The package allows you the exciting opportunity to see Steve and the band prepare for a show; along with the ability to ask Steve questions in an intimate group discussion.

Does the EVO package get me backstage?
NO. The backstage area is strictly for band and crew only.
Can Steve autograph my guitar, CD etc etc?
Steve is happy to autograph CDs, vinyl, books and guitars, however you are responsible for the items you bring to the venue. We are not responsible for any lost, stolen or damaged items. Some venues may not let you bring in large items such as guitars. Check with the venue first! You should only bring a couple of items AT MOST. DO NOT bring your entire collection with you.
Does the EVO Premium Experience package allow me access to the meet and greet after the show?
When will I receive the merchandise in the package?
You will receive the merchandise in the package on the day of the show.
Can I give Steve a copy of my demo CD?
No. While Steve is very supporting of upcoming artists, he cannot accept your demo CDs while he is on tour. It is too much for him to carry on the road, as by the end of most tours he ends up with hundreds of them. Keep them at home as they will only be lost or forgotten on the road.
Can I give Steve a gift?
Many fans like to present Steve with gifts while he is on tour. While Steve is honored and flattered, carrying gifts on tour can become a major problem, and can lead to a lot of extra baggage by the time the tour is over. So that we don’t become overloaded on the road, we would prefer if you did not bring gifts.
