When classic rockers StyxREO Speedwagon andTed Nugent come to Evansville, they’ll be donating part of the proceeds from the show to victims of the recent Boston Marathon bombings.

At every stop of the tour all three acts will sign a guitar for a silent raffle via Styx’ Rock to the Rescue organization. The organization’s goal is “to build strong, healthy communities through the support of grassroots organizations across the country.”

75% of the proceeds will be donated to a local charity in Boston to help victims of the recent explosions. The remaining 25% will go to local charities in each tour market.

“Like all Americans, we have watched the events in Boston and wondered what we could we do to help,” the members of Styx said in a press release. “We know the fans of all three bands will once again rise with us to help our friends in Boston.”
