Ted Nugent Announces Summer 2018 Tour
Ted Nugent has added more dates to his The Music Made Me Do It 2018 summer tour.
He had already announced a series of California shows to take place from June 27 to July 2, and now his schedule runs to Aug. 5. More dates will probably be added later. Nugent’s home-state show in Clarkston, Mich., takes place on July 20 and features special guests Blue Oyster Cult and Grand Funk Railroad’s Mark Farner.
You can see the list of concert dates below.
Last year, Nugent said that, even though he’d happily accept induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, he was convinced it would never be offered to him because the organization’s “boss hogg,” Jan Wenner, was opposed to his pro-guns stance. “And until they get their heads out of their ass, I'm more than happy to do what I do and do it with all the vim and vigor that I do it every night,” he said.
Even though Nugent said in 2017 that he’d no longer indulge in the kind of “hateful rhetoric” he’s become infamous for, he recently launched a scathing attack on the survivors of the Feb. 14 school shooting in Parkland, Fla. “The lies from these poor, mushy-brained children who have been fed lies and parrot the lies," he said. "They are actually committing spiritual suicide, because everything they recommend will cause more death and mayhem, guaranteed."
Tickets and further information regarding the tour are available at Nugent's website.
