Kid Rock

Sorry I Was Smoking ...

But I Was Really Drunk!

1/16/2012 10:10 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0116_kidrock_BN_01Kid Rock says he's VERY sorry for lighting up a fat stogie at a non-smoking venue during a Travis Tritt show in Detroit on Friday ... saying he was way too hammered to know better.

Rock was in the audience at the Andiamo Celebrity Showroom in Warren, MI -- when he fired up a cigar about 15 minutes into the show.

It's not only against the law to smoke at bars in MI -- but it REALLY pissed off a 58-year-old asthmatic man who was in the audience. The man says he plans to file a report with the health dept.

Rock says he feels really bad about the situation ... saying, "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."

Rock says he had been drinking pretty heavily at the time -- and explains, "I doubt I'm the first one to ever make a bad decision while being intoxicated."

And he won't be the last.

Like Kid is the first one EVER to light up during a concert... PLEASE. I just went to a concert last week(a smoke free venue) and ppl were smoking cigs and "other" kinds of cigs. They are making a BIG deal over this because of who he is. Like he said "just a paycheck". Rock on KID!!

Sorry if I offend anyone who is reading this comment BUT I have been to several of Travis Tritt concerts and there was more pot smoking people their including Dr.'s, Attorney and other CEO's of big companies and none of them complained and yes Kid should have been more aware of the none smoking thing but I think this dude is out to get a Million dollar payout. I think this is alittle much I have severe asthma and I don't think this stands any merit. so to both KID ROCK and Travis Tritt I love ya both and I will see u guys again when you come down to Raleigh, NC till then keep on rockin and smokin.
