TED NUGENT 7.27
Select few professionals are possessed of the skill, passion and sheer tenacity to break record after record in their chosen field. And fewer still can stake that claim in more than one arena.
To millions of music lovers, Ted Nugent has carved a permanent place in rock and roll history as the guitar-shredding showman, selling more than 40 million albums, performing more than 6,400 (!) high-octane concerts, and continuing to set attendance records at venues around the globe.
From the ground breaking Amboy Dukes’ hit “Journey to the Center of the Mind”, to classics like “Stranglehold” and “Cat Scratch Fever”, Damn Yankees chartbuster “High Enough,” and cult classic “Fred Bear”, Ted’s no-holds barred career spans five decades, and has been featured on A&E’s Biography and on VH1’s Behind the Music. Named Detroit’s greatest guitar player of all time by readers of MLive!, Nugent performed for 55,000 marines, sailors and families at Camp Pendleton’s Rockin’ the Corps, was honored to join fellow musician Toby Keith on a USO Tour of the Persian Gulf, and has donated in excess of 6000 concerts and backstage passes to individual troops stateside.
Opening for Ted Nugent will be a band called AXIS Five! AXIS Five is a band hailing from Virginia, presenting the very best in new original rock music with a live high-energy show. Each of the musically accomplished members of AXIS Five comes packed with decades of live performance experience, and thrives on getting the crowd up to a state of heart-pounding bliss.
