Straight from the Motor City, American Badass Kid Rock will bring his over-the-top live show to Ervin J. Nutter Center on Saturday, Jan. 29. On tour supporting his new album, Born Free, Rock has come a long way since the days of “Cowboy,” “Bawitdaba” and his short-lived marriage to Pamela Anderson. Showing a much more serious, country-flavored side on the new release, the artist has also been spending much more time on non-music related projects like producing his own lines of “American Badass” beer and “Made in Detroit” clothing, and working with a long list of charities including MDA, the Rainbow Connection and the USO. Kid Rock will appear Saturday, Jan. 29 at the Nutter Center, with opening act Jamey Johnson. Tickets range from $25 to $89; show starts at 7 p.m. More information can be found online at www.kidrock.com or www.nuttercenter.com.
