Kid Rock to host FREE pre-concert block party


A 10-story Ferris wheel, midway games and a bevy of Badass Beer will be on tap this weekend ahead of Kid Rock’s concerts at Comerica Park.


Kid Rock’s Badass Beer Block Party is the official designation for the pre-show festivities Friday and Saturday, when the hometown rocker will play for crowds of 40,000-plus at the downtown ballpark. Details were announced today.

The block parties, which will include a Badass Beer tent and food vendors, are free and open to those without concert tickets.

The official festivities will be just north of Comerica Park, across from the Hockeytown Café on Woodward — up the street from the site of block parties for Rock’s Comerica Park shows in 2009.

Kid Rock karaoke sessions and a mechanical bull will be part of the scene, with prizes to include Badass Beer swag and Made in Detroit merchandise.

Proceeds from the rides and games will go to the nonprofit Kid Rock Foundation.

Also to be given away are two Badass Beer guitars and a pair of VIP tickets for each night’s show.

The events kick off at 2 p.m. Friday and noon Saturday. Stage time for opener Ty Stone & the Truth will be at about 6:30 p.m. each night in Comerica Park, with performances by Sammy Hagar and Kid Rock to follow.

Expect the area to be thumping both days: Tent parties will also be held at Cheli’s Chili Bar next to Comerica Park and at the Town Pump Tavern down Montcalm. Several after parties are in the works as well.
