Avondale Brewing Co. Cancels Ted Nugent Concert in Alabama
Due to a social media backlash, Ted Nugent’s Birmingham show has been postponed. On July 18, Nugent, a 74-year-old political provocateur and veteran of hard rock, was scheduled to perform at Avondale Brewing Co. Concertgoers were extremely upset and disappointed this week due to his attendance here, which was announced on Monday by promoter Red Mountain Entertainment.
These feelings were shared on the venue’s Facebook and Instagram pages. After the show was advertised, almost 1,000 comments were made on the Avondale Brewing Facebook page, most of which were vehemently critical. Following suit, more than 150 comments were made on the venue’s Instagram page.
Detractors claimed they would stop supporting Avondale Brewing Co. if Nugent played there in the future due to their objection to the rocker’s extreme right-wing political ideas, which he proudly called “radical.” They denounced the musician as a homophobe, a transphobe, a sexist, a bigot, and other things.
On Avondale Brewing’s Instagram page, commenter @86composure wrote, “Lose this show or lose my business,” and many other users agreed. David Symonds posted on Facebook, “I will never spend another dollar in your establishment. It’s disgusting that you would book such garbage. Try harder.
“Oh, excellent. Just ideal,” remarked Lynne Hall. “Alabama, you never let the right-wing nut cases down! I am done with you, Avondale Brewery. Try harder! It is a shame to welcome this transphobic person into our multicultural neighborhood, declared Tandy D. Hayes.

Jim Anderson said, “Disgusting!” The phrase “No more Avondale for me.”This is incredibly disappointing,” Susan Crow said. “You give Ted Nugent a forum to spread misinformation and bigotry. You are to blame. One day before tickets were to go on sale via Ticketmaster, Nugent’s concert was postponed, according to an announcement by Avondale Brewing Co. on Thursday afternoon.
“We have heard the concerns of the Avondale community, which is so important to us, and in conjunction with our partners, have taken the necessary steps to cancel the Ted Nugent concert scheduled for July 18,” the venue wrote in a post on Instagram Stories.
The Avondale Brewing website no longer features Nugent’s concert, and by 5 p.m. on Thursday, the Ticketmaster listing had vanished. Comments and postings from the venue’s social media profiles have also been removed. The performance in this city was a stop on “Adios MOFO ’23: The Final Tour,” which Nugent called his final concert tour.
Nugent called himself a “political firestorm” and said in a video announcing his farewell tour for 2023 that “my music is radical; my attitude is radical; my middle finger is radical; my guitar tone is radical.” Longtime hunter and outdoor enthusiast Nugent is a vocal supporter of the freedom to bear arms. He is also well-known for being a genuine conservative and fan of the late President Donald Trump; he is one of the few musicians to endorse Trump openly after his presidential campaign.

Nugent strongly views topics like the Black Lives Matter movement, gender-affirming healthcare, and the coronavirus pandemic. The rocker said he tested positive for COVID in 2021 after denying the existence of the virus and refusing to receive the vaccine. “I thought I was dying,” Nugent remarked.
President Joe Biden and his administration are fiercely despised by Nugent, who calls him a “soulless zombie” and likens him to Adolf Hitler. He has a combined following of 3.7 million people, 660,000 people, and 474,000 on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, respectively. Additionally, Nugent has a YouTube account with around 40,000 followers.
