Confirms tour may be last at concert

Kid Rock

There weren’t many quiet moments during Kid Rock’s nearly two-hour appearance Friday night at Pine Knob Music Theatre.

But a key one came late in the show.

Taking the stage alone and idly picking at an acoustic guitar, Rock confirmed to the hometown crowd what he’s been hinting at for a couple of years now: This may very well be his final tour.

The Romeo-bred rap-rocker is 51, as he pointed out. He’s been performing for three decades, he went on to say, and he’s got two grandchildren. He’s eager to spend time with.

“You never know what the future holds,” he said. “But if we do a few events a year, it’d be a pretty safe bet that something will be in Michigan.”

At the very least, Rock said, he’s definitely taking a break.

“Maybe we’ll get bored in a few years and go at it again,” Rock said. “But I tell ’em every night (on the tour): If this was my last time here… it’s been great. I thank all of you especially, here in my hometown, for an unbelievable life beyond my wildest dreams. You’ve been such a huge part of that. And I will forever love you so much.”
