Sell-out crowd attends televised concert

Published August 15. 2011 05:02PM

A first occurred at Penn's Peak on Sunday.

A concert was televised live on international television.

The concert was by rocker Ted Nugent, who played before a sell-out crowd.

The event was broadcast live on HD Net, which was carried on the Blue Ridge Communications network for hi definition subscribers.

Nugent, who formed the band Damn Yankess in 1989 but has since embarked on a successful solo career, is also an avid outdoorsman and a proponent for the National Rifle Association.

Nugent has released more than 34 albums, and has sold a career total of 30 million records.

He was known throughout his early career in the 1970s for using Fender amps, a large part of his signature sound, and for playing the hollow-body Gibson Byrdland guitar. Gibson Guitar Corporation has since developed a model named for him.

His latest album was "Motor City Meyhem" in 2009.

Nugent has made several appearances at Penn's Peak, always before large crowds.

This is the first time for any artist that the event was broadcast internationally.

Coming up next at Penn's Peak is Rubix Kube - The Ultimate 80's Tribute Band, at 8 p.m. Friday.

Tickets for Friday's concert cost $17 in advance and $22 on the day of show.
