Angel’s Rock Report–Kid Rock, Disturbed
Kid Rock is teaming up with the Detroit Symphony for a benefit concert. The goal of the May 12th show at the Fox Theater in Detroit is to raise $1 million to keep the symphony in business. Tickets run from $100 to $350, and Kid Rock says, "As a musician, and of course a Detroiter, I am proud to be supporting this longstanding cultural institution. 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 Band, an 80-piece orchestra and 'Bawitdaba' together will be well worth the price of admission."
King's X drummer Jerry Gaskill is recovering from a heart attack he suffered Saturday night. Gaskill is in stable condition after having surgery at an undisclosed hospital. King's X bassist-vocalist Doug Pinnick tweeted early Monday, "Jerry woke up pulling cords out -- he's fiesty! That's a good sign. Thanks, everyone, for prayers and good vibes."
The band announced last night that their North American tour, due to start at the end of March, has been canceled.
Disturbed will jump on the vinyl bandwagon for Record Store Day on April 21st. The Collection includes all five of the band's albums spread over six discs. (Ten Thousand Fists is spread over two records.) You can pre-order the set now through Disturbed's online store.
