Kid Rocked Kelowna
Thursday, July 10, 2008
I went to the Kid Rock show here in Kelowna yesterday evening. I'm not really a big fan or anything, we just wanted to check out his Rock n Roll Revival tour. Man on man I must say, I was highly entertained by Kid Rock. The show was fantastic!

He played for two solid hours combining the genres of blues, country, rap and rock. The man is a pimp and he knows it. He has the energy of a 7 year old kid who has just consumed five packs of Smarties. He started the show with all of the fanfare that you would expect. Entering the stage in a white suit with a hat and dark shades on.... the crows erupted as he broke into song, jumping around like a kid on a trampoline.

His band, the Twisted Brown Trucker Band was cool and featured backup singers, two guitarists, a bass player, a sax player and a couple of very talented female drummers. Kid Rock knows how to bring the house down. He played his classics and a couple of new tunes. In between songs he acknowledged the crowd and the city of Kelowna, Canada. The huge disco ball with strobe lights left the audience stunned and at times blinded.... but man it was all for rock n roll. Dare I say that I have become a fan of Kid Rock?

Oh I new about Kid as far back as 1999 when his song "Bawitaba" hit the airwaves. That's may favourite Kid Rick tune and I was happy when Kid Rock played it as his final song yesterday night. I had seen Kid Rock perform on TV a number of times and thought that he was a little cocky, but was he any good? I mean he did marry Pam Anderson and has been know to be in the odd scuffle or two.... was he as badass as he said he was? After seeing him perform live, I would have say yes he is. The man has got skills. His raspy voice can turn soulful when he plays songs like "Amen" or "Picture".

He played a lot of great songs (I didn't realize that he had that many...). Some of the memorable ones included:
  • Rock n Roll Jesus
  • Devil Without a Cause
  • Only God Knows Why
  • American Bad Ass
  • Lowlife (Living The Highlife)
  • All Summer Long
  • Roll on
  • So Hott
  • Bawitdaba
All of the new songs that Kid Rock played were pretty cool. I liked the extended version of "Amen" where Kid stopped the tune and told everyone to "slap five" with somebody next to you that you don't know. I believed that Kid Rick sincerely wanted everyone to get along and to enjoy the rock and roll show. I also like "Roll On" a catchy tune that made you Rock n roll is about energy and there was a lot of energy in Prospera Place yesterday evening.

I wondered how some of the older folks in front of me were reacting to all of the F-Bombs that were being delivered by Kid Rock? The band, the man and the tunes were entertaining. Listening to a local rock radio station on the drive to work. it seemed that a number of other people that attended the show were entertained as well with many saying that was the best show that they have ever seen. No one ever missed the fact that Reverend Run (formerly of Run-Dmc) was absent from appearing.

When all was said and done it was a great show. There was a lot of energy and fun. There were also some touching moments such as when Kid Rock paid tribute to his old friend Joe C. It was a cool show.

For those of you who think Kid Rock is just a redneck rapper, you might want to think again. The man is entertaining. According to the LA Times, he does well with album sales too.

Thanks for the performance.

His name is Kiiiiiiiiiiiiiiid..... it's Kid baby, Kid Rock....

    I also attended Kid Rocks concert in Kelowna on that Wednesday night, the 2nd time seeing him in 4 nights. I saw him the Sunday before in Vancouver also. My big disappointment of both shows... the crowd turnout in Vancouver. It was shameful that so many people did not get to experience the show that Kid Rock puts on. I first saw him a few years ago in Seattle, which made me say, if he ever came close again, I'd be back. He's show is amazing, it pumps you up, it makes you wonder how a 'badass' can sing such great tunes and have rock you out. I just wished I could have seen him in Calgary also. I hope that he is willing to travel this way again sometime, cuz if he does, I WILL BE BACK again. A concert experience worth going to.
