Ted needs help...

"Video quality...check...audio quality...check...right-wing mumbo jumbo...check...set list...good with the exception of Soul Man, which seemed completely out of place. However, I've been a Sweaty Teddy fan since the beginning and I've owned most of his records at one time or another. I saw him with the Damn Yankees and he was great. Sadly, I've always suspected that Ted should not front a band and this video proves it. He's best when teamed with someone who can motivate an audience. For example, Derek St. Holmes, who demonstrated that Ted has no stage presence by comparison. The songs that Holmes sings are miles above Ted and he effortlessly gets the audience going, whereas Ted just struggles. Notice how many times he says "Independence Day", "Freedom", and "Motor City" to get a cheap rise from the audience....at least 50 times throughout the show. This is acceptable two or three times but it is just embarrassing that he needs to try so hard. I wonder what his dialogue consists of when he's not playing in Detroit on July 4th. And what is it with referring to himself in the third person as Uncle Teddy at least a dozen times? That seemed a little creepy to me. It got to the point where I was cringing, seeing him pandering so badly. By the end, I couldn't take it anymore."
A MUST HAVE FOR YOUR COLLECTION

"If you are a Ted Nugent fan or just an appreciator of good hard fun Rock n Roll, this is a must have. This was filmed locally in Michigan at DTE (formerly to most of us "Pine Knob")last July 4th, 2008. It was a celebration of freedom and in your face guitar riffs and lyrics that you have come to know and love. What made it even more special was Derrick St.Holmes was on hand to sing Stranglehold, Hey Baby and more. That in itself was worth the money spent on the video. GET IT. YOU WILL LOVE IT."
Another great one!

"For about $10, you get two hours of Ted, with great footage, great camera work, great sound, and amazing musicians. As always, Ted is a show all by himself, but this DVD has Derek back (and in fine form), one song with Ted's guitar teacher from his childhood (how great is that?) and Johnny Badanjek sits in on drums for "Jenny Take A Ride". Great great stuff, and for this price, it's a steal. Not to mention the flaming arrow, at the end of the show.
GOOD DVD WITH FLAWS......

"A 2-hour long show by this mighty rock'n roll guitarrist. The Dokken rhythm section is as good as any other Uncle Ted's had played with before but a second guitarrist would have beefed up the sound a little. Lots of guests and all but there are some inconsistencies I want to point out but let me tell you that despite these, the show and performance are excellent.
Contrary to a lot of people, I do like the way he handles main vocals, even when it's a well known fact he does it because he wants all of the attention. But it's the way they're mixed in that I dislike, it's a constant yelling burying everything else, even the guitar, so I had to set the volume considerably lower than I'm used to, so I could cope with the shouting.The swow is shot in broad daylight but it doesn't detract from the fun. It's like an all-ages matineé.
Ted's vocals and guitar comes out a lot louder from one of the frontal speakers so I had to resort to setting the amp to mono; this did the trick making the sound even.
Problem with the setlist is that Ted almost always plays the same-old, same-old and rarely ventures into his more obscure material. News : he didn't on this dvd either. His in-between-songs banter is so pathetically right-winged, pro-war, pro-hunting it's laughable so I always find it highly amusing.....in a sad way.
All in all a good purchase just to watch this master of the fretboard in action."
