The Palace box office will utilize a random number system when tickets for Kid Rock’s run of summer shows go on sale Tuesday morning, venue officials announced Friday.

Along with select Walmart locations, the Palace box office will sell tickets for the shows — Aug. 7, 8, 11, 12, 14 and 15 at DTE Energy Music Theatre — for $20. Tickets sold through other outlets, including online, will carry additional service fees.

Fans in line for tickets at the Palace box office Tuesday will be given a numbered ticket, and one ticket will be drawn to become the first person in line. The line will then form behind that person, according to ticket numbers; if ticket 326 is called, for example, 326 becomes the first person in line, followed by 327 and so on. The person with ticket 325 becomes the last person in line.

The venue parking lot will open at 7:30 a.m.; fans can begin lining up at 8 a.m. Only those in line by 9:30 a.m. will be given a numbered ticket; those without numbered tickets will line up behind those who have them. Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m.

Fans will be able to purchase tickets to one of the six shows in one seating location. Tickets are limited to 10 for lawn seats, six for pavilion and two for Platinum seating. Paperless ticketing will be used for some seats.

The six shows are likely just a starting point for Rock, who sold out a venue-record eight shows at DTE in 2013.
