Intensities in 10 Cities is the second live album by the American guitarist Ted Nugent, released in 1981 and consisting of ten songs recorded during the last ten dates of Nugent's 1980 tour. Nugent played 2 or 3 new songs every night on the tour, and told audiences he was recording them for possible inclusion in a new live album featuring all previously unreleased songs. None of the songs had appeared on any previous Ted Nugent album.[1] Nugent explained at the time that about twenty previously unreleased songs were played at the beginning of the tour, and at the end the best ten were recorded live rather than in the studio later, because they were well-honed from months of performances and had the extra spark of a live setting.[1] It was Ted Nugent's final album for Epic Records and the last album to feature drummer Cliff Davies.

The album was ranked at number 9 on Guitar World's list of the "Top 10 Live Albums."[4]
