Ted Nugent Tickets
6+. Under 18 must be accompanied by an adult.
Throughout his lengthy career, guitar wildman Ted Nugent has reveled in the controversy and criticism that always seems to follow in his path. While there's no denying his exceptional talent, his knack for penning arena rock anthems, or his standing as one of rock's top live acts, it's his pro-right wing beliefs, pro-gun advocacy and appreciation of hunting animals that have caused the most condemnation from his detractors. But by the same token, Nugent is a family man and one of the few hard rockers who has admirably stuck by his lifelong anti-drugs/anti-drink stance throughout his career.
In the '60s, Nugent formed his first bands, drawing inspiration from such British blues-rockers as the Rolling Stones and the Yardbirds. But it wasn't until the formation of the Amboy Dukes that the Nugent got his first taste of stardom. The band managed to issue several albums throughout the late 1960's including Journey to the Center of the Mind, and Migration. By the mid-'70s, Nugent decided to finally ditch the Amboy Dukes name and set out on his own, assembling a first-rate backing band. The band immediately struck a chord with the heavy metal/hard rock crowd from coast to coast, due to the band's over-the-top stage show.
By the release of 1977's Cat Scratch Fever, Nugent and his band was one of the top rock bands in the U.S., storming the charts and selling out arenas coast to coast. By now, Nugent had assumed the stage persona of a caveman, hitting the stage dressed in nothing but a skimpy loincloth and knee-high boots, and would often begin his show by swinging out on a rope à la Tarzan.
