REO Speedwagon Background

Unofficially, REO Speedwagon took shape in the '60s in Champaign, Illinois, at the university. Band members journeyed to shows in station wagons, booking as many shows as they possibly could just to get their name out. Their strategy worked, and fans quickly learned there was much more to this band than just being a run-of-the-mill campus party band.By the early '70s, REO's tireless motivation as well as their exhaustive tour schedule and recording, launched the mushrooming rock movement in the Midwest. REO blazed the trail for outfits like Cheap Trick, Styx, Kansas and more, to follow. REO topped the charts with a cool 22 million albums sold in the United States and nearly doubled that around the planet, with a slew of gold and platinum albums and global hit tracks.

Even today, with their songs saturating the airwaves in every town and every city, REO Speedwagon still sticks to their Midwestern work ethic. The band is always working validated by dozens of records, thousands of live performances and infinite radio spins. They have kept their eyes both on the road and the future. There hasn't been one year that has passed without them taking to the road, captivating live audiences with their contagious tunes.

Their album,Hi Infidelity, has had a huge impact on the face of rock and roll. The album's sales success was driven by colossal hits like "Take It On the Run" and "Keep On Loving You." Over four decades later, the album, which scored platinum certification nine times, still stands as a pedestal for rock bands. The album settled in at the No. 1 spot for 15 weeks, an achievement simply inaccessible in music today.

Kevin Cronin, serves as the linchpin of the band, along with fellow rockers Neal Doughty (keyboardist); Dave Amato (lead guitarist);; Bryan Hitt (drummer); and Bruce Hall (bass). After a decade-long hiatus from recording, REO Speedwagon issuedFind Your Own Way Homein 2007. The effort marked their 15th studio release. Two years later, REO joined Styx to cut the single, "Can't Stop Rockin'," which was co-penned by both bands' frontmen Tommy Shaw and Cronin.

The Can't Stop Rockin' Tour resulted, with REO Speedwagon hitting the road with Styx and.38 Special to bring together three of the most-loved and hard-working groups in America. By the time 2009 ended, the trio were presented with a nomination for the "Most Creative Tour Package" by Pollstar. The tour was additionally billed as one of the most profitable and most successful concert tours of the year. In November 2009, REO droppedNot So Silent Night … Christmas with REO Speedwagonto celebrate the holidays. By the time the summer of 2010 rolled around, REO took up another creative partnership with the iconic Pat Benatar. The Love on the Run Tour pieced beloved songs of the '80s together, reminiscent of the time when both artists dominated the Billboard charts with No. 1 spots and Top 10 rankings. While on the 2010 tour, REO let fans know that the 30th anniversary deluxe edition reissue ofHi Infidelitywas on its way.In the spring of 2013, REO climbed aboard the Midwest Rock N' Roll Express Tour, which kicked off in Grand Forks, Michigan, and stopped at more than 20 cities around the country.

These days REO Speedwagon is still doing what they do best, carrying on their rock-and-roll legacy by playing arenas, fairs and clubs everywhere.
