Production And Stage Manager Clayton Hutson Will Work On Kid Rock’s New Tour

Clayton Hutson has worked on some of the most popular and iconic music artists’ tours as a stage and production manager for nearly two decades now. Since he began his long career in the entertainment industry, he has done stage production work for musicians such as Prince, Guns N Roses, Kanye West, Pink and Jennifer Nettles, whose former band was Sugarland. His latest venture will pair him up with the controversial rocker Kid Rock as he prepares to go on his 2nd US tour in 2018. The name of the tour will be the Red-Blooded Rock N Roll Redneck Extravaganza Tour, and it will kick off in August.


This won’t be the first time that Clayton Hutson has worked with the Detroit born musician, being that he was a stage manager on his previous show called The American Rock N Roll Tour. Since Kid Rock has been known to be very outspoken on his political views and beliefs, these things will have to be considered in order to make sure that his latest tour doesn’t end up being disastrous or offensive. With the skills that Clayton Hutson has developed over time, he will most likely be able to deal with this type of situation in a way that will keep the shows on the right track.


He has said that when he manages shows for his artists, he takes their thoughts and feelings into consideration so that he can make sure that the audience will experience performances that are both beautiful and unique. He feels that he usually knows what’s going to work and what’s not going to work when it comes to putting a show together. His ability to plan out everything in order to get the best results from an artist’s performance is one of the reasons he has been so successful as a production manager.


Clayton Hutson got his stage management training from Central Michigan University, where he earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Theater Design and Technical Production. He also earned an MBA degree from the University of Michigan’s Stephen M. Boss School of Business. He worked in the field of entertainment production for a number of years before he eventually started his own company. The Nashville based touring manager has been the VP of production for Ronin Event Creative since 2001. In addition to managing Kid Rock’s new tour, he will also be working with other artists who plan to go on the road soon.
