Kid Rock will open the new Little Caesars Arena next week.
But a civil right organization in Detroit is now planning a protest and wants his concerts cancelled because Kid Rock has criticized NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick. During a concert last month in Iowa, Kid Rock told fans that “football’s about ready to start,” then went on to say, “You know what? F—k Colin Kaepernick.”
Kid Rock has 6 concerts scheduled at the $860 million, 20,000-seat arena, starting Tuesday.
The request to cancel Kid Rock’s concerts came from the National Action Network’s Detroit chapter, which plans a protest next week. The group has previously criticized Kid Rock for has displaying the Confederate flag at concerts.
