TED NUGENT WRAPS UP SUMMER TOUR WITH SOLD OUT SHOW BENEFITING THE “SHOW OF SUPPORT MEMORIAL” FOR OUR TROOPS

TedNugentlive400 Multi-platinum guitar icon Ted Nugent rocked the house this past weekend (8/17) with a bombastic set in Midland, Texas, wrapping up his summer SHUTUP&JAM! Tour, named after his latest full-length album SHUTUP&JAM! on Frontiers Records.

Nugent was in top form for the sold-out gig, benefiting the Show of Support Memorial for our troops.

Show of Support was honored to have Ted and his band help us kick off our campaign to construct a memorial to honor those who have fought in this Global War on Terror and also to memorialize the four heroes we lost on 11-15-12,” stated show organizer Terry Johnson. “Ted brought a message of support for all who serve, and a call out to everyone in our sold out, packed audience to stand up for America.”

Throughout the summer, Nugent’s 35-date SHUTUP&JAM! tour has garnered glowing reviews for live performances at venues across the country and on July 19in Detroit, Nugent performed his 6,500th gig.

Nugent’s album, SHUTUP&JAM! marks the first all-new studio album from the Motor City Madman in seven years. The album features an epic lead vocal duet between Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee Sammy Hagar for the lead single She’s Gone, which peaked at #2 on “Classic Rock” radio chart.

SHUTUP&JAM! is available on Amazon and iTunes. In the U.S., fans can pick up a special edition of SHUTUP&JAM!–featuring the exclusive bonus track Johnny B. Goode Forever–only at Best Buy.

  1. Uh oh, Ted’s off tour now. All you defenseless animals, RUN FOR YOUR LIVES!

  2. Frank Rizzo says:

    I saw Ted this summer and he was awesome! Animals, they got rights, next to my mashed potatoes baby!

  3. propaganda Nugent Style. Notice they didn’t mention the dates cancelled due to his big mouth. Oh yea and his new album sucks. Free For All or Weekend Warrior….now THATS Nugent!!

  4. Even when Uncle Ted does something good, like for the troops, he still gets slammed for it. Wonder who’s the most hated man in Rock ‘N’ Roll today, Ted Nugent, or Gene Simmons, for different reasons of course, I’d say it’s neck & neck! Well, everything else aside, I still love their music, most of it! :)

    • BTW, I know at least a dozen people in their 40’s, who absolutely love Ted Nugent’s music, 40’s, not 60’s! “Shut Up & Jam” not included, even I’ll pass on that one. ;)

  5. Can we make sure?

    I heard it was at a Waffle House with 8 drunk over – 60 somethings.

  6. Midland…..the water there is so jacked with additives and process it tastes like s. Ted’s latest sucks but he’s better than ever live. Waffle House? 69 year old retired truckers who live in trailers define that chain……maybe Weekend Warrior on cassette in the rusted ’84 F-150.

  7. Ted’s just fantastic. Saw the Portland show. Excellent from start to finish!! Ted’s guitar slinging is better than ever!!

  8. Gene and Ted are definitely competing for most hated. Think its neck and neck so far.Love
    to throw the two of em in a room together and see the fireworks!
    Seriously Ted, how about less politics and more music? Stick to what you’re good at.
    Gene? He’s good at nothing but being a d. And man oh man does he stick to that!!!

  9. I hate to have the karma Ted Nugent wrath come down upon me for not knowing who he is talking about, but who are the 4 heroes he is referring to being lost on 11/15/12? I thought for sure it was Benghazi because right wingers can’t shut up about Benghazi but that happened on Sept. 11, 2012. I appreciate any info. Dana?????

  10. Ted does so much fantastic charity work. His work with the troops is unrivalled. But I agree with what Doug R said. Ted can’t seem to do anything right in the eyes of the public. Part of that, actually a lot of that, is Ted’s fault. I hope he realizes that. He’s radical politically and I don’t agree with a lot of what he preaches. But the fact remains that deep down he has a big heart. He does, however, have a tendency to stick his foot in his mouth and maybe he needs to finally accept that flaw and do something to correct it. Musically speaking, Ted is a legend and deserves to be in the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame. If saying that pisses anyone off, oh well, it’s the truth.

  11. I see Ted’s all for supporting the troops now that he’s too old to be drafted…….That being said,good job,as anything to help our Armed Forces is appreciated.

  12. Uh…..I’m 56 years old and fan of all hard rock……liked Ted back in the day as well as today…….if you don’t like his new CD, then you don’t like rock…..not every record is going be Weekend Warriors or Free for All…. Give the guy a break…..it’s typical Ted. I didn’t say it was my favorite or the best rock out there. But his summershows were great in Ft Lauderdale and Orlando House of Blues. Loud for sure…but excellent sound and live show……..don’t be so harsh…….Ted will always be Ted….either you like him and his music…..or you don’t….if not, build a bridge and get over it and move on !

  13. Why all the hate for the food at Waffle House?!? You can’t beat it. Bruce Dickinson founded Waffle House!!
