Kid Rock is asking fans in the new technology world to give some old school courtesy to his upcoming shows.
The Clarkston-based Rock has posted a note on his official web site and social media noting that "myself, the band and crew have worked harder on rehearsing and putting this tour together than ever before" and adds that "I do not want it to be spoiled for anyone attending" by having photos or video clips posted online. Rock writes that, "It absolutely pains me to know people can see all the surprises and different songs we have worked so hard on after the first few shows!" and asks fans to "try to refrain from all of our addictions" and not post anything online.
In return, Rock promises "to post lots of goodies and insight on the road through Kidrock.com and other social media throughout the tour."
The tour, supporting last year's "Rebel Soul" album, kicks off Feb. 2 in Kansas City, Mo., and includes two shows -- so far -- with Bob Seger & the Silver Bullet Band on March 15 in Minneapolis/St. Paul and March 16 in Fargo, N.D. Rock has posted a photo of he and Seger preparing for the dates at his web site.
Rock has not announced any Detroit area dates yet but will play March 22 in Toledo, April 3 in Grand Rapids and April 5-6 in Saginaw. Details can be found at www.kidrock.com.
