Kid Rock, the self proclaimed “Devil Without a Cause,” performed in the Mohegan Sun Arena on February 13th. His intriguing mix of rock, hip-hop, country, and funk left the crowd screaming for more.
Kid’s awesome talent and endless energy amped up the crowd as he moved from one instrument to another ending with his drum solo.
Kid performed his worldwide hit single, “All Summer Long” – a song reminiscent of Lynrd Skynard’s “Sweet Home Alabama” – and a variety of covers including “Everyday People” (Sly & The Family Stone) and “Tumblin Dice” (Rolling Stones). Midway through the concert, Kid brought Peter Wolf, lead vocalist for the J Geils Band, onstage to rock out to “Must A Got Lost” and “Love Stinks.”
The crowd howled and stomped the bleachers, the noise reverberating throughout the 10,000 seat arena, as they begged for an encore. Kid responded with “So Hott” and rock anthem “Bawitdaba.” At the end of the concert, Kid, shirtless, sweaty, and just barely keeping his pants up, shouted, “God bless and ROCK ON!”
