Ted Nugent -- Clarkston, MI -- June 28th, 2012

We got there late & missed the first 20 min of REO Speedwagon. I was really impressed w/ their set, though. I'd so see 'em again. Here are the songs we saw:

Can't Fight This Feeling
Time For Me to Fly
Back on the Road Again
Roll With the Changes
Keep On Loving You
Ridin' the Storm Out


Styx was next. They've got some OK songs, but I'm just not a fan. "Blue Collar Man" & "Come Sail Away" were cool, though. I was just ready to see Ted Nugent.

The Motor City Madman headlined. I go see him every summer, and it's always one of the shows I look forward to the most. It's just good hard rock, and he's a great guitarist. It's also refreshing to see an entertainer who doesn't complain about how messed up the world is. Politics aside, he genuinely loves this country & loves his life. That's awesome! He didn't get as long of a set as usual b/c the 2 opening bands each played an hour, but the show was still great. He opened the set the right way w/ an awesome cover of "Kick Out the Jams" and then my favorite song of his, "Just What the Doctor Ordered." Other highlights were "Fred Bear" & "Stranglehold." Setlist:


Kick Out the Jams
Just What the Doctor Ordered
Wango Tango
Turn it up
Free For All
Stormtroopin
Wang Dang Sweet Poon Tang
Live it up
Hey Baby
Fred Bear
Cat Scratch Fever
Stranglehold

No Great White Buffalo??? Thought he always ended his shows with that, no matter what kind of show he was a part of.

Ah well. Glad ya had a good time. I'm thanking my lucky stars I get to see a solo show of his in a couple of weeks. 3rd time in 3 years. Ted's got one of my favorite live guitar tones ever.
