Win FREE TIX to Ted Nugent @ the Upstate Concert Hall on Wednesday!

The Nuge.
Uncle Ted.
The Motor City Madman.

Whatever you call him, Ted Nugent is one of rock ‘n’ roll’s great characters.

I mean, who would have thought that the guy who led the Amboy Dukes through one of the psychedelic era’s most acid-laced anthems (“Journey to the Center of Your Mind”) would end up as a staunchly right-wing conservative?

From his reality TV series (“Surviving Nugent,” “SuperGroup”) to the books that he’s authored (“God, Guns & Rock and Roll,” “Ted, White and Blue: The Nugent Manifesto”), the ever-outspoken guitarslinger has remained true to his often controversial, always uncensored point of view.

Most importantly, Nugent continues to crank it up and rock in his trademark take-no-prisoners fashion.

On Wednesday night (July 11), Ted Nugent leads his band – including guitar hero Derek St. Holmes, bassist Greg Smith and drummer “Wild” Mick Brown – into the Upstate Concert Hall in Clifton Park for a stop on his current “Great White Buffalo” tour. Laura Wilde is slated to open the show at 8pm, and tix are $25 in advance; $27 at the door.

    Got you in a Stranglehold Baby!

  3. Oates77 says

    Most of his best were sung by St Holmes. Just What the Dr Ordered, Hey Baby, Storm Trooping, etc.

    If only Ted would keep his rants to Fox News and not the stage, I might attend. But the hypocritical political rants from a draft dodger become too much for me.

  4. Lisa Buck says

    What a great suprise this would be for me to take my boyfriend to. He loves Ted and has for years! Hope I can cross all my fingers and toes and win these tickets!

  5. ex-banian says

    Full of hate. Total hack of a musician. I hope you choke on him.

  6. George DeMers says

    We’re huge on the Nuge. Don’t hate upstate! A healthy dose of Nuge is needed to wash out the Phish smell.

  7. steve ward says

    Just what the doctor ordered!!!!!!!!!!!WANG DANG!!!!!!!

  8. JES says

    I detest the Nuge’s politics and bow-hunting stances . . . . but, dammit, the man put on one of the best shows I ever saw in the 1990s at the (then) Knick Arena, and I’m sure he’ll be even more incredible in the up-close-and-personal Upstate Park Western Lights . . .

    Don’t pick me to win (since I won’t drive from Iowa for it), but for those who might be deterred by his public persona . . . set it aside, since as a showman, he’s worth seeing . . .

    (And I agree with George above that Upstate Palate Cleansing is in order if Phish was there recently).

  9. Trisha says

    I’d love to see the nuge!

  10. Steve Del Signore says

    Ah, Nuge. I can ignore his rants mostly. As with any fanatic, their ultraviews only serve to alienate the majority of people from their message. I’ve seen him several times over the years beginning with a show at the Palace in May of 1976! That was the great Nugent band and it’s great to see Derek St Holmes back singing with him now! Hope there’s no unattended golf carts sitting around Clifton Park Wednesday night.

  11. Bob W. says

    Ol’ Ted is unquestionably a nut, but at least he is an entertaining/infuriating nut. And with Derek St. Holmes back in the fold, this show just got that much more interesting.

  12. Rick C says

    pick me pick me

  13. Stanley Johnson says

    I don’t want to go either, but I must say he put on quite a show at the Sedalia, Missouri Rock Festival in 1974, where he headlined over Lynyrd Skynrd and many others. He played with what I believe were several members of the Amboy Dukes and a guitar player named Rhino from Iron Butterfly. Check out their album “Marriage on the Rocks – Rock Bottom.” Rag on Phish if it makes you feel better, but they are hotter than ever.

  14. Tracey says

    Would LOVE to win these tix!
