99.9 The Hawk Welcomes Ted Nugent to the Santander Performing Arts Center August 23rd

 Select few professionals are possessed of the skill, passion and sheer tenacity to break record after record in their chosen field.  And fewer still can stake that claim in more than one arena.

To millions of music lovers, Ted Nugent has carved a permanent place in rock and roll history as the guitar-shredding showman, selling more than 40 million albums, performing more than 6,400 (!) high-octane concerts, and continuing to set attendance records at venues around the globe.

From the ground breaking Amboy Dukes’ hit “Journey to the Center of the Mind”, to classics like “Stranglehold” and “Cat Scratch Fever”, Damn Yankees chartbuster “High Enough,” and cult classic “Fred Bear”, Ted’s no-holds barred career spans five decades, and has been featured on A&E’s Biography and on VH1’s Behind the Music. Named Detroit’s greatest guitar player of all time by readers of MLive!, Nugent performed for 55,000 marines, sailors and families at Camp Pendleton’s Rockin’ the Corps, was honored to join fellow musician Toby Keith on a USO Tour of the Persian Gulf, and has donated in excess of 6000 concerts and backstage passes to individual troops stateside.

To millions of citizens, Nugent is the nation’s most outspoken proponent of our first and second Amendment rights, conducting thousands of pro-gun, pro-freedom, pro-America interviews in major media worldwide.  He has served continuously on the Board of Directors of the NRA since his initial election in 1995, where he consistently sets records for amassing the highest number of votes received by an individual board member.
