Pro-gun Rocker Ted Nugent Turns Away Firearms From His Roanoke Show
Famous rocker Ted Nugent performed in Roanoke on Tuesday night despite protests in the weeks leading up to the show. Nugent is a gun rights supporter and encourages open carry, but his fans were told at the last minute that they were not allowed to bring their guns inside the Berglund Performing Arts Theater.
It was Ted Nugent’s management that made the decision to not allow guns into the show. The Berglund Center said because it is city owned, it can’t keep guns out unless the performers are the ones who request it, and that it was actually in Nugent’s contract all along, but was in a sub-contract between Nugent and his promoter that wasn’t shared with Berglund Center management until the last minute.
