Phoenix, Ariz. - Since 2012 Scott Helmer’s concerts have helped raise more than $2 Million Dollars for good causes across America ranging from military veterans and their families, equine and pet rescues, food banks, non-profit theatres, suicide and crisis prevention, special needs children and adults, high schools and colleges, and more. Helmer’s “Never Lose Hope” Tour 2017 continues his mission of using music to make a difference. Beginning in April 2017 and running through December 2017, event organizers, venues and good causes can book Scott Helmer's “World’s Greatest One-Man Rock & Roll Show” to benefit their cause. 100% of the proceeds are theirs to keep and causes that raise at least $20,000 during their event may qualify for a fundraising 'bonus' ranging from $5,000 to $10,000, compliments of Helmer's corporate partners.
Helmer has opened for and toured with iconic acts like Heart, Eddie Money, Jeff Bridges, 3 Doors Down, Eric Burdon and the Animals, and more, and his newest live show consists of rock & roll and country hits, in addition to his own music. Helmer’s upbeat and energetic 2-hour performance finds him moving from acoustic to electric guitars, to piano, and even to the drums. Audiences of all ages are guaranteed to be entertained, on their feet, and singing and dancing in the aisles, all while helping support good causes within their communities.

On November 28 & 29, 2016, Helmer’s ‘Never Give Up' Tour included an attempt to break Hunter Hayes Guinness World Records title for ‘Most Live Concerts in 24 Hours (multiple cities).’ Helmer successfully completed 12 concerts across California and Arizona in the 24-hour time frame and is awaiting formal review of the evidence and issuance of the new record title from Guinness judges.
Why would someone devote their life to an initiative like this? In 2008 as the world economy was spiraling out of control, Scott Helmer sat alone in his car on a deserted mountain road in Northern Arizona with a gun in his mouth, ready to take his own life. After making a series of serious mistakes he ended losing everything including his family, all of his possessions, his career and most importantly his self-respect. In the seconds before pulling the trigger Helmer cried out to God for help and said, ‘I don’t want to do this. If you help me through this I won’t give up and will use all of this bad stuff to help others and to make a difference, so that no one else has to go through what I am going through right now." Helmer then put the gun down, decided to never give up, picked up his guitar and began to keep the promise he made that fateful day.
Helmer notes, "my primary mission going forward is to continue using my music to help support the good causes I believe in.” He adds, "I’m going to keep showing others that no matter how hopeless you feel and regardless of what mistakes you have made in the past, suicide is not the answer, giving up is not the answer and that you 'can' make a comeback." He continues, "I am living proof that you can use your mistakes to find your true purpose and make a difference in the lives of others."
