Ted Nugent’s The Music Made Me Do It Again Tour
July 28, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm MST
Legendary rocker Ted Nugent returns to the intimate confines of Celebrity Theatre with his The Music Made Me Do It Again Tour beginning at 7 p.m. on Sunday, July 28th. Tickets go on sale this Friday, March 22nd at celebritytheatre.com.
Ted Nugent has carved a permanent place in rock & roll history as the ultimate guitar-shredding showman, selling more than 40 million albums, performing over 6,500 high-octane live shows, and continuing to set attendance records at venues around the globe. The multi-platinum guitar icon is announcing dates now for his 2019 tour in support of his latest album The Music Made Me Do It released in November 2018.
Nugent started “beating on his first guitar around the age of five.” Strongly influenced by Chuck Berry and Bo Diddly, he knew he wanted to pursue that type of sound and attitude. Early bands, The Royal Highboys and The Lourds, paved the way for the Amboy Dukes and their psychedelic Journey to the Center of the Mind kicking young Ted’s career into hyper drive. The axe maniac soon broke out as a solo artist, signing with Epic Records, where the guitarist’s prodigious talent, ear-shattering volume and over-the-top stage antics quickly earned him the moniker of Motor City Madman. Cranking out hits like “Cat Scratch Fever,” “Wango Tango,” “Free for All” and the iconic “Stranglehold,” Nugent garnered international acclaim and truly hit his stride. Nugent’s no-holds-barred career now spans six decades of multi-platinum hits. The ultimate road warrior continues to tour and record at breakneck pace. Nugent and his inimitable sound have been featured on VH1’s Behind the Music and A & E’s Biography. Nugent was named Detroit’s Greatest Guitar Player of All Time by readers of MLive.
Nugent is also one of the nation’s most outspoken far right activists. His pro-gun, pro-hunting, anti-drink, and anti-drug lifestyle has made him the anti-rock star rock star. Opinionated, unapologetic, and always quotable, Nugent has said, “I have militantly defended my quality of life, and I would never compromise it in the name of hipness or acceptability of my so-called peers.”
Politics aside, at 70 years of age, there’s no denying he puts on an amazing rock show. A Ted Nugent concert is not just a performance—it’s a fire-breathing celebration!
