Kid Rock To Play At Comerica Park This Summer

Kid Rock announced he'll be playing a hometown concert at Detroit's baseball park this summer.
That's not surprising, considering the 40-year-old Detroit-based musician makes a habit of playing local gigs.
It's how he made the announcement Thursday that was slightly unorthodox.
Rock, Detroit Red Wings captain Nicklas Lidstrom and retired Red Wings defenseman Chris Chelios used paddle boards to cross the Detroit River to Belle Isle. A bare-footed Rock then strolled to a beachfront microphone and lectern and said he'd be playing Comerica Park Aug. 12 with opening act Sammy Hagar and the Wabos.
The rocker says Chelios called him a day earlier and asked if he wanted to go paddle-boarding.
Knowing his booking manager wanted him to announce the August show soon, he combined both activities into one.
