Kid Rock has won his legal battle against Feld Entertainment to continue calling his tour 'The Greatest Show on Earth'.

The 47-year-old musician - whose real name is Robert James Ritchie - had legal documents filed against him by the entertainment company which owns the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus, after they claimed they owned the rights to the name, which has previously been used by the company, including as the title of a 1952 drama movie about the circus.

However, on Monday (22.01.18), a judge sided with the 'All Summer Long' hitmaker, after they shot down a preliminary injunction filed against the star, according to The Blast.

In siding with Kid Rock, the judge stated that Feld Entertainment failed to establish that the tour would tarnish the 'Greatest Show on Earth' name, and said that Rock has a right to free expression given that he also has a song with that name.

Earlier this month, the musician changed the name of his tour to 'The American Rock N Roll Tour', after saying in court documents he didn't want the lawsuit to distract him or his fans from the tour and his music.

He is now able to change the name of his tour back again, though it is unknown at the time of writing whether or not he will do so.

Despite the judge ruling in Kid Rock's favour, Feld Entertainment are reportedly pressing on with their lawsuit for copyright infringement against the 'Only God Knows Why' singer.

Feld Entertainment operated the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus which was founded in 1871 and became defunct in May last year, and the company was known for regularly using ''the Greatest Show on Earth'' as a slogan for their travelling circus company.
