Let me preface this with, I don’t care what your political affiliation or beliefs are, if your music kicks ass, then I will listen to it, I will see you perform live and I will take photos. With that being said, Ted Nugent took to the stage this past Friday night in Pompano and he tore it up like only Uncle Ted can do.
Getting his start in 1965, Ted has released 34 albums, sold over 30 million records, and he has played over 6,000+ live shows, and it doesn’t look like he is slowing down any time soon. From his solo work, to his time with Damn Yankees, Ted has been a part of the rock scene in one way or another for the better part of 5 plus decades.
He bought his guitar-driven rock to Pompano on his Sonic Baptizm tour and tore up the stage at the Amp.
Starting with his signature version of the Star-Spangled Banner, the crowd was on their feet, and they never sat down again. From his thundering riffs and rip-roaring fretwork, Ted doesn’t disappoint. His set list included fan favorites like “Wang Dang Sweet Poontang” & “Cat Scratch fever” as well as other hits, his set was patriotic and 150% pure Ted Nugent.
Opening the show were Georgia boys Jackyl, who gave the crowd a solid, southern hard rock set, which ended with singer Jesse James Dupree playing their hit ‘The Lumberjack’ and his signature chainsaw singing along. The show was everything you need and want in a concert. It was loud with the right amount of kick-ass thrown in. With Ted Nugent, you get exactly what you expect to, a great damn rock-n-roll show!
