Kid Rock is joining forces with Foreigner for a 24-city US tour in spring/summer.

The Bad Reputation Tour will kick off in Evansville, Indiana on April 6, and run through to September 17, when the self-proclaimed American Bad Ass will headline the second of two shows in his home state of Michigan. 

Hard rock pioneers Grand Funk Railroad and Jason Bonham’s Led Zeppelin Evening will appear at select dates, with country singer Trey Lewis, best known for his 2020 single Dicked Down In Dallas, appearing at all shows.

Foreigner guitarist Mick Jones says: “We are so looking forward to touring again with our good friend Kid Rock. Our 2015 tour across the US introduced Foreigner to a whole new audience and I will never forget the wonderful times we had with him on his ten-show sold-out run in Detroit. I remember so well standing side stage watching some of his electrifying performances. I wrote Dirty White Boy as a tribute to Elvis [Presley], but it also serves as a tribute to Kid Rock. I look forward to dedicating that song to him every night during the tour.”
