Kid Rock heading to Kelowna

Kid Rock's promoters announced Wednesday he'll be performing in Kelowna May 18 as part of  the Canadian leg of his Born Free tour, which is in support of his new album with the same name.

After shaking up the European Music Awards in Madrid and the CMA Awards in November, Kid Rock appeared on the live broadcast of the American Music Awards. A documentary entitled “Kid Rock: Born Free” aired across MTV, Vh1, and CMT, adding to the huge visibility leading up to the release provided by TNT and ESPN sports campaigns featuring the album’s first single, Born Free. The companion video to the song is already receiving accolades across the channels.

The album, which is not available via iTunes, is available at all major retailers including Target, Wal-Mart, Meijers, Amazon, and FYE  and also at, for the first time ever, non-traditional retailers Little Caesars, Radio Shack, and Boot Barn, as well as on KidRock.com.

Kid Rock’s last album “Rock ‘N Roll Jesus,” released in 2007, debuted at #1 and stayed in the charts for 100 weeks, becoming the biggest selling Rock album of 2008.  His hit single “All Summer Long” hit #1 in 8 countries and provided Kid Rock the opportunity to expand his huge touring base outside of America.

Tickets on sale Saturday, March 12 at 10 a.m.
