Kid Rock Rocked Jazzfest


I was standing right there in the middle of the whole show, watching this legend rock the crowd. I love Kid Rock and I love his music. So when I found out that he was performing at the Jazzfest & Heritage Festival here in New Orleans, you know I stuffed my face with food and walked as fast as I could with my drink to get a good view. The one thing I learned about rock concerts is that you have to get to the stage as early as you can. The best view is in the front and middle. So I squeezed my little self into the center.

I arrived right on time.

Kid Rock came out and started performing "Rock N Roll Jesus" first. I started swinging my body back and forth and showing the rock star sign with my fingers. I lost total control and I was jamming my butt off.

Whenever I hear rock music, it feels like home. The community is so emotionally attached to their artist when they hear their music. The lyrics and beats that comes from rock song touches my heart. I love everything about it. So you know what was going on with me when I started hearing this man.

A few tracks later, he started to play "All Summer Long," one of the most romantic songs I have ever heard. However, I was by myself in the crowd. So I had no one to sing it too. But in the end, I loved it. He ended the concert with "Born Free." This is one of my favorite songs of all time. I love the lyrics, the feeling, the whole rhythm revolving around the album.

I walked away from that concert feeling like I drained all my energy from yelling and moving. But in the end, it felt like home. I arrived home, got on the computer and kept on playing "Rock N Roll Jesus." It was the best concert and Kid Rock did his thing. I hope I get to see him in concert again.
