Ted Nugent fans will be able to have his 6,000th performance -- played last July 4 at the DTE Energy Music Theatre -- for posterity.

"Motor City Mayhem" will be released June 30, featuring the entire show including guest appearances by Mitch Ryder, original Nugent band singer Derek St. Holmes, drummer Johnny "Bee" Badanjek and Nugent's guitar teacher Joe Podorsek, who brought Nugent on stage for his first public performance in 1958 joined his former pupil at DTE for a rendition of Bill Doggett's "Honky Tonk." The DVD also includes Nugent's rendition of "The Star Spangled Banner" flanked by troops from the Selfridge Air National Guard as well as staples such as "Motor City Madhouse," "Free For All," "Dog Eat Dog," "Weekend Warrior," "Cat Scratch Fever" and "Stranglehold."

Nugent, who reunited with the Amboy Dukes for this year's Detroit Music Awards in April, is working on new material in Texas and, while still playing some select shows, is mostly spending time with family during his 60th birthday year. He does have a new reality/survival show, "Runnin' Wild From Ted Nugent," slated to premiere during August on CMT.
