HARDCORE DEVO LIVE! A once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see Devo perform the legendary, experimental music the band created between 1974-1977 in Akron Ohio! The tour is dedicated to the memory of Robert Casale, (A.K.A. Bob 2), one of the 5 original Devo band members who is now touring the universe. VIP ticket admission will let guests meet the band and exclusively view / purchase rare, limited edition photo prints by noted photographers shot during the band's pre-label days. A portion of all proceeds from the tour will go to Bob Casale's family.
