DETROIT (CBS Detroit) Never one to shy away from controversy, Detroit’s own Kid Rock took on the music establishment this week, calling Jay-Z and Justin Timberlake concerts “highway robbery.”
Appearing on the Piers Morgan show, Kid Rock — who recently added his sixth $20 show in metro Detroit — called out his Hollywood friends.
“It’s gotten out of hand, the price of concerts, the price of entertainment period,” Kid Rock said. “You know, whether it’s a sporting event, going to the movies, buying a soda there, whatever. What do I do? I’m a musician, obviously I play concerts.”
