Two more Ted Nugent concerts have been canceled by Native Americans. The Puyallup Tribe pulled the plug on his August 2nd and 3rd shows at its Emerald Queen Casino in Tacoma, Washington.

On Thursday in Liverpool, Paul McCartney will present the Honored Friend Award to Suzahn Fiering, also known as Nashville’s “Jazz Diva,” on behalf of his Liverpool Institute for the Performing Arts.
