Ted Nugent's press agent reports:

"Ted Nugent brought the 2008 Monsters of Rock in Spain to a halt after he performed a Native American rain dance donned in full-feathered headgear. The ritual came as Ted wrapped his set with his “Great White Buffalo” and the ensuing downpour destroyed all the production, staging and lighting, which ultimately forced the cancellation of the remainder of the annual music festival, including a performance from headliner Deep Purple; the July 11 Zaragoza, Spain show’s bill also featured Twisted Sister, Saxon, Thin Lizzy, Pretty Maids, Candlemass and Rage. Now back in the U.S. on his “Rolling Thunder 2008” tour--the Motor City Madman’s 50th trek--Ted is performing classics including “Stranglehold” and songs from the explosive Love Grenade, his 35th album released last fall (Eagle Rock Entertainment); he’s also touring in support of his new CD and DVD (Sweden Rocks). Next month, look for the rocker to make his feature film debut in Beer For My Horses, which stars Toby Keith and also features Rodney Carrington, Claire Forlani, Tom Skerritt and Willie Nelson. In addition, this fall “the Human Tornado” will release his new book (Ted, White & Blue: The Nugent Manifesto), comprising 10 chapters on how to fix America. What is Ted’s manifesto? "That logic, honesty, goodwill and decency will guide a person to a quality of life--and that if a wild guitar player like me can be an asset to self, family, community, country, mankind and the good earth, nobody has an excuse to be a liability,” says Ted. “Doing the right thing is ridiculously easy and always much more satisfying."
