Kid Rock and the Detroit Symphony Orchestra may not seem like the most natural pairing in the world.
But in an attempt to save the orchestra, which is in need of funds after a six month strike last year made its financial issues even worse, the collaboration will happen, the Associated Press reports.
Tickets for the May 12 show at Detroit’s Fox Theatre will be sold for between $100 and $350. Kid Rock is aware that the price is high.
“I think a lot of people will want to do it, because it’s a good thing for a cultural institution in Detroit,” Kid Rock said of the prices to WRIF-FM (via Detroit Free Press.) “I’m excited, but it’s also a lot of pressure.”
Organizers hope the concert will raise $1 million. A lot of pressure, indeed.
