An answer to a question that Devo included in their press kit for Freedom of Choice: "Are the weird electronic effects that are so important to the Devo sound a permanent part of today’s pop music or just a passing fad? A: Yes and yes. Today’s noise is tomorrow’s hootenanny."
The Freedom of Choice tour was an ambitious one with dates in Japan, the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Italy, The Netherlands and Canada. Their stage set was relatively minimalist but also illuminated by industrial walls and towers with flashing lights. They also rocked the infamous red energy dome hats and Tyvek costumes, consisting of grey shirts and pants with long red strips of tape attached to them.
