Kid Rock is returning to arenas in 2008 with his Rock and Roll Revival Tour, which kicks off Jan. 25 in Evansville, IN and concludes March 22 in Toledo, OH. A host of friends will join Rock on the 29-date trek, including Reverend Run from the rap group Run-DMC, as well as other special guests at stops throughout the tour.

Rock’s latest album, the critically acclaimed “Rock n Roll Jesus,” recently debuted at #1 on the Billboard charts, and he appeared on the cover of Rolling Stone’s “Hot Issue.” The past few years have given the rocker ample material for his storytelling-style of songwriting. He married and divorced Pamela Anderson, got into numerous fights, including one with Anderson’s ex, Tommy Lee, at the MTV Video Music Awards this year.

In addition to selling more than 20 million records in the U.S. alone, Rock has proven to be an inveterate road warrior, playing top-selling shows on countless cross-country and international tours throughout his career.
