    Earlier this month, I caught Ted Nugent’s 2019 The Music Made Me Do It Again Tour in Lynn, MA. Honestly, I never had listened to Nugent much over the years, but I had interviewed his drummer, Jason Hartless, and was offered to accompany a dear friend who had an extra ticket. Needless to say, I enjoyed the show immensely and was glad I said "Yes" to the ticket. 

    The crowd at The Lynn Memorial Auditorium was charactful, to put it nicely, and I felt young at an age creeping toward 50! The stage had a backdrop of a charactured Ted with his middle finger up riding on a huge hand also with a big middle finger up. That alone gave me the feeling that I was going to really enjoy this show. There was much to look at onstage before the band even graced it. I was slightly disappointed to see a drum shield, as I was close to the front, but more stage left, so it created a slight visual barrier. Then again, most people were there to see Nugent himself. 

    Untraditionally and much to my surprise, the set started with the classic hit off his self-titled 1975 album “Stranglehold.” The set included songs even I was familiar with such as “Cat Scratch Fever” off his third studio album by the same name, and a surprise song off the B side of the same album, “A Thousand Knives.” (The complete set list and photos from this show are below.) 

    Nugent is known for his political stances, but he kept his opinions to a minimum onstage and spoke more about his various guitars he played and telling the crowd which ones “really liked us.” Along with his masterful guitar playing (which I was amazed by) and singing, Nugent was joined on stage by bassist Greg Smith and 24 year old drummer Jason Hartless. (My seperate in depth interview with Jason can be read HERE.) “Uncle Ted” through in some humor with quick guitar changes and continued to blow through the set. Concluding the energetic frenzy, the band played “Great White Buffalo” and Nugent’s version of the “Star Spangled Banner.” 

    The crowd was wild and inebriated, for the most part. My biggest laugh of the night was seeing a guy in front of me stagger across the aisle and face plant on a row of seats a few rows up and across. Thankfully the crowd was standing at that point. I also ended up with a guitar pick from the bassist, a set list, a t-shirt, and a special trip backstage to meet Jason! 

    Nugent, said at one point during his set, “We’re the only ones who do it like this anymore!” and I couldn’t help but agree with the 70 year old who just rocked Massachusetts. The tour concluded this past Labor Day weekend but I’m sure there will be another. Nugent shows no signs of slowing down. If you didn’t catch this tour in a city near you, plan to be at the next one!


    (A special thank you to Shauna from O'Donnell Media for making this night memorable with a trip backstage!)
