Kid Rock: Jay-Z, Justin Timberlake Tour Is ‘Highway Robbery’

Don't count on Kid Rock pulling out his suit and tie.

The Detroit-raised rocker is taking issue with musical pals Jay-Z and Justin Timberlake, blasting their forthcoming "Legends of Summer" tour for its lofty ticket prices.

"It's highway robbery, I don't care who you are. I would consider both of them friends in the business but I don't agree with it," Rock said during a recent appearance on "Piers Morgan Tonight."

"It's garbage," he added. Tickets for the Jay and JT show start around $90, and max out around $250.

The "Cowboy" singer pontificated on the value of, well, value. He says he took a pay cut for his own Reben Soul summer tour, insisting on $20 ticket fee.

"I've always tried to keep prices at what I think are fair. I've always said I'm proud that I can walk around with my head held high knowing that I haven't taken an [honest] dollar from a working man," said Rock.

Some venues will also offer $4 beer specials, $20 food packages, and even free sandwiches in certain markets, according to Rock (real name Robert James Ritchie).

Reps for Timberlake and Jay-Z were not immediately available for comment.

It's not all pocket-lining for Beyoncé and Jessica Biel's guys: Jay-Z is offering an all-expense paid trip to the New York stop on his tour with Timberlake to a lucky fan who donates as little as $5 to his non-profit Shawn Carter Foundation.

The package also includes a look at his Life + Times editorial offices and dinner at the 40/40 club, where he and Bey have previously hosted fetes like fundraisers for President Obama's reelection campaign.
