Ted Nugent has announced more dates for his “Adios Mofo ’23” final tour

In a new video message explaining why he was retiring from touring, Ted Nugent said: “This  ‘Adios Mofo’. This is my last tour. Now I’ll always play music. I’ve got new records I’m gonna make. I can’t wait to unleash some of these new songs. I’ve got an instrumental called ‘Butter Fingers’ that is just greasy. You can’t eat barbecue ever again adequately without the song ‘Butter Fingers’ playing loud next to your brisket.

“The point being is thank you, everybody, for an incredible musical dream,” he continued. “The musical dream will continue but I’m not going on tour anymore because hotels are jail. [Laughs] A hotel room is jail for me. My dogs won’t allow me to not spend a day with them, so [my dogs] will go on the road with me this year. But the logistics are just too complicated when you have dogs and grandkids and kids and so many other things.

“The point is the American Dream has a soundtrack, and with my unbelievable musicians for 65 years, I have created the most fun, titillating, centrally stimulating soundtrack in the history of the world.

“Like last year, in 2022, ‘Detroit Muscle’, this will be the greatest, most intense, tightest, most dynamic, outrageously fun tour of my life. But ‘Adios Mofo‘.”

When the “Adios Mofo ’23” tour was first announced last month, Ted Nugent said in a statement: “Performing my killer songs with this killer band for these killer music loving audiences every night is an indescribable joyous musical celebration beyond words. Every song has a life of its own and the spirit and energy of each night is off the charts stimulating on all human levels and beyond.

He added: “My amazing American Dream sure as hell ain’t over, and no way can I even see it from here! However, my fiery vaportrail of flamethrowing all American R&B and rock ‘n’ roll has been so much damn fun, I can hardly believe it. I will write The Book, but for now, it’s ‘Adios Mofo ’23’! Thank you thank you thank you all!”
