Kid Rock paid tribute to Eddie Money on Friday night (Sept. 13) at a venue that had become an adopted home for the late singer.
Rock and his Twisted Brown Trucker band played a version of Money’s hard rocking “Shakin’,” a hit song from 1982’s No Control, during their concert at the Detroit-area DTE Energy Music Theatre, formerly known as Pine Knob. The group accompanied their performance with a video screen photo of Money and the caption 1949-2019.
“I’m sure you heard that Eddie Money passed away today,” Rock told the crowd. “And not only was Detroit like a second home, I’m sure many of you know that Pine Knob was absolutely his house. He opened this place every summer for decades. So we wanted to come sing one tonight and pay tribute to him. So rock on Eddie.”
