5,997, 5,998, 5,999...and 6,000.

Get ready America, for the historic 6000th concert of TED NUGENT’s career: a massive Friday, July 4 blowout at the outdoor DTE Energy Amphitheater in his hometown of Detroit, Michigan. It’s a highlight of the Summer of Ted that includes his new CD, DVD, book and film.

“It is guaranteed to be the most emotional, sensual, grind fest of what you’ve witnessed on the ‘Rolling Thunder Tour’ so far--the highest level of energy from anybody, anywhere, anytime,” says rock’s legendary guitar frontman and virtuoso, currently on his 50th tour that will take him through September 27.

“I was born and raised in Detroit in the shadow of the mighty Funk Brothers and I was taught the ropes of HOWLIN’ WOLF, MUDDY WATERS, MOSE ALLISON, JOHN LEE HOOKER, BO DIDDLEY, CHUCK BERRY BY MITCH RYDER AND THE DETROIT WHEELS. I started playing back there under the guidance of Joe Podorsek, my guitar teacher from the Capitol School of Music on Grand River Avenue, in 1957. My first performance was at the Michigan State Fairgrounds in the summer of 1958 with Joe Podorsek and the Capitol School of Music Revue. I don’t remember such a level of fear in all my life, as I wasn’t quite 10 years old. And to return on Independence Day is rather demonstrative of my American dream firestorm for almost 60 years. The feeling will be indescribable. And to have Greg Smith on bass and Mick Brown on drums,” adds Uncle Ted, “will once again prove that God loves me more than he loves you because he keeps sending me these unbelievable world-class virtuosos to propel and throttle.”

Continues Ted: “Michiganiacs demand maximum excellence—they are the ultimate demanding and discerning audience in the world. I have a connection with those music lovers that is personified in the borders of Michigan, and this show is going to be a mountain top that most musicians can only fantasize about.”

The incomparable guitar genius and fire-breathing intensity of Ted Nugent have carved him a permanent place among the legends of rock. The guitarist's prodigious talents, ear-shattering volume and over-the-top onstage antics quickly earned Young Ted the moniker of Motor City Madman along with international acclaim.

Recognized as the world's leading guitar showman, Nugent's no-holds-barred career spans five decades of multi-platinum sales exceeding 35 million albums. From the ground breaking Amboy Dukes' "Journey to the Center of the Mind," to classics like "Stranglehold" and "Cat Scratch Fever," Damn Yankees chartbusters like "High Enough," cult classic "Fred Bear," and his most recent studio album—and 35th overall--Love Grenade, Ted Nugent's rapid-fire sonic assaults continue to sell out venues around the globe.

The freedom loving Human Tornado (a moniker recently coined by Texas Governor Rick Perry) also recently released the live CD and companion DVD Sweden Rocks via Eagle Rock Entertainment. His latest book--comprising 10 chapters on how to fix America--is titled Ted, White & Blue: The Nugent Manifesto and is due in August via Regnery Publishing. Ted will also make his feature film debut this summer in the film Beer For My Horses, which stars Toby Keith and also features Rodney Carrington, Claire Forlani, Tom Skerritt and Willie Nelson. The film will be released August 8th in movie theatres in selected cities.
