Kid Rock recently wrapped up his ‘Chilin’ The Most’ 2012 cruise and he posted the following on his facebook page: FINALLY! Just finally had the time to go thru all the wonderful gifts everyone on the cruise brought me. So much fun, cool, heartfelt stuff! I won’t need to buy a t shirt or hat all year!
Still in the studio working hard, enjoying my time off the road and getting my “constitution” together for a new record in the fall and a big tour in 2013! I think summer is finally here as well! Yeehaw!! Thanx again for all the gifts, too kind of everyone! – Kid Rock
Check out this Los Angeles Times article on the exploding market for ‘rock’ cruises, including Kid Rock’s ‘Chillin’ The Most’ cruise:
MIAMI — The Carnival Destiny cruise ship hasn’t even left port, and half the ship’s guests are already wasted.
Passengers pack the lobby bar, balancing luggage with buckets of ice-soaked beer bottles, and flashing room keys that double as charge cards to keep the drinks flowing.
When it’s time for a mandatory safety drill, the life-saving instructions playing over the vessel’s intercom can barely be heard over sounds of drunken guests stumbling over one another, spewing obscenities, cheering, slapping high-fives and yelling chants like “Ain’t no party like a … Kid Rock party.” Read the rest of the article here: www.latimes.com
The Detroit Symphony Orchestra, Kid Rock and Rock Ventures LLC met their goal to raise $1 million at a concert earlier this month.
The DSO and Kid Rock performed for a sold-out crowd of 5,000 Saturday (May 12) at the Fox Theatre. The event marked the world premiere of Kid Rock’s hits arranged with orchestra accompaniment.
The money raised will help fund DSO performances at schools, churches, retirement communities, nursing homes, hospitals, community centers and other gathering places across Southeast Michigan, making classical music accessible to everyone, the DSO said in a release.
Besides raising money to support the DSO’s operations, the event “also raised awareness of the DSO to a new generation of Detroiters who are critical to the long-term viability of one of Detroit’s cultural gems,” said Dan Gilbert, chairman or Rock Ventures and Quicken Loans Inc.
