Kid Rock still defying critics

He used to tour with a giant inflatable middle finger as a stage prop, and it's kind of fitting in a way, as Kid Rock's career has been all about flipping the bird to the many naysayers and critics who lampoon his redneck rap rock 'n' roll.

But, hey, clearly it works for him, as Kid Rock has shown remarkable staying power, continuing to rack up multiplatinum sales while many of his late '90s peers like Korn and Limp Bizkit struggle to keep pace. Ice-T said it: Rhyme pays.

See Kid Rock at 8 p.m. Thursday at The Pearl at the Palms, 4321 W. Flamingo Road. Tickets are $49, $69 and $89; call 944-3200.
