Kid Rock has apologised to fans for lighting up at a smoke-free concert venue in Michigan last week (begs09Jan12).
The Born Free hitmaker was attending a Travis Tritt show in Detroit on Friday (13Jan12) when he illegally fired up a cigar.
The rocker's behaviour 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.
