Cleveland (July 28, 2008) - Beat the Dog Days of Summer and high gas prices and ride your Harley to the “Better Bolder Biker Bash” at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum for a FREE concert with the “Motor City Madman” himself, Ted Nugent, on Saturday August 16, 2008 from 6 p.m.-10 p.m. This event is sponsored by Miller Lite.
Cleveland’s Burnt River Band will take the stage at 7 p.m. and Ted Nugent will headline at 8:30 p.m. The event will take place rain or shine.
WNCX 98.5 FM will have a free drawing for a brand new VRSCD Night Rod motorcycle - valued at $15,000. There will be dedicated motorcycle parking adjacent to the Museum.
For nearly 40 years Ted Nugent has been a guitar wildman known for his unbridled live shows. Throughout his lengthy career, released more than 31 recordings, including “Cat Scratch Fever” and “Stranglehold,” and has sold more than 35 million albums. His talent on the six-string guitar and knack for composing arena rock songs has kept him in the rock and roll limelight for nearly four decades.
The Burnt River Band started out in Cleveland the late 70s like any other blues band playing in neighborhood bars, but grew to share the stage with groups including Lynyrd Skynyrd, Steppenwolf, The Doobie Brothers and David Crosby. Many of their concert performances are at motorcycle events - including Sturgis and the American Motorcycle Jamboree in upstate New York.
The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum’s Biker Barbeque will have hamburgers, hot dogs, brats, snacks, ice cream novelties and a selection of beverages including Miller Brewing Company products available for purchase.
