Ted Nugent goes loud, gets political, as farewell tour hits Michigan

Date:

Ted Nugent performs during his Adios Mofo '23 Tour at Michigan Lottery Amphitheatre on Aug. 11, 2023, in Sterling Heights.

Decades after he first stepped onto a Detroit stage, Ted Nugent may have played his final concert here.

On a fittingly lightning-streaked Friday night in Sterling Heights, the 75-year-old Detroit native offered a dependably high-octane set of testosterone-fueled rock for a packed Michigan Lottery Amphitheatre.

And there was the obligatory political orating, including sharply worded attacks on President Joe Biden, Hillary Clinton and Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer. The stage included a pair of banners featuring silhouetted AR-15s and the inscription “I WILL NOT COMPLY.”

As always with a Nugent homecoming show, the evening came steeped in Michigan flavor, from the state flag that joined an American one onstage to the pre-show warmup music that featured songs by Bob Seger, Kid Rock, Mitch Ryder & the Detroit Wheels and more. The stage backdrop featured Nugent’s familiar logo alongside the phrase “Detroit Muscle.”
