Kid Rock has apologized to fans for lighting up at a smoke-free concert venue in Michigan last week.
The Born Free hitmaker was attending a Travis Tritt show in Detroit on Friday when he illegally fired up a cigar.

The rocker’s behavior angered fellow fans in the audience and the singer has now taken responsibility for his actions, blaming his negligence on his alcohol-induced state.

He tells, “My most sincere apologies to the patrons I may have offended, and a big middle finger in advance to all the haters and attorneys who will somehow try to find an easy paycheck in all this… I doubt I’m the first one to ever make a bad decision while being intoxicated.”

However, a 58-year-old Tritt fan, who suffers with asthma, hasn’t taken so kindly to the star’s apology – he plans on filing a formal complaint with city health department officials.
