The 24-city "Bad Reputation Tour" will kick off on April 6 at the Ford Center in Evansville, Indiana, making stops across the U.S. in Nashville, Boston, Chicago, and more before wrapping up with two shows in Detroit.
Asked in a new interview with Rock Band Reviews what he would say to those FOREIGNER fans who are reluctant to come out to see the band because of Kid Rock's involvement with the tour, FOREIGNER bassist Jeff Pilson said: "If they're not coming because of Kid Rock, if it's musically oriented, well, I would say listen to Kid Rock; he's a great artist. I mean, yes, he's a rapper and maybe some people don't like rapping, but there are definitely songs in there as well, And his band is great, and the audience is very enthusiastic. It makes for a great show. So I would say there's absolutely no reason to not come out. I mean, if you're politically against Kid Rock, I guess that's one thing, but, hey, listen, we're not letting politics get in the way. We're all getting up there in very friendly terms and just make it a great rock show."
