Whether or not you like rap rocker Kid Rock's music, you’ve gotta admire the approach he’s taken on his current tour. Tickets only cost $20 and he's made it difficult for scalpers by enlisting a “paperless ticket” policy for all dates of the tour, including the one coming up on Tuesday at Blossom Music Center.

One person who’s praising Kid Rock’s approach is Michael Marion (pictured). Four years ago, Marion worked together with other concert venue owners and promoters to form the Fans First Coalition in order to fight the legislation that would ban paperless tickets. Marion, who currently works as the General Manager of Verizon Arena in Little Rock, serves as president of Fans First.
