Pop Evil To Join Judas Priest and Whitesnake On Tour

Gaining even more attention and more popularity (rightfully so), Pop Evil will be hitting the road this summer as the opening act for Judas Priest and Whitesnake. This could be the band that puts this tour over the top. Your cousin Ryo wasn’t going to attend this show, but with Pop Evil scheduled to open, I may just have to go after all.

Of course, if I do go, I’ll have to sit in the lawn. The tickets for this tour are on the high side. Prices range from $125 for the best seat, to $50 for a seat, to $26 for the lawn (plus all applicable rip off fees).

Pop Evil are a band really making a name for themselves. They are gaining a lot of attention from the big touring acts; they've opened for Theory of a Deadman, they’ve opened for Buckcherry, they’ve opened for Tesla, and now they’ll be doing a huge summer tour with Whitesnake and Judas Priest. Good for them, they deserve it. Their debut disc is stellar and I have high hopes for this band. They could be up there with Hinder and Airborne as one of the great new bands of the 21st Century.

This tour kicks off on Wednesday, July 1st and runs through the end of August. Before that, Pop Evil will be doing a lot of club dates in support of Lipstick on the Mirror. If you get the chance, go see these guys. They are high energy and an awesome live experience. If you’re not familiar with their work, go get a copy of Lipstick on the Mirror. It’s an excellent disc that any rock fan should own.
