Kid Rock Extends U.S. Tour With Powerman 5000

Rap-rocker adds 18 dates to outing, which continues into December.

Kid Rock has added 18 dates to his fall tour with hard-rockers Powerman 5000.

The outing, which is now set to end Dec. 10 in Louisville, Ky., is the culmination of a year in which the Detroit rap-rocker has ascended to stardom nearly a decade after releasing his first album.

Kid Rock (born Bob Ritchie) said earlier this year that his performance at Woodstock '99 in July was a milestone.

"I know I stood out, without trying to sound too cocky," he said. "Because that was 10 years of hard work and talent. I finally got to display it, solidify everything I've ever worked for. So that, for me, was the best" (RealAudio excerpt of interview).

Kid Rock's first album, Grit Sandwiches for Breakfast, came out in 1990. He toiled largely in obscurity until the release of 1998's Devil Without a Cause. It includes the hits "Cowboy" (RealAudio excerpt), "Bawitdaba" (RealAudio excerpt) and "I Am the Bullgod" (RealAudio excerpt), and is #7 on the Billboard 200 albums chart more than a year after its release.
