Rocker Ted Nugent’s Shutup & Jam! Tour 2014 July 8

To coincide with the release of Ted Nugent’s first all-new studio album in seven years, the Motor City Madman announced he’s hitting the road for a national headlining tour that kicks off July 3 in Wichita Falls, TX. The tour makes a stop at the Valley’s historic Celebrity Theatre at 8 p.m. on Tuesday, July 8 with special guest Pistol Day Parade.

The multi-platinum guitar shredding icon returns with a new full-length album SHUTUP&JAM! due out Tuesday, July 8 on Frontiers Records. Nugent leads the pack of renowned musicians, handling guitar and vocal duties, alongside bassist Greg Smith, drummer Mick Brown and longtime musical cohort guitarist/vocalist Derek St. Holmes. Special guest Sammy Hagar brings his vocal power to “She’s Gone.” SHUTUP&JAM! is available now for pre-order at Amazon.

“Many gung ho music lovers are calling SHUTUP&JAM! the best songs and best music and highest energy rock out of my insanely wonderful musical American dream,” Nugent exclaims. “Sammy Hagar sings his balls off on ‘She’s Gone’ and Derek St. Holmes proves once again that the Motor City produces not just the greatest guitar grind master licks ever but one of the most powerful soul voices of all time on ‘Everything Matters!’ unleashing in early July.”
