Kid Rock is taking a stand for your wallet!
The singer recently appeared on Piers Morgan Tonight, and when the host asked him about Justin Timberlake and Jay-Z charging ticket prices as high as a whooping $225 for their upcoming tour, he had some choice words for the dynamic duo:
"It's garbage. It's highway robbery. I don't care who you are… I would consider both of them in a circle of friends in the business but I don't agree with it."
Yikes! We love JT and Jay as much as the next person, but the man has a point! Tickets are getting CRAZY expensive lately!
Well Mr. Rock is also literally putting his money where his mouth is and is making sure the ticket prices for his Best Night Ever tour stay low low low!
The singer is charging fans a mere 20 bucks for each of his shows and even struck up a deal with concert venues to make sure parking and merchandise is affordable as well!
Kid is estimated to lose up to $100,000 a night due to the low prices, but he says it's all worth it as long as the fans have a good time:
"I've always tried to keep prices what I think are fair. And 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… I make a lot of money. I can take a pay cut."
How awesome is that?!!
It's not every day that you see musicians willing to cough up a little money of their own for the sake of the fans, but hopefully other bands will follow suit so we don't have to burn a hole in our pockets every time we go to a concert!
Rock on, Kid Rock!
