Now that Fall is finally here we are starting to get the tour announcements for the upcoming year and so without any further adieu, here are the plans for the band Pop Evil who will be doing another headlining run with comedian Don Jamieson supporting.
The Press Release:
Pop Evil has announced a brand new batch of 24 U.S. headline dates for next year in the never-ending support of their self-titled LP, which was released earlier this year. Veteran comedian and former VH1 That Metal Show host Don Jamieson will serve as direct support. THEM EVILS and SAVAGE AFTER MIDNIGHT will open the tour on select dates.
VIP ticket packages and a Bandsintown pre-sale will be available starting Wednesday, October 17 via Pop Evil’s website. Public on sale will be available this Friday, October 19.
“We are excited to blend rock and comedy for this unique touring experience,” says frontman Leigh Kakaty. “We are big fans of Don, he will bring a lot of energy to the stage each night. We think this is going to be one of the most memorable tours to date with Don Jamison, Them Evils and Savage After Midnight.“
“Another great part of this tour is the opportunity for local bands to win our contest to be the opening band each night. Can’t wait to see everyone in 2019. “
Pop Evil is launching a contest which gives local bands a chance to win a slot on the bill. Bands in each city can submit an original cover of Pop Evil’s latest single, “Be Legendary” and be in the running. The contest begins in November – stay tuned on Pop Evil’s social media pages for more info.
This announcement comes on the heels of POP EVIL announcing a Canadian headline tour dates in Canada. Dates will kick off on November 17, 2018, in Toronto at Lee’s Place hitting both coasts before wrapping up in Saskatoon at the Coors Event Centre on December 3, 2018. New label-mates Royal Tusk will support. (#shamelessplug – We posted that news HERE several weeks ago).

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Though I’ve only managed to see PopEvil less than a handful of times over the recent years, I have to say that they really know how to put on a good show. With bands like this I end up judging the fans reaction to what is being put out there and believe me my friends, their ardent admirers go crazy from the minute they begin until it’s over. This tour doesn’t seem to be hitting my immediate region outside of the Starland Ballroom stop and I seldom get there myself. What about you readers? Are you planning on checking out this Pop Evil run? Chime in down below. We love to hear from you.
