After being kept off the stage for months and months, Kid Rock is very happy to be entertaining his fans live and in-person once again.

The very popular rock star took to social media to share his feelings about touring, 2020, and more this week. And in true Kid Rock fashion, his message was as brutally honest as he can be.

His social media message came out after he, unsurprisingly, rocked out on the Buffalo Chip Main Stage during the 2021 Sturgis Motorcycle Rally in South Dakota.

Kid Rock opened his Monday, Aug. 9, an Instagram post reflecting on what it has been like to be someone who spends so much of their professional time performing live in front of thousands and thousands of people. In addition to the comments he shared in the caption, the post included a photo of Kid Rock on stage in front of what appears to be a thrilled crowd of fans. You can’t see the rocker’s face. However, it’s obvious that he is enjoying his time in front of the packed house.

“People have asked me many times during this pandemic if I missed the road and performing,” Kid Rock honestly shared. “Somedays I did, somedays I did not.”

However, like most of us, the famous rocker didn’t realize he loved something until it was gone. And, performing as a headliner at the 2021 Sturgis Motorcycle Rally reminded him of how lucky he is to do what he does for a living.

“Once I hit the stage last night to a packed house in Sturgis, there is no question I did,” Kid Rock also said on Instagram.

What made his return to performing live on stage was the thousands and thousands of people who came to see him perform.

“But what I missed most of all was YOU, the fans. I hope everyone had a great time, I felt the love, and thank you for that,” Kid Rock also posted.

Kid Rock also made a political statement in his social media post on Aug. 9. In this part of his post, he called out those people who do not share his views – and the views of many of his fans. His closing statement in the post directly references the photo of him on stage in front of an excited audience

“There is nothing the mainstream media or internet and social media trolls can do but look at this pic and weep, knowing they will never beat us. F*** them, love to you all,” Kid Rock also said.
