Contrary to popular belief, Journey's appearance in Tampa is not for the Republican National Convention. The $500 thousand dollar paycheck is real, but if they're not there for the RNC, what are they doing?

Journey had to flee Louisiana earlier this week thanks to Hurricane Isaac. They didn't totally leave the Gulf of Mexico area. They're in Tampa tonight and reports were running rampant that they were paid a half a million dollars to play the Republican National Convention and that's only part true.

They are lined up to play a charity gig for Citizens Helping Heroes. The gig is in conjunction the RNC, but it's not an officially sanctioned event, so the headlines that were splashed all over the place saying that Republican Presidential hopeful Mitt Romney paid them to play a campaign fundraiser were not true.
