Skip to comments.Texas Town Pays Ted Nugent $16K to Stay Away From 4th of July Concert

The town of Longview, Texas has reportedly paid conservative rocker Ted Nugent $16,000 to make sure he does not play at their annual 4th of July concert this summer. That figure represents half of the amount Nugent would have been guaranteed if the performance happened as scheduled.
Im sad the City of Longview has done this. I think it was done by a great deal of political correctness, political pressure, Gregg County Republican Party Chair Keith Rothra told KLTV. We have various performers who have made all kinds of statements that rattled peoples conscience and yet they are still slated as performers.
[M]eanwhile, Ted Nugent just made $16,000 for doing absolutely nothing.

I’ll gladly not attend for half that amount. I don’t want people to think of me as cheap but I can be had . . . for a price.
Only $16K? If they dislike him so much, they’d be willing to pay much more, methinks.
Well come on man, Ted supports the constitution, is for freedom and the individual, is an excellent role model for kids, teaches them the importance of confidence and being the best you can be, never drank nor smoked dope in his life, hates tyranny and other destroyers of freedom, kills for his own food rather than have someone do it for him, and he makes great music . I mean really, who would want that kind of guy around?
I thought Texas was in the USA, not Massachusetts or Albania. Maybe the Commies will get their wish and change the USA to USSA.
from the Miami Herald:
In January, Nugent called President Barack Obama a “subhuman mongrel.” The comments resurfaced when Nugent campaigned in February with Gary Abbott, who said he did not endorse such language.
I don't endorse that type of language either. It's insulting to subhuman mongrels.
Your link did NOT connect to Cat Scratch Fever but to some easy listening rap station.
” subhuman mongrel.”
translation: Communist illegal alien from Mombasa, Kenya.
Liberals, I’d assume.
Thanks, that is more like it.
He should show up unannounced and give a free concert two blocks away...watch that venue clear out...
Longview, XT (ex-Texas town), should try booking the Dixie Chicks if you can find’em... :)
If I were a business owner in Longview, maybe it’s time to start planning my re-location, bankruptcy, or early retirement. Maybe even a new city council in lieu of the above.
You forgot to finish the sentence with: “who got all sorts of equal opportunity money to attend big name schools he was not entitled to attend but made their EEOC money worth spending... to get more EO money from the leftist voting business’s.... and so on till he is president.”
I'll see your $10,000, and reduce it by $5,000 to stay out of Texas,PERIOD!
Cash, checks, or money orders accepted: send to 1313 Mufti Ave, Box FUBO, Lagos, Nigeria, 666-KFC.
Ted Nugent is using the language of the Alinsky Method. Someone tell Gary Abbott that the method works no matter who uses it.
Sounds like they would rather have the Dixie Chicks. I won’t be going there for anything.I wonder what Advanced Industries
that’s headquartered there thinks of it?
Actually, I quite like Texas - just not those parts of it that are anti-Ted.
Depends whether or not it conflicts with their shifts at Denny's.
When Nugent came to my community to perform at our county fair, it was the most foulmouthed performance I have ever heard, and it could be heard far beyond the fenced off stadium where he was "performing". The F-bombs were frequent, loud and clear, in addition to a number of other profane words and scatological terms. This at a fair meant for families with a great many children present throughout the area.
It was disgusting and for me, a Conservative, incredibly embarrassing. He's a grown man and should have known better. I hope he never comes back, as if they would even invite him.
I’m not fond of foul language myself, but foul language is not why he was cancelled. Presumably, if he hadn’t made his comments about Zer0 then Longview would have accepted any number of f-bombs.
“He should show up unannounced and give a free concert two blocks away...watch that venue clear out...”
I was going to suggest that Ted Nugent use the $16,000 to promote a 4th of July concert in Tyler, Texas, only about 40 miles from Longview, Texas.
Yeah, I think I know what you mean.
Ted goes with Joan.
Yeah-mon; aye even has friends and fambly there, but, Mon, I needs the cash.
Nevah said how long I would stay out, either; just 4th of July, 2014.
Donate it to the Texas Tea Party. That’s got to hurt!
Stupid *should* hurt.
Sounds like a couple Sammy Hagar concerts I went to in the 80’s. He acted like a 13-year-old that had just learned to curse. When he played, it was spot-on. I never saw any other performer do that from the stage.
Then again, I never went to rap “concerts”.
I am so old I remember when Calfronia had a guy named Reagan as Governor.
Like Ca Tejas will be blue soon.
Millions of illegal Catholics have a way of changing the politics of a place.
I’m angryvat Ted for insulting subhuman mongrels.
The first time I saw him in concert I was fourteen or so and he really shocked me with his mouth. That language was not used at home or in school at the time. Nowadays that’s how you give directions to someone that’s lost! Things have changed.
There are “Christian rockers” who don’t get scatological. I’m disappointed to hear Nugent is now more like the “old gent.”
I was born and raised in Michigan, and I remember when Ted had his own radio station in the Detroit area in the 90’s. I don’t recall him ever dropping “F” bombs, or any other profanity for that matter. What I do remember is that he had a serious axe to grind with clinton and reno, and the majority of his audience had the same view. This wreaks of a concern troll incursion.
It’s fair enough to want documentation. Though, to be fair, to call someone a subhuman mongrel apparently riles the left worse than calling him (in coarse words) a parent raping child of a female dog.
I have a feeling Longview is going to regret this.
It’s actually standard practice, 50 percent deposit upfront. It exists for this very purpose, to prevent willful cancellations. The story is written more dramatically, but they have really forfeited their deposit by cancelling a lefitimate booking.
LOL. The Dixie Chicks were like a fart in the wind, but Ted keeps rolling along...
“Easiest $16K Ted ever made. “.........Buy more guns Ted, the day is coming when we will all need more.
If Ted was really into entertaining, he would come up with a gig in the outlying area of Longview and draw some of the crowd away to HIS concert. Probably make even more $$$$$.
Don’t mess with Texas, Ted.
Everybody knows that the only reason to go to Longview is to visit the whores along both sides of Highway 80.
Perhaps, but that's not much of a factor in Longview. It's way up in the northeast corner of the state, along the I-20 corridor near the Louisiana border. The city's woes can probably be traced more to Shreveport than Laredo.
