The controversial rocker Ted Nugent has recently slammed the “liars and haters” in the wake of the cancelation of his concert in Birmingham, Alabama due to a backlash surrounding his controversial political views.
AL.com had reported that Ted Nugent’s concert in Birmingham, Alabama has been canceled due to a backlash surrounding his controversial political views.
The legendary 74-year-old rocker was scheduled to perform on July 18 at Avondale Brewing Co. But his appearance was scrapped on Thursday afternoon (May 4), one day before tickets were to go on sale via Ticketmaster.
The decision to call off the gig was apparently made in response to about 1,000 comments which were posted on Avondale Brewing’s Facebook page after the show was announced, as well as more than 150 comments on the venue’s Instagram page.
A Birmingham bar, Al’s On 7th, issued a statement earlier this week saying it would no longer support Avondale Brewing Company or Good People Brewing Company, Avondale’s parent company.

Nugent’s concert in Birmingham was supposed to be part of his 28-stop tour dubbed “Adios Mofo ’23”, which is being advertised as his farewell tour.
Nugent has said a number of times that that his political views — which the rocker himself has proudly called “radical” — are one of the main reasons he hasn’t been inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame.
It has been noted that the conservative rocker has been eligible for the honor as a solo artist since 2000. He has enjoyed a remarkably successful and eventful musical career over the past five decades, but his music is increasingly overshadowed by his controverisal political outbursts.
