DEVO Announces HARDCORE Tour Dates 2014!

DEVO have announced 10 shows for Summer 2014!

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.

This early DEVO material was recently presented on their "Hardcore DEVO" re-issued vinyl & CD last year.

This is the first time in 30 years that some of these songs will be performed live!

---------------------------------------------------Old-Stock 2004 Blue Energy Domes Found!
Now Available at! 

Warehouse find!

These are VERY rare – The first version of DEVO’s blue Energy Dome hats. Manufactured 10 years ago to coincide with DEVO’s participation in Nike’s “Run Hit Wonder” 5/10k Race 2004 concert tour, which made stops in Los Angeles, NYC, Portland, and Chicago.

Nike manufactured custom designed DEVO stage suits which included jackets, pants, and Energy Domes…all blue to match the Nike’s color scheme for the tour. These Blue Energy Domes are made of very strong/thick blue plastic (and they are a little bit smaller than the Energy Domes that DEVO sells currently).

Get ‘em while you can! These will not be made again!
