Parkland massacre truther, NRA mouthpiece, and right-wing nut job Ted Nugent is taking his latest rally, er, tour on the road.

The camouflaged asshole who once told "piece of shit" Barack Obama and "worthless bitch" Hillary Clinton to "suck" his "machine gun" during a concert is bringing his "The Music Made Me Do It Again! Tour" to DTE Energy Music Theater on Aug. 31.

Announced Monday, the tour — which is in continued support of the Motor City MAGA man's latest record of the same name — comes just three months after it was reported by several fake news websites that "the Nuge" would hold a "Build The Wall" benefit concert (you know, to raise money for President Trump's controversial wall at the southern border). If Nugent has taught us anything over the years, though, it's that truth is stranger and far more fucked up than fiction (just take this interview from last year during which Nugent sympathizes with Brett Kavanaugh, refers to Islam as "voodoo," and claims to have zero regrets in referring to Senator Dianne Feinstein a "worthless whore.")

Tickets for his metro Detroit show ($25+) go on sale starting Friday, March 22 at 10 a.m. and can be purchased at

"We're not even beginning yet." — Ted Nugent on Donald Trump's 2016 presidential victory.
