DETROIT — One of the signature restaurants at Little Caesars Arena will no longer bear Kid Rock’s name.
Ilitch Holdings announced early Wednesday that the musician has “voluntarily decided not to renew” his lease for Kid Rock’s Made in Detroit restaurant, which has operated since the arena opened in 2017.
A statement attributed to Chris Granger, president of sports and entertainment for Ilitch Holdings, said a new concept will be introduced in the space, which “aligns with our community and company values.”
The announcement comes days after the emergence of a video in which Kid Rock, onstage at his Nashville bar and apparently drunk, directed a graphic rant toward Oprah Winfrey. The Ilitch statement did not directly cite that incident.
