REO Speedwagon To Perform At Kirby Center

September 25, 2018

Rock band REO Speedwagon will perform at 8 p.m. April 11 at the F.M. Kirby Center. Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday at The Sundance Vacations Box Office at the F.M.

Formed in 1967, signed in 1971 and fronted by iconic vocalist Kevin Cronin since 1972, REO Speedwagon’s unrelenting drive, as well as non-stop touring and recording jump-started the burgeoning rock movement in the Midwest. Platinum albums and radio staples soon followed, setting the stage for the release of the band’s explosive Hi Infidelity in 1980, which contained the massive hit singles “Keep On Loving You,” and “Take It On the Run.” That landmark album spent 15 weeks in the No. 1 slot and has since earned the RIAA’s coveted 10X Diamond Award for surpassing sales of 10 million units in the United States. REO Speedwagon has sold more than 40 million albums. Tickets are $49.50, $59.50, $69.50 and $99.50 plus fees. — STAFF REPORT
