Wow this is great!
CMT looks good tonight.
I missed this. What happened?
Just searched for links to Toby Keith and yours came up. Do you know anything about Toby touring with Ted Nugent? I've got tickets for the Saturday show but am not a Nugent fan. It's only the second night of the tour--opened in OK City this week. Does Nugent open for Keith at 7:30? Any details anyone?
bookmark to check
Have you been able to check out the Toby Keith/Nugent concert? Concert is tomorrow night and I'm wondering if Nugent opens for Keith. If so, I'll pass until 9:00. Thanks in advance.
I would call the venue. I don't show him there unless his schedule has changed.
Fri 01/21/05 Omaha, NE Qwest Center Omaha
Sat 01/22/05 Moline, IL Mark Of The Quad Cities
Wed 01/26/05 Rockford, IL
Looking at your post again I'm not sure what city you are in.
I would definitely call the venue and ask them about Nugent.
Will do and thanks. We're currentlt experiencing blizzard conditions so it may be rescheduled.
I hope you make it.
Let us know how great it was!
He did Bob Seger's "Fire Down Below" as an encore in Tulsa....Ted & Toby Rocked the house that night and was the opening night for their tour together. Happy Inauguation Day!
Nugent didn't do an encore in Moline, IL. That was a surprise. Toby performed for over 90 minutes and yes, rocked the house!
Ted's encore in Tulsa was he came out at the end of Toby Keith's set to play "Star-Spangled Banner" then stayed for "Courtesy of the Red, White & Blue". Here's the complete setlist for the Tulsa Show (as posted on CMT message boards):

RE: Tulsa Concert Song Setlist
The flag-waving content of Nugent's six-song opening turn made Keith look restrained. In fact, the veteran rocker came out actually waving a flag, sporting a white beard and camo hat that made him look like a cross between a B-western sidekick and one of the guys from Molly Hatchet. Playing with bass and drums, Nugent ground out his fabled hard rock licks beneath a gigantic U.S. flag, integrating odes to the president, the troops, the police and the "American spirit." He even led the crowd in a manic pledge of allegiance. Nugent and the boys played a couple of his hits, "Stranglehold" and "Cat Scratch Fever." Two other songs, "Great White Buffalo" and "Fred Bear," spoke of his love of hunting and the outdoors. Apparently, so did a furry tail that he wore, apparently to suggest his kinship to the animals he kills and eats. His final number was "Kiss My Ass," in which he screamed the phrase over and over again above ear-numbing licks, each time appending the name of a different liberal or foreigner who had incurred his displeasure. Somewhere in there, a life-sized effigy of Saddam Hussein was hoisted about the stage, so that Nugent could put an arrow through its heart with a red, white and blue bow. "Kiss my ass! God bless America!" Nugent shouted, and then left. And looking at the empty stage after this assault on the senses was like staring into a smoking bomb crater.
