Ted Nugent tickets - Ted Nugent Tour

Ted Nugent Schedule

Ted Nugent is the powerhouse when it comes to rocking arenas and venues with his confidence and musical prowess. He is one of the most iconic musicians that is still playing after four decades and is showing little signs of stopping himself from doing what he loves and was clearly born to do. He is quite the legend that has long been perpetuated by his "on-air" persona that demands attention from across the spectrum of fandom, as well as media. He has spent much of the last few years on VH1 reality programming where he continues to shape his television identity on shows like Super Group and Surviving Nugent. While It is not another Ted Nugent reality show, it is your opportunity to see him play his greats live. One can be expected to hear his rock and roll tunes like "Cat Scratch Fever" and "Stranglehold" in person. Keep a close eye on StubHub for tickets as they come available in your town and the news. Recently, Ted Nugent has cancelled some concerts due to some controversy. Fans of Ted Nugent are likely to be no stranger to his outspoken nature or are likely just there to enjoy the music setting aside politics. Whatever the case may be, the music of Ted Nugent speaks for itself.

Ted Nugent Background

Detroit, Michigan is the stomping ground from which Ted Nugent arose. At the young age of six, Nugent picked up the guitar and started to play by teaching himself. By the age of fourteen, he started a band called the Lourds. They were considered quite talented and were given the opportunity to impress the crowd at the 1964 Michigan State Fair. It was because of this performance that the band was invited to join the Beau Brummels and the Supremes as an opening act. Later that year, Ted Nugent moved to Chicago where he fronted a band called Amboy Dukes. Following graduation, the Amboy Dukes front man decided to move back to Detroit where he sought new members for his band. It was not long in the Motor City before the band signed a deal with Mainstream Records and set out to release its debut album. The band received quite a bit of success nationally and had a single on the top of the pop charts.

The band's live shows were impressive and involved using props and pyrotechnics, and even live animals. The outrageous stage performances and Ted Nugent's stage presence lead to the band referred to as Ted Nugent and the Amboy Dukes. Eventually, Ted Nugent set out on his solo career. His most successful album has been Cat Scratch Fever, as it's record sales eventually topped off at more than three million copies. A few of the hits included the following rock anthems: "Out of Control," "Cat Scratch Fever" and "Workin' Hard, Playin' Hard." At the end of the 1970s, Ted Nugent elected to take a short hiatus from the music industry. He then released two albums in the mid 1980s: Penetrator and Little Miss Dangerous. When the nineties rolled in, Ted Nugent collaborated with Jack Blades and Tommy Shaw to establish Damn Yankees. Ted Nugent was never shy about his political leanings and has often been on the soapbox of such self-proclaimed "right-winged" predilections on gun ownership. While it has been argued to have negatively affected his musical career to some extent, Ted Nugent continues to play shows and garner the fans' attention. In 2000, Ted Nugent opened for the KISS Farewell Tour. Like Nugent, Gene Simmons is reportedly a self-identified right-wing compatriot on some issues.

In 2012, Nugent found himself at the center of another political debate regarding gun control when he spoke out against Bob Costas who publicly stated a need for gun control. According to Nugent's Tweet, "We thought Bob Costas was smarter than that. Only fools blame tools instead of human failings. Shame Bob." Alas, it isn't just gun rights that get Nugent fired up. Ted Nugent has been associated with a significant number of philanthropic organizations that include Mothers Against Drunk Driving.

Regardless of Ted Nugent's political leanings, he has had one impressive musical career that started at an early age. Ted Nugent's studio albums during his solo career are listed in chronological order: Ted Nugent (1975), Free-for-All (1976), Cat Scratch Fever (1977), Weekend Warriors (1978), State of Shock (1979), Scream Dream (1980), Nugent (1982), Penetrator (1984), Little Miss Dangerous (1986), If You Can't Lick 'Em...
