BLOOMINGTON — The concert bill continues to grow for next week’s Rock to the Rescue fundraising event at the U.S. Cellular Coliseum.
Veteran Detroit rocker Ted Nugent, aka the Motor City Madman, is the latest addition, joining the list led by REO Speedwagon and Styx.
The news of Nugent's participation comes fast on the heels of five more additions on Monday — comedian Larry the Cable Guy, singer Richard Marx and a trio of bands, Survivor, Head East and B-N’s own Brushville.
The concert, which starts at 7 p.m. Dec. 4, is a fundraiser for victims of the Nov. 17 storms and tornadoes that ravaged Washington and other areas.
Tickets are $28 to $58, and still available via the Coliseum box office and Ticketmaster.
Nugent is no stranger to either the Coliseum or the REO/Styx camp.
The famously outspoken rocker headlined a Coliseum show in 2007 then returned to the area two years ago for a date at Pontiac’s short-lived Crystal Palace.
Nugent has been allied with REO and Styx the past two summers as part of the Midwest Rock ’n Roll Express Tour.
He also performed with the band as part of the Rock to the Rescue concert held in the aftermath of the Boston Marathon bombings earlier this year.
