i can't imagine him going on that show and playing songs that are a year old. i'm fully expecting 1, if not 2 new songs.

agreed big time. that being said, i think i'd wanna ironically see kid rock for $20...if not only just to hear him scream "my name is kiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii iiiiiiiiiiiiiiii"
