Fresh from the November release of his self-titled album, Kid Rock is preparing for an arena tour in 2004. The trek will begin with a Jan. 22-23 stand in Saginaw, Mich.; 11 dates have been confirmed so far, through Feb. 14 in Raleigh.
Rock will be backed by his band Twisted Brown Trucker — guitarists Kenny Olson and Jason Krause, keyboardist Jimmie Bones and drummer Stefanie Eulinberg. Released by Atlantic Records, “Kid Rock” debuted at No. 8 on the Billboard 200 last month and has sold 378,000 copies in the U.S., according to Nielsen SoundScan.
Cable music-video network VH1 will on Dec. 14 air “A Kid Rock Christmas,” a variety show featuring performances by Rock and special guests.
