30) at his rehearsal hall, Rock told the gathering of family, friends and radio programmers flown in from around the country that he would perform a special concert on Jan. 15 at Detroit's Ford Field, to be renamed "40 Field." Rock will be joined by several of his famous friends that night.
Then, on Jan. 17 — his actual birthday — Rock will be the subject of a Comedy Central roast at the Fox Theatre in Detroit.
More details, including ticket sale information for both events, are expected to be announced soon.
Rock, who performed Saturday afternoon at Stephen Colbert and Jon Stewart's Rally to Restore Sanity and/or Fear in Washington, D.C., performed eight songs from his new album, "Born Free," at Saturday's party. His Twisted Brown Trucker Band was re-christened the Clarkston Village People with members sporting various Village People attire.

The "Born Free" album comes out on Nov. 16. Rock is rumored to be performing at halftime of the Detroit Lions' Thanksgiving Day game on Nov. 25.
