Ted's gear did a great job of giving him a solid blues-rock sound.

Sound: Even at his age Ted could still scream like a mad-man and he sounded better than ever. The sound of the microphone could've been a little bit better though but it still sounded great. He used a Peavey amp and he came out playing his Gibson Byrdland. He played 3 Gibson Byrdlands; a black one, a natural one, and his signature one with pictures of arrows on the back of it. He also played the Gibson Stars and Stripes Les Paul and a PRS guitar (I forgot wich kind) with black stripes on it. His bass player played 2 Fender Percussion basses. Ted's gear did a great job of giving him a solid blues-rock sound. // 8

Perfomance: I've never really been a big fan of Ted Nugent and I really enjoyed the show, and his die-hard fans there loved it. There were people everywhere with there body's painted camo and lots of rebel flags. He had a Texas-themed stage with Cattle Skulls and he had machine guns, an American flag and a Missouri flag on the stage. In the back of the stage was a huge poster of him riding a middle-finger like a horse.Ted came out and said that everyone in the audience got a free machine gun and he gave his opinions about Hillary Clinton, wich everyone seemed to agree with. The best part of the show was after he played "Cat Scratch Fever" he came out wearing a Native-American (Indian) hat and played the "Star Spangled Banner" and shot his guitar with a flaming bow & arrow. // 10

Overall Impression: The concert took place at the Black River Coliseum in Poplar Bluff, Mo (USA) on June 6, 2007. Tickets costed $31 and it was well worth it. A band from Michigan opened for him. I can't remember what they were called but the sounded all right and did fairly good job opening for Ted. The best part of the show was when Ted shot his guitar with the flaming bow & arrow. I almost lost my mind when that happned. He gave his support to the troops and honored the soldiers who faught during D-day. There was this hilarious drunk guy in front of me who kept dancing and spilled a bunch of beer on me and my friend. One of the things I didn't like about the show was the security was a too tight, people would stand on top of some chairs they there and the security gaurds would constely make them get down. Also, the merchandise there was too expensive. A t*shirt cost $40. Overall it was a great show and I would defenitley see him again. // 9
