Kid Rock: With his hit singles and musical style encompassing rap, metal, country, and rock, Kid Rock has proven himself to be one of the most versatile musicians of our generation. Kid Rock has collaborated with everyone from Sheryl Crow to Too $hort, and Willie Nelson to Run DMC. He has several multi-platinum selling albums and he has toured virtually non-stop since he hit the scene twenty years ago. The Kid Rock concert schedule 2011 has been released with Kid Rock tour dates scheduled across the United States this spring and summer.

Kid Rock scored a record contract with Jive records while he was still a teenager; however, his debut album Grits Sandwiches For Breakfast, stalled on the charts in 1990 and he was quickly let go from the label. He spent the better part of the decade releasing EPs and LPs on underground indie labels, waiting for the chance to breakout big. During this time, Kid Rock's sound evolved and he incorporated rock and metal into his raps and hip-hop beats. Kid Rock's live shows were generating recognition for him in his home state of Michigan and in 1997, an A&R exec from Lava/Atlantic Records noticed Kid Rock at a show in Cleveland. Kid Rock signed a deal and production began on his breakout hit album Devil Without A Cause. In true Kid Rock fashion, he butted heads with label execs and sought full creative control over the album's content. The album established Kid Rock's long-stay on the Billboard charts and in the entertainment industry. The album was certified diamond status for selling in excess of ten million copies in the United States and earned Kid Rock a Grammy nomination for Best New Artist in 2000. To capitalize on his new found success, Kid Rock re-released tracks from his earlier work and released the complication album, The History of Rock, in 2000. The album was certified double platinum and Kid Rock toured in support of both albums. Kid Rock tour dates were booked at the Summer Sanatarium Tour with Metallica and Korn in 2000.

Kid Rock continued to evolve his musical stylings and released his follow-up, Cocky, in 2001. This album featured country and southern rock singles alongside the rap-rock style that made him famous. The album was a sleeper success and sales picked up when he released the single, "Picture," his country duet with pop-rock star Sheryl Crow. The record startled his label who thought it ran contrary to his bad boy image. However, Kid Rock proved them wrong as the single remains his highest charting Billboard Hot 100 release to date. The 2001 Kid Rock concert schedule featured a headlining stint on the "Cocky Tour," with Lit and Tenacious D. In that same year, Kid Rock tour dates were booked as the opening act for Aerosmith on their "Girls of Summer" Tour.

Kid Rock returned to the studio and released a new self-titled album in 2003. The album abandoned Rock's signature rap-metal sound and focused primarily on country and southern rock elements. Kid Rock continued to play live shows but made limited appearances until he released his 2007 hit album, Rock and Roll Jesus. The album featured his first international hit, "All Summer Long," and marked his transition into a southern rocker. The album was his first #1 on the Billboard 200 and was certified three times platinum. Kid Rock tour dates were scheduled and he embarked on the 2007-2008 "Rock'n Roll Revival Tour" featuring Lynyrd Skynyrd and the 2008 "Rock n Roll Revival European Tour".

Kid Rock is back on tour in support of 2010's "Born Free," album. The Kid Rock concert schedule has the rocker touring the US throughout the spring and summer.
