Multiplatinum guitar icon TED NUGENT has returned this week with a new live 2 CD + DVD set, ULTRALIVE BALLISTICROCK, out now on Frontiers Records. The electrifying live footage was captured and recorded by 7 cameras in 5.1 audio mix on the “I Still Believe Tour” at Penn’s Peak in Jim Thorpe, PA on August 14, 2011 and features NUGENT’s arsenal of classic rock hits including “Stranglehold,” “Cat Scratch Fever,” “Wango Tango,” and many more (full track list below). The lineup on the CD/DVD consists of the legendary-and-still-raging NUGENT on guitar and vocals, Derek St. Holmes (rhythm guitarist and the voice on “Stranglehold”) on guitar and vocals, Greg Smith (Rainbow) on bass and Mick Brown (Dokken) on drums. The collection is available in three formats–2 CD+DVD deluxe edition digipak, DVD and Blu-Ray.
