Kid Rock and Detroit Symphony Orchestra To Perform Together
Kid Rock and the DSO will take to the stage to raise $1Million to help save the Detroit Symphony Orchestra. The concert will be May 12, 2012 at 8pm at Detroit’s historic Fox Theatre for a one-night fundraising concert to raise money for the legendary orchestra.
The idea was originally conceived by Kid Rock and Rock Ventures Founder Dan Gilbert to help save the DSO. Tickets are $100, $150, $250 and $350. There are also a limited number of “Rock the Symphony” VIP packages which include premiere seating and access to an exclusive after party.
Kid Rock, the Fox Theatre, Leonard Slatkin, and the DSO are volunteering their services for the concert. All proceeds will go to the DSO which also funds outreach, engagement and community service work.
“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 Bans, a 80 piece orchestra and “Bawitdaba” together will be well worth the price of admission.
Tickets go on sale Saturday March 3, at 10am and can be purchased at Olympia Entertainment, and Ticketmaster.com. 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.
