Ted Nugent scheduled for Berglund Performing Arts Theatre July 17 | Cut ‘n’ Scratch

He’s not just an NRA board member who thinks that at least half of the voting population should be shot on sight. No, Ted Nugent is also a guitar player who used to be better known for singing songs like “Cat Scratch Fever” and “Wang Dang Sweet Poontang.”

Nugent, who recently made news by telling a radio show host that Parkland, Florida, high school shooting survivors who have since advocated for gun control “have no soul” (hear audio, read story), will play Berglund Performing Arts Theatre on July 17. Tickets are $69.50, $49.50 and $39.50 and go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday at the Berglund Center box office (avoid pesky purchase fees), hometownbanktix.com or 877-482-8496.

In an interview with Alex Jones, which you can stream on youtube, he said “just know that evil, dishonesty and scam artists have always been around, and that right now, they are liberal, they are Democrat, they are RINO [an acronym for Republicans in name only], they’re Hollywood, they’re fake news, they’re media, they’re academia, and they’re half of our government, at least. So come to that realization. There are rabid coyotes running around. You don’t wait till you see one to go get your gun. Keep your gun handy, and every time you see one, you shoot one.”
