Kid Rock appeared on Piers Morgan Interview last night to touch upon everything from legalizing marijuana to sharing his business strategies on his upcoming summer tour.
At a time when most artists have high ticket prices, the Michigan-born rocker is putting together a bill that will offer seats for $20. It is meant to be an affordable option when he plans on promoting his 10th studio album, Rebel Soul.
“I’m a musician. I play concerts. I’ve been very fortunate. I’ve always tried to keep prices what I think are fair,” he said. “I’ve always said I’m proud that I could walk around with my head held high and look someone in the eye, knowing that I haven’t taken an un-honest dollar from a working man.”
Rock also spoke about his contemporaries such as Justin Timberlake and Jay-Z. Recently, the pair announced their Legends of the Summer concert series, where Morgan pointed out tickets “are going for about $225 each.”
“It’s garbage. It’s garbage. It’s highway robbery. I don’t care who you are, you know?,” Rock said of artists charging for tickets. “I would consider both of them, you know – in a circle of friends in the business, but I don’t agree with it.”
