Kid Rock will bring his Bad Reputation tour to Tampa’s MidFlorida Credit Union Amphitheatre in June with special guest Foreigner.

The tour, which will also include Grand Funk Railroad and Jason Bonham’s Led Zeppelin Evening, will be in Tampa on June 11. It is in support of his album Bad Reputation, which will be released this year.

The album is said to bring back his ‘90s-style rap-rock for an artist who has largely embraced heartland rock with a country twang. The project is slated to be a triple album composed of hip-hop, rock and country songs.

Kid Rock was last reported in the Tampa Bay area in 2019 as a wedding guest of Tampa Bay Lightning’s website and in-game reporter Caley Chelios, who married former Tampa Bay Buccaneers 2016 draft pick Dan Vitale. He also performed between the games during the NHL All-Star Game at Amalie Arena in Tampa in 2018.

His last concert here was at Amalie Arena in 2018 on a double bill with Brantley Gilbert.

Kid Rock made waves recently with an early release from the new album called Don’t Tell Me How to Live. The song blames millennials, “snowflakes” and woke folk for the wrongs in America.

Tickets go on sale Friday at livenation.com. There is a presale at 10 a.m. Thursday with the code FRONTROW.

The Michigan rap-rocker who broke out in the ‘90s has sold more than 30 million records worldwide with such hits as Bawitdaba, Cowboy and All Summer Long.
