Ted Nugent

$30 to $35. 314-726-6161.

Ted Nugent's personality has always been bigger than his music. He's still a caricature of himself — what with his wild hair, fox-tail, loincloth and Native American headpiece — and he delivers passionate rants about favorite topics such as war, government and hunting. And though he fancies himself a right-wing warrior Republican, he comes across more as an extreme libertarian (sorry Nuge, but it's true). Live in concert, Uncle Ted still grills it and kills it, delivering a deliciously meaty show that's full of energy, oversize props and wailing guitar riffs. Ever the showman, this superstar knows to follow newer songs with classic dirty ditties such as "Wang Dang Sweet Poontang" and "Wango Tango." Be prepared: The Nuge will rock you, like, for real.
