Tribe cancels Ted Nugent concert

WORLEY, Idaho (AP) - The Coeur d'Alene Indian tribe has canceled an Aug. 4 concert by Ted Nugent at its casino near Worley.

The tribe on Monday said the cancellation was because of the rocker's "racist and hate-filled remarks."

The tribe says it booked Nugent without realizing he espoused "racist attitudes and views." The tribe did not detail which of Nugent's specific views it opposes.

Officials for Nugent's music management company were out of the office on Monday and not available for comment.

Nugent in the past has referred to President Barack Obama as a "subhuman mongrel."
