Dayton OH – November 19, 2010
Kid Rock’s recently released album Born Free is about to get some sales support from the star himself.
Not so surprisingly, they’re calling it the Born Free 2011 tour, and Jamey Johnson will be the opening act at the Nutter Center in January.
The day of the concert will be exactly three years since he played to a very responsive crowd at Hara Arena, but this time, they apparently needed a bit more space and have moved across town to the Nutter Center on Saturday, January 29, 2011 for a 7pm show.
In a just received press release, the Nutter Center says, “After shaking up the European Music Awards in Madrid last week and the CMA Awards on November 12th, Kid Rock will appear on the live broadcast of the American Music Awards on Sunday, November 21st.”
When last in town, Kid Rock was supporting the 2007 release of “Rock ‘N Roll Jesus,” which the release points out “debuted at #1 and stayed in the charts for 100 weeks, becoming the biggest selling Rock album of 2008.”
Can the Dayton market take credit for that? You bet. Ok, maybe we had help from cities like New York and Los Angeles and Chicago, but the line outside of Hara on that cold day in January of 2008 made it clear that Kid Rock has some dedicated fans in the area.
The release explains that there is a “flurry of promotion surrounding this release.
“A documentary entitled “Kid Rock: Born Free” will start airing across the MTV, Vh1, and CMT on November 16th, adding to the huge visibility leading up to the release provided by TNT and ESPN sports campaigns featuring the albums first single, “Born Free.””
“The companion video to the song is already receiving accolades across the channels after debuting last week.”
