Controversial rocker Ted Nugent
has officially confirmed he'll be making his 6,500th live performance this summer as a part of upcoming "Shutup & Jam!
" US tour.
Marking the milestone, Uncle Ted will release a new album, also titled "Shutup & Jam!
" later this year via Frontiers Records.
With 37 records under his belt, the Nuge has sold over 40 million albums over the past five decades, constantly touring with fury. Say what you want about old Uncle Ted and his rants, but these figures are impressive."Though we can all agree that music is the ultimate communication, killer rock 'n' roll is also the ultimate soul cleansing distraction from everyday life,"
Nugent stated via official website
. "I predict the most fun tour of our lives. Politics be damned! SHUTUP & JAM!"
The trek will kick off on July 3 in Wichita Falls with the lineup consisting of Nugent, Greg Smith
on bass guitar, Wild Mick Brown
on drums, and Derek St. Holmes
on vocals and rhythm guitar.
