VANCOUVER — Sorry to break it to you Ted Nugent fans. The rocker won’t play a show at the Clark County Fair this summer.
Did a contractual stranglehold kill plans to have him perform? Fair contracts say performers can’t play other gigs with in a certain distance and time of their fair concert. Nugent has two shows in Tacoma two days before the fair. The fair manager says he never would have booked Ted Nugent if he knew about those other shows.
Nugent is known as a gun rights guy and a petition has been floating around urging the fair to drop him from their line -up.
The fair manager says its contractual, but The Columbian reports another band Night Ranger will play Albany and then the fair the next day and those two places are closer than the fair and Tacoma. It got no response from the fair when it pointed that out.
