Kid Rock is teaming up with group of Detroit area titans to help raise money for U.S. cities in need. The singer assembled group of Detroit business leaders, who will donate to local charities, causes and people in cities on his upcoming tour.
Kid Rock’s 10-city Club Tour will take him to some of the nation’s most troubled cities, where he’ll skip the huge arenas he played on his recent Born Free Tour and go with much smaller venues. All funds will be distributed through the Kid Rock Foundation, who will partner with local radio stations to help determine how the money is distributed.
Kid Rock said he came up with the idea for the tour to coincide with his latest single Care, which is from his album Born Free. In a statement to the press Kid Rock said the following:
“The song says ‘the least that I can do is Care’ – and I want to put my money where my mouth is. Everyone knows that Detroit is hurting. But I want to show that even though we don’t have a lot on our own plate, it doesn’t mean the people of my hometown don’t have compassion to share with others all over the country. At the end of the day we’re all Detroit, we’re one country, one family”.
