Kid Rock is bringing back his popular “Best Night Ever” tour for a second year, including 6 nights in August at DTE Energy Music Theater. All tickets on his upcoming U.S. trek from the second row to the lawn will be priced at $20, with reduced parking and service fees keeping the total cost below $30. Participating Wal-Mart outlets will also offer “all-in” tickets that include parking in the $20 total. In addition, Rock is holding the first row open for random fan upgrades and is making 1,000 tickets from each show available through a special program to ward off scalpers.
- Special tour T-shirts will also go for $20 and selected draught beers will cost just four dollars.

- The jaunt kicks off on June 24th in Hartford, Connecticut and will continue into early September.
