Arena rock kings REO Speedwagon are bringing a set of Top 40 hits and cult favorites to Las Vegas for a retro concert this fall. The band, with such chart-toppers as "Keep On Loving You," "Take it on the Run," "Roll with the Changes" and "I Can't Fight This Feeling," was the definitive straight-ahead rock act of the '80s.
Founded in 1968 and originally comprised of students from the University of Illinois, the group was managed by Irving Azoff, who would later take the Eagles and Steely Dan to multi-platinum fame. After years of hard work and lineup changes, REO Speedwagon finally broke into the mainstream in 1976, when it brought back frontman Kevin Cronin, who had led the group from 1972-1973.
Cronin remains the face of the band, which has continued performing and touring throughout the last decade, propelled by a self-financed album, a Christmas album and a tour with Pat Benatar.
REO Speedwagon's recent tours have featured new songs and old favorites, attracting lifelong fans and young retro junkies alike.
