Styx, REO Speedwagon and Don Felder to Play "United We Rock" Tour

by VVN Music

Styx and Don Felder are going on the road together again but this time with REO Speedwagon.

Three summers ago, the two acts toured with Foreigner in one of the highlights of the summer of 2014.  With the adding of REO, this, once again, has the potential to be one of the major tours of the summer.

Midwest rock heroes REO Speedwagon and Styx have a rich touring and recording history together. In 2000, the bands recorded a live album and DVD called Arch Allies: Live at Riverport at Riverport Amphitheatre in Missouri. In 2009, the bands embarked on the "Can't Stop Rockin'" Tour and marked the occasion with a single, Can't Stop Rockin', co-written by Styx's Tommy Shaw and REO Speedwagon's Kevin Cronin. 2012 and 2013, REO Speedwagon and Styx hit the road together with the wildly successful "The Midwest Rock 'n Roll Express" tour.

Most recently, in January, Styx and Don Felder shared the Las Vegas stage for an unforgettable five-night limited engagement, "Styx & Don Felder: Renegades In The Fast Lane," at The Venetian Theatre inside The Venetian Las Vegas. And, on the Rock Legends Cruise in February, Don Felder invited REO Speedwagon's Dave Amato up for an amazing performance of Hotel California.

Kevin Cronin of REO said "I called up Tommy Shaw last summer and we were both thinking the same thing: let's get the boys together, make some music, and have some fun. REO Speedwagon and Styx together is a head first plunge into the fountain of youth, an unstoppable force of nature. Add the amazing Don Felder to the mix and it's a thundering slam dunk!"
