Kid Rock Teaming Up With DSO For A Benefit Concert

DETROIT (WWJ) – Call it Detroit’s musical version of the Odd Couple. Kid Rock is teaming up with the Detroit Symphony Orchestra for a benefit concert at the Fox Theatre on Saturday, May 12th, with the orchestra reinventing many of his hits.

“Rock The Symphony” is aimed at raising critical funds for the orchestra, and all proceeds from the one-night-only concert will be directed to the DSO, which also funds outreach, engagement, and community service work in schools, hospitals, retirement centers, places of worship, and community centers across Southeastern Michigan.

“As a musician, and of course a Detroiter, I am proud to be supporting this longstanding cultural institution,” said Kid Rock. “And while I know these ticket prices are more than what my fans are used to paying, I am confident that whatever happens when we put the Twisted Brown Trucker Band, a 80 piece orchestra, and “Bawitdaba” together will be well worth the price of admission.”

Tickets go on sale Saturday, March 3 at 10 a.m. and range from $100 to $1,500, with high-end tickets including an after party. They can be purchased at and

Tickets are also available without service fees at The Fox Theatre, Joe Louis Arena and Hockeytown Authentics in Troy box offices. To charge tickets by phone, call (800) 745-3000. For more information on “Rock The Symphony” VIP packages including premiere seating and after party access, please call the DSO offices at (313) 576-5100.
