Multi-platinum heavyweights Kid Rock and Foreigner descended upon Auburn’s White River Amphitheatre this past Saturday as the last stop on the Cheap Date tour.

Athens, Georgia’s Packway Handle Band fired the opening salvo at the show, rousing up the nearly sold-out crowd with a set of rowdy bluegrass tunes.

Foreigner, featuring frontman Kelly Hansen and founder and guitarist Mick Jones, warmed up the crowd with a handful of their hit singles, including “Feels Like the First Time”, “Cold As Ice” and “Hot Blooded”.

The band featured the Muckleshoot Tribal School’s choir on the classic “I Want To Know What Love Is.”

Kid Rock shut the door on the show with his brand of down home American rap, rock and country.
