Review: Ted Nugent, STYX, REO Speedwagon – Glens Falls, NY

tn_tour2013It’s All Aboard!!  The Midwest Rock N Roll Express has pulled into Glens Falls!

It was a triple header, Rock n’ Roll night as Ted Nugent, STYX and REO Speedwagon led this musical train straight into the Glens Falls Civic Center in downtown Glens Falls, NY. This trio has got to be one of the best “blast from the past” kind of tours, as the night is packed full of the hits from the 70s and 80s rock that we know all too well and love! Memories are tied to songs, and those songs performed on this tour bring your straight back to, what some fans say, another lifetime.

It was great to see such a packed arena on a Wednesday night and I just love to look around and see all the generations in the crowd, coming together for one purpose, to rocked out!

From “Cat Stratch Fever” to “Wang Dang Sweet Poontang”, Ted Nugent was “Just What The Doctor Ordered” to get the blood pumping! There is no doubt that Ted Nugent is a great musician and an amazing showman to boot!

Kicking off his set with “Wango Tango,” he had the arena’s attention from the start! He’s loud, American Proud and everything you can imagine his live performance to be. He even threw in his rendition mix of the Temptation’s song, “My Girl” leading into Chuck Berry’s “Johnny B Goode” which was really wild to hear.  Ted Nugent knows how to get a crowd to their feet, this show was no exception. He is always alot of fun to watch perform!

The tour is winding down, so if you’re in the path of this rock n roll train, be sure to stop in for a great night you will remember!! The tour ends in May, and all three bands will continue on separate tours. So be on the look out as you will not want to miss any of the bands on this bill!!!
