The COVID-19 pandemic is not preventing Kid Rock from throwing a big party for his 50th birthday.
It just won't be in person.
The Romeo, Mich., native has announced a virtual "Birthday Hang!" to take place at 8 p.m. on the actual day, Sunday, Jan. 17. A social media message invites fans to "Put on your best birthday suit. (Hillbilly, Rock & Roll, or Hip Hop suggested attire). I'd love to celebrate my 50th birthday online with ya'll crazy Mofo's." Fans can register to attend via KidRock.com.
No other details were revealed about what the "Hang" will entail.
Rock (real name Bob Ritchie) and his Twisted Brown Trucker Band famously celebrated his 40th birthday with a concert at Ford Field that included guest appearances from Sheryl Crow, Anita Baker, Uncle Kracker, Martina McBride, Peter Wolf, Joseph "Rev. Run" Simmons and Cindy Crawford.
Rock's most recent hometown concerts took place during September of 2019 at the DTE Energy Music Theatre. Rock subsequently generated controversy for caustic comments about celebrities during a drunken rant at his Big Honky Tonk & Steakhouse in Nashville, and he also closed his Kid Rock's Made in Detroit restaurant in Detroit's Little Caesars Arena.
He more recently made news with a $100,000 contribution to the Barstool Fund, an initiative helping to fund sports bars and restaurants during the pandemic.
Rock has been working on a new album he's said will be released this year, but no further details have emerged about the project.
