One of my buds at work bought a Kidd Rock ticket for his upcoming concert in Nashville. He told me today printed on the ticket it says Kidd Rock, Dickey Betts plus special guest? Anyone know what's up?

Dickey is supposedly playing in Kid Rock's band and opening.

I understand Dickey and Duane will be part of Kid's band. I read a review of a recent Kid show(sans Dickey) in the last week or so, and it included a member of J Giels (did Centerfold, must have been something w/ the strippers Kid employs!). They also covered Buffalo Springfield's For What it's Worth. Can't believe I'm saying this, it did not sound horrible. I'm tempted to go try to grab an extra the night of since the venue here is 2 mi from my house, just to see for myself and not judge.

Detroit Free Press review

The Rock and Roll Revival tour marks the latest of Rock’s periodic efforts to enhance his live show: an old-school revue tour featuring guest artists supplying a diverse array of music. In this case, the enlistees were Run, funk-rock vocalist Peter Wolf and Southern rock icon Dickey Betts, all backed in various formations by Rock’s newly customized Twisted Brown Trucker band.

The guests did their thing in short stretches, spliced amid Rock’s own set. Wolf, still wiry and gyroscopic at 61, hopped out for an early performance of his J. Geils Band chestnut “Love Stinks” before returning for a fun 10-minute set that included the wiry “Detroit Breakdown” and “Musta Got Lost,” complete with the charismatic Wolf’s famous stage patter.

A more modest Betts was joined by Rock for a run through the Allman Brothers’ “Ramblin’ Man,” a shaky number — lighting miscues and all — saved only by the familiar white-lightning tone of Betts’ guitar lead.

After a brief intermission, Rev. Run paired up with Rock to swap rhymes on a handful of old Run-DMC classics: “It’s Tricky,” “You Be Illin’,” “King of Rock” and the crowd-raising “Walk This Way.”

Kid Rock’s long history of area performances, a schedule that has often featured three or four hometown shows annually, has left Detroiters well acquainted with his live repertoire. But this was a markedly different sort of show for the locals — the kind of night when traditional show closer “Cowboy” could get moved substantially forward in the set list.

Rock kept his set’s first half relatively mellow and low-key, as if to reserve some of the audience energy for his guest’s spots. He drew frequently from his latest record, “Rock and Roll Jesus,” allowing the crowd to familiarize itself with the newest members of his road band — most notably Detroit sax man Dave McMurray, who graced “Roll On” with a jazzy soul solo, and Pontiac guitarist Marlon Young, whose fluid, fiery leads were a premium addition to the band.

Rock cranked things up as the show zoomed in to a close, pulling from his standard bag of stage fare before bringing out his guests for an odd if well-intentioned group cover of Buffalo Springfield’s “For What It’s Worth.”

It wasn’t a perfect night: The staggering of guest sets kept the show from building a proper momentum, and Rock’s own indulgence in his Rock and Roll Revival imagery — complete with exhortations to fans to exchange greetings of fellowship — often felt clumsy and forced.

But it’s clearly a concept with promise, and Rock’s live show was certainly due for an overhaul. With the right tweaks, the right attention to pacing, he just might find himself looking at a concert approach that will pay dividends well into the future.

I heard Dickey Betts is opening for Kid Rock, not playing with him.
Although I'm not sure which would be worse.
Dickey, you can't be that hungry!

Truth be told, Maggie and I might go to see Dickey. I just don't think I could handle too much Kid Rock, though.

He and Duane are playing in Kid Rock's band on this tour according to info I've read.

Its a match made in hell. I just hope the allman brothers do not team up with KC and the Sunshine Band.

Dickey and his son Duane are part of Kid Rock's backup sounds. Rock is doing more country than rap now anyway.
