It was a double-header weekend for Detroit rocker Kid Rock, who took the stage at Boulevard Pool in the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas on Friday and Saturday nights.

After an opening set by DJ M!keAttack, Kid Rock took to the outdoor stage and kicked off a fast-paced and high-energy set with “Devil Without a Cause.” Before continuing with “You Never Met A Motherf*cker Quite Like Me,” the longhaired rocker remarked how excited he was to be in Las Vegas.

He reminded the audience mid-song by switching the lyrics from “But I’m a Michigan boy, can you feel that?” to “But I’m in Vegas now, can you feel that?” During the show, Kid Rock played multiple instruments and worked the wheels of steel as his alter ego DJ Bobby Shazam.

The concert also included “Rock N’ Roll Jesus,” “Cowboy” and “Bawitdaba.” Food Network star and UNLV alumnus Guy Fieri (Guy Fieri’s Vegas Kitchen & Bar at the Quad) watched the concert from backstage with friend and business colleague Reid Strathearn of Grand Krew: A Guy Fieri Co.

Upcoming performances at Boulevard Pool: Night Riots (Thursday); Dash Berlin (June 19); Bleachers (June 26); GoldBoot, American Cream and Almost Normal (July 3); Big Data (July 10); Slightly Stoopid with Stephen Marley (July 16); Jurassic 5 with Dilated Peoples (July 17); Mac Miller with Black Boots (July 24); Rebelution with Iration and DJ Mackle (Aug. 14); Interpol (Aug. 21); and Thirty Seconds to Mars (Sept. 20).
