TACOMA, Wash. -- Emerald Queen Casino will cancel two Ted Nugent concerts that were scheduled August 2 and 3, citing racist remarks made by the singer.
Puyallup Tribe officials said they also received threats from community members who demanded the casino cancel his shows.
The Washington tribe's action comes days after the Coeur d'Alene Tribe cancelled Nugent's August 4 shows at its Idaho casino because of the rocker's "racist and hate-filled remarks."
The Idaho tribe said Monday it booked Nugent without realizing he espoused "racist attitudes and views." The tribe did not detail which of Nugent's specific views it opposes.

POSTED:   07/24/2014 07:19:33 PM PDT
SALINAS >> Assemblyman Luis Alejo (D-Salinas) strongly denied an interpretation Thursday of a bill he co-authored.
Several Native American groups, who are not recognized by the federal government, have criticized AB 52 as cutting them out of the California Environmental Quality Act.
Alejo said that interpretation is incorrect and would not affect their ability to work with developers.
"Native American issues are very important to me," he said.
The legislation is designed to give recognized tribes more power over projects.
Yet it would also change the CEQA definition of a "Native American tribe" to a "federally" recognized tribe.
