    It’s lights out on Ted Nugent’s scheduled performance at an Army base in Kentucky.

    Commanders at Fort Knox have decided against allowing the “Motor City Madman” to take the stage at the base in June, the latest fallout over Nugent’s comments that he would be “dead or in jail” if President Barack Obama were re-elected.

    “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,” according to an announcement posted Saturday on the base’s Facebook page.

    The concert at the base is part of the “Midwest Rock n’ Roll Express” tour featuring co-headliners Nugent, REO Speedwagon and Styx.

    “Army Entertainment and the Fort Knox Directorate of Family and Morale, Welfare and Recreation remain committed to carrying out the June 23 concert, and the possibility exists that a replacement will be selected,” the announcement said.

    It was not immediately clear whether Styx or REO Speedwagon planned to carry on with their scheduled performance.

    Nugent and Fort Knox public affairs officials did not immediately respond to a CNN request for comment.
