KID ROCK BOUNCES BACK IN THE TOP 5 / TOUR DATES

kid-rock.jpgAfter debuting at #1 on the Billboard Top 200 album chart 40 weeks ago, Kid Rock’s “ROCK N ROLL JESUS” is once again a top 5 album, climbing to #5 on this week’s chart.  

Notching its 13th consecutive week of increased sales, the album has now reached the highest sales rank it has seen since Christmas 2007, scanning over 61,000 copies in the U.S. this week exclusively via physical sales.   To dates, “ROCK N ROLL JESUS” has scanned nearly 1.2 million units.    

“All Summer Long,” Kid Rock’s current smash, is now top 15 at Hot AC, Pop, and Rock radio formats, while the companion video is currently #1 on VH1’s countdown and is top 5 most played on the network in XL rotation.   CMT and Country radio are not far behind, with the record leaping up the country radio charts and being added to “Hot Shot” rotation on the network, where it is already a top 10 video on their countdown.   “ROCK N ROLL JESUS” is Kid Rock’s fifth consecutive platinum-selling studio effort, with no signs of slowing down.   A major campaign with Major League Baseball, coupled with continued sold-out summer shed shows and a just-announced August 22nd appearance on ABC’s Good Morning America with Lynyrd Skynyrd are sure to power the album through the summer.

After completing his first tour overseas since 2001 — with “All Summer Long” now a #1 single in Germany, Austria, and Switzerland, and top 5 in the UK — Kid Rock will continue his monstrous “Rock And Roll Revival Tour” into the fall, with additional dates listed below.   In Detroit, having already sold out 3 nights and over 45,000 tickets at DTE Energy Music Theatre, Kid Rock just placed an unprecedented 4th show on sale at the venue, which will no doubt sell out as well.
