Ted Nugent has decided against hanging up his guitar for good, revealing plans for new performances via his Instagram account.

After concluding his “Adios Mofo ’23” farewell tour last year, featuring Jason Hartless on drums and Johnny Schoen on bass in his latest lineup, Nugent is not ready to step away from the spotlight just yet.

Ted Announces Surprise Gigs

In his social media update, Nugent unveiled dates for an unexpected series of “SpeakEazy” concerts. He urged fans:

“Secure your spots now for a limited series of surprise SpeakEazy performances! Be there for the May 4th event at’ Blues, Brews & BBQ’ alongside Jared James Nichols & Wes Jeans – May 4, Saturday, 6:00 PM, 2024, at Heritage Hall, Ardmore, OK, USA.”

After his supposed final tour, Nugent spoke on SiriusXM’s Trunk Nation With Eddie Trunk, reflecting humorously on his retirement:

“My guitars are still creating magic. They’re practically having a party in my guitar sanctuary. I play daily. Here in Texas, I’ve got a band with Jon Kutz on drums and Johnny Big on bass and vocals. We’re constantly making music. We host Ted Nugent speakeasies, a mix of planned and impromptu rock n’ roll sessions around Texas.”

Nugent had previously mentioned on The Nightly Nuge his intentions to continue performing, albeit not on tour:

“We’ll keep the music alive with Ted Nugent Speakeasies, like the two-night sold-out event we had at Rattlesnake Roadhouse in Walnut Spring. It was a throwback to the raw, exploratory vibe of 1959 rock n’ roll, so expect more speakeasy events.”

He has scheduled five shows for April and May 2024, kicking off with the first Speakezy Rockout on April 13 and wrapping up on May 4.
