Kid Rock will perform with the Detroit Symphony Orchestra at a one-off benefit show at the Fox Theatre in Detroit on May 12 to raise money for the symphony. The orchestra is commissioning arrangements for the event from Rob Mathes, who has previously orchestrated songs for Sting and Mary J. Blige.
The show is the brainchild of Quicken Loans chairman Dan Gilbert, who reached out to Rock in the hopes of settling the Detroit Symphony Orchestra's six-month strike last year. Gilbert convinced Rock to play the benefit, which hopes to raise $1 million for the orchestra.
Tickets for the show will go on sale on Saturday, ranging in price from $100-$350. There will also be a V.I.P. package, including admission to an after-party, available for $1,500.
