Throughout the summer, Red Stag will be offering consumers in select markets access to a free Kid Rock download, as well as opportunities for VIP passes, access to post-show meet-and-greets, and Red Stag merchandise. Consumers will also have a chance to enter the “Call of the Wild” sweepstakes, which will grant one winner and three friends an all-access weekend to see Kid Rock perform live in Las Vegas, among other prizes.
