Kid Rock Announces First Annual Fish Fry
Kid Rock knows how to throw a party, and he's certainly getting ready to throw a big one. The Southern rocker has announced plans to host his first annual Fish Fry on Oct. 9 and 10, at Fontanel in Nashville.
In addition to the fish fry, the two-day event will include music by Rock and other guests, a Ferris wheel, fireworks and local food and drinks.
Various VIP packages, named after the singer's hit songs -- "Roll On," "Born Free" and "Livin Large" -- allow guests several upgraded experiences, including close seating, indoor restrooms, a private suite, food and beverage service, a pre-show pizza party with a performance by comedian Chris Porter and a pajama party with an open bar, late-night snacks, music, casino tables and a pancake breakfast, all attended by Rock himself.
More information on the Fish Fry, including ticket purchases, is available on the event's website.
Rock has been in the news recently thanks to protesters who have called for Rock to stop displaying the Confederate flag, especially after the tragic shootings at Charleston, S.C.’s Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church on June 17, in which nine people were killed. During a Fox News segment on the protests, host Megyn Kelly read on air a written statement from Rock: “Please tell the people protesting to kiss my … ask me some questions.”
However, Rock's publicist, Nick Stern, says that the singer has not had the flag on his stage in "more than five years."
“He was saying these protesters ‘can kiss my a–,’” Stern explains. “Not ‘kiss my a–, I’m going to use the flag.’”
