Kid Rock, ZZ Top to play Bethel Woods on Sept. 6
Whether you are itchin' to sing the nonsensical chorus of "Bawitdaba" or are seeking a symposium on "Legs" and how to use them, Kid Rock and ZZ Top will bring the rock to the Bethel Woods Center for the Arts on Sept. 6, with a little help from special guest Uncle Kracker.
The rockers are the latest act confirmed to play Bethel Woods (200 Hurd Rd., Bethel; 866-781-2922; www.bethelwoodscenter.org). Tickets are $29, and a member presale kicks off at 10 a.m. Tuesday, April 16.
A five-time Grammy nominee and one of the top-selling artists of the late '90s and early '00s, Rock's biggest hits include "Cowboy," "Bawitdaba," "All Summer Long" and the duet "Picture" with Sheryl Crow. He'll team up with the classic rock icons ZZ Top, a 2004 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee famous for its epic beards and even bigger hits like “Gimme All Your Lovin’," “Sharp Dressed Man” and “Legs." The show also will feature Uncle Kracker, who charted with "Follow Me," "Smile" and his cover of Dobie Gray's "Drift Away," which he performed with Gray.
This summer's Bethel Woods shows also include performances by Joan Baez and the Indigo Girls (June 22), Heart (June 29), Dave Matthews Band (July 2), the Eagles (July 25), Tim McGraw (July 26), Bad Company and Lynyrd Skynyrd (July 27), Blake Shelton (Aug. 11) and John Mayer (Aug. 20).
