Local Detroit

Kid Rock is reportedly readying the biggest hometown show of his career: A Jan. 15 blowout at Ford Field, it was announced at the rocker's private Halloween party Saturday night.

There's only one problem: Ford Field is already booked that day with Monster Jam 2011, a monster truck rally that's been on the schedule for months. Tickets for the Monster Jam went on sale in May.

Rock's Ford Field date has yet to be officially confirmed by promoters or venue officials.

It was also announced Saturday that on Jan. 17, Rock's 40th birthday, Rock will be feted at Detroit's Fox Theatre at his own Comedy Central Roast, but Comedy Central or Fox Theatre officials have not yet confirmed the event.

Rock, whose new album "Born Free" is due out Nov. 16, is also expected to play at halftime of the Detroit Lions Thanksgiving Day game.

Saturday afternoon, Rock performed at the Stephen Colbert and Jon Stewart-hosted Rally to Restore Sanity and/or Fear in Washington, D.C. He performed his new song "Care" alongside Sheryl Crow.
