Country News: Kid Rock Gets O.K.
A judge has ruled in Kid Rock’s favor as far as naming his tour. He will be allowed to name his 2018 tour, as he originally planned, Greatest Show on Earth Tour. A lawsuit was filed by Feld Entertainment in December. Feld owns the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus, which used The Greatest Show on Earth as its slogan for decades. On tasteofcountry.com Rock did say he would change the name to American Rock n Roll Tour so there is no word if he will use that name or the original.
