Self-proclaimed "Greatest American hero" Kid Rock stopped by to perform an acoustic version of his 2008 hit "All Summer Long" and talk about the revolutionary structure of his new tour.
Tired of acts like The Rolling Stones charging as much as $650 for a ticket, Kid has set ticket prices for his Best Night Ever Tour at $20, and even got the beer down to $4. In addition, all of his merchandise will also be under $20, and the parking will actually be free. This is all obviously a gamble for Kid, because he's not taking any guarantees from promoters or venues (meaning if shows don't sell well, he doesn't get paid), but it's most definitely worth trying, so that his fans don't feel exploited.
The singer went on to inform Howard that Kool and the Gang will be touring with him on the first half of the tour, before ZZ Top takes over for the second half. (These are two bands Howard absolutely loves.)
Kid Rock then went to work on those in he field he takes exception with, first likening Justin Bieber to a modern-day Vanilla Ice, and then speaking on his desire for Maroon Five to get back to being a real band.
Lastly, when Howard mentioned that Hank Williams Jr, who is a good buddy of Kid Rock, uses dreaded "The N Word," Kid's responded by saying saying "we all use it." Despite having a mixed race son and working frequently with black people, Kid is quite comfortable with his choice of language.
Directly addressing one of two black bandmates currently in studio with him, Kid even casually asked "What's up, my nig?" right on the air.
