Crews Prepare For 2 Sold-Out Kid Rock Shows 1-20-2011

He's Michigan’s native rocker, and this weekend Kid Rock is coming to your backyard.
The star, whose real name is Bob Ritchie, will be at the Dow Event Center for two shows beginning Friday at 7:30 p.m.
Ten tractor-trailers from Upstage Productions line the street behind the event center.
They are empty now after workers unloaded them to put together the stage and sound equipment for Kid Rock’s two sold-out weekend shows.
But with the recent debacle over fake tickets for his 40th birthday bash in Detroit, how are local organizers making sure everything is on the up and up?
Rock also had a sold-out show last Friday at Ford Field, but100 to 200 ticket-holders for the show were turned away because they bought bogus tickets off of Craigslist. The person selling the fraudulent tickets has been arrested.
So how do you prevent that from happening to you? Well, it all depends on who you bought your tickets from. Officials said you shouldn’t have any worries if you bought your tickets from the Dow Event Center box office, Ticketmaster or Kid Rock's fan club.
But if you bought them from any other venue, buyers beware.
