ROCK 'EM SOCK 'EM KID

By DAN AQUILANTE

October 11, 2007 -- ON most days, Kid Rock couldn't fit his ego into a room as small as the Fill more - but to celebrate the release of his latest album, he managed to squeeze his arena act down to showcase size.

Tuesday's performance in the club setting was a rap 'n' roll bash. It was part concert, part "Man Show," with the Kid firing up testosterone levels with love 'em 'n' leave 'em songs, arena guitar riffs and a couple of smokin' fantasy girls. Said girls occasionally sang backup - but most of the time, they just swiveled hips under short skirts and pantomimed the sexual action in Rock's songs.

The Kid wasted no time warming up the burly fans, who were soaked in sweat and swilling beer. He rushed onto the stage and rocked out with the powerful title track of the new disc, "Rock N Roll Jesus."

Remember the ego thing?

In "Rock N Roll Jesus," the Kid is singing about himself. But really, who's going to argue with a guy who's decked out in a white evangelical suit, arms reaching toward heaven and screaming, "Testify, this is a rock 'n' roll revival."

The new material is strong, but longtime Rock aficionados were no doubt pleased by all the classics played in this two-hour showcase, which featured "Devil Without a Cause" and "Cowboy," as well as the hard-edge rappers from "Cocky." In a way, the only tune in the set that seemed out of place was his huge radio hit, "Picture."
