Block Party, Kid Rock & Lions Rock Detroit

DETROIT (WWJ) – Downtown Detroit is packed with people attending the Kid Rock Concert at Comerica Park…in addition to the Detroit Lions pre-season opener at Ford Field.

There’s also a block party going on next to Comerica Park. Kid Rock decided to have a pre-concert party for Detroiters and fans as he mentioned on his website days ago.

Beth Fisher asked Laurie Bolden of Harrison Township how many Kid Rock concerts she has seen: “His concerts are wonderful, they are wonderful,” said Bolden.

Judy Taylor of New Baltimore and her friends stopped by the block party. They’re seeing Kid Rock: “He’s the son of Detroit,” said Taylor.

Kid Rock says he could have made more money holding the concert elsewhere, but held it at Comerica Park because he likes downtown. The parties are free and open to the public; you don’t have to have a ticket to the concerts to get in.
