Detroit’s Ted Nugent To Aid Boston Marathon Bomb Victims

Detroit’s own Ted Nugent, along with, Styx and REO Speedwagon are helping those affected by last week’s bomb blasts in Boston, as well as others across the country, through  Rock to the Rescue. At each stop on their “Midwest Rock n’ Roll Express” tour with, they are giving away a guitar signed by all three acts as part of a silent raffle. 75-percent of the proceeds will be donated to a local charity in Boston to help last week’s bomb victims, and the remaining 25-percent will be given to local charities in the respective tour market. The tour, which started last Thursday in North Dakota, is in Springfield, Massachusetts on Tuesday.

Spearheaded by Tommy Shaw’s daughter, Hannah Shaw, Rock to the Rescue is a non-profit organization whose mission is to build strong, healthy communities through the support of grassroots organizations across the country.

There are no Detroit dates as of yet for the “Midwest Rock n’ Roll Express tour.  However, Ted Nugent is scheduled to perform at DTE Energy Music Theater August 2nd along with special guests Tesla and Laura Wilde.
