Ted Nugent Joins Kid Rock On Stage For ‘Cat Scratch Fever’
Ted Nugent was a special on-stage guest last weekend as Kid Rock began a series of 10 shows in Detroit. Click through to see some great photos from the DTE Energy Music Theatre; Nugent appeared on both Friday and Saturday nights (Aug. 7-8).
“Killer rock 'n' roll is wonderful wherever you celebrate it, but when the Kid Rock and 'Uncle Ted Motor City' planets align, the outrage factor is off the charts.” Nugent said, in a released statement. “Kid Rock and his amazing band continue the uniquely volatile tradition of high energy soul music that Detroiters created and carry on with pure animal vigor. Good Lord almighty, did we have a great time.”
They tore through Nugent's "Cat Scratch Fever," to the delight of the sold-out crowd. Kid Rock's set also included favorites like "First Kiss," "Mother F–er Like Me," "Cowboy" and "Born Free." His touring partner for these shows is Foreigner, who appeared on Saturday night – as is their new tradition – with a local youth choir. A group from the Detroit School of Rock and Pop joined them for a performance of "I Want to Know What Love is."
Nugent is no stranger to the DTE Energy Music Theatre, formerly known as the Pine Knob Music Theatre. In fact, he celebrated his 6,500th live performance at the same venue on July 19, 2014. Kid Rock's Detroit dates with Foreigner, part of the larger "Kid Rock's First Kiss: Cheap Date Tour," continue through Aug. 22.
