DETROIT (AP) -- Rapper-rocker Kid Rock is teaming up with the Detroit Symphony Orchestra for a one-night benefit concert.

Tickets go in sale Saturday. They start at $100, with top price levels including an afterparty.

Kid Rock was born Robert Ritchie. He's known for dabbling in musical styles from hip-hop and hard rock to country and Southern rock.
