REO Speedwagon, Loverboy, And Styx Tour Ready to kicks off tonight

We know that, Over the course of two decades, Styx and REO Speedwagon have toured extensively together. Their collaboration is not the first time they’ve done work together; first in 2000 and then again in 2009, they put out a successful song and a live album called “Arch Allies: Live In Riverport.”

People are apparently pleased to see the pair, and they continue their cute relationship through out, and the fans seem to disagree with those who don’t appreciate the pairing. Tickets for this list event with Loverboy go on sale. The night will feature 40 dates, ending with a September 18 show in Bangor, Maine.

The relationship between REO Speedwagon and Styx came about right when the influence of veteran rock bands was tapering off.“We needed to find a better way to get people out of their houses,” Doughty said. “So we just started doing this thing where we put three headlining bands on the same show so that people would come out of their houses.”

Kevin Cronin, frontman of REO Speedwagon, says the pairing with Styx has created a “win-win” situation. After they were introduced by their wives at a charity show, both artists appeared on the same tour and eventually became friends.

Kevin states, “Not only had we never toured together – we’d never done a show together; and we’ve played with everyone through our careers. We booked a show in Duluth and Minn., back in 2000, and it was just unbelievable!

Even though the latest trends are typically widely accepted, classic rock fans are a resilient bunch. They greeted Styx and REO Speedwagon with a packed pavilion and lawn while they performed at Blossom Music Center in Cuyahoga Falls.

The band also paid tribute to keyboardist Neal Doughty. Cronin reached back for “Like You Do” from their first album in  1972. Also we thanked him for being the only person alive who has been on stage for every single REO show in their 50-plus year history.
