The U.S. Army has nixed Ted Nugent from the lineup at a Fort Knox concert scheduled for late June, after the outspoken rocker made controversial remarks about President Obama.
The decision comes after Nugent met with Secret Service officials Thursday — the Service said at the time the issue had been “resolved.”
But the Army went on to cancel Nugent’s performance set for June 23 at the Fort Knox annual summer concert.
“Co-headliners REO Speedwagon and Styx remain scheduled to perform,” a statement on the Fort Knox Facebook page said. “However, after learning of opening act Ted Nugent’s recent public comments about the president of the United States, Fort Knox leadership decided to cancel his performance on the installation.”
