First stop: St. Jude
Pop Evil kicked off their “Rock ‘N Roll Now Tour: Right Now.” in January 2017 with an exclusive concert for the kids of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis, Tennessee.
The band was inspired by St. Jude during their first visit to the hospital in September of 2016 and wanted to come back and perform their music for the kids.

Families are free to focus on their child
Families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food — because all a family should worry about is helping their child live.
“We’re here to give (the kids) a release through rock and roll.”
