Rock legends Styx and REO Speedwagon, along with very special guest star Don Felder-formerly of the Eagles-will join forces to bring an unforgettable night of rock 'n' roll to the arena on Sunday, March 25. Prices range from $35 to $150.
The multi-Platinum rockers would eventually transform into the virtual arena rock prototype by the late '70s and early '80s, due to a fondness for big rockers and soaring power ballads. Over the course of their 40-year career they've released 15 studio albums, six best-of compilations and four live albums, garnering eight Top Ten singles. STYX has sold over 30 million albums worldwide. Throughout their illustrious career, they've performed more live shows since 1999 than all of the previous years of its career combined. Two Super-Bowl appearances, Pollstar box office chart-topping tours with Def Leppard, Journey, Boston, and Bad Company (to name only a few), two more studio albums. September 2, 2016 marked the long-awaited release date of STYX: LIVE AT THE ORLEANS ARENA LAS VEGAS on DVD, Blu-ray and Digital Formats via Eagle Rock Entertainment. It captures the band performing in July 2014 such fan favorites as: "Too Much Time On My Hands." "Fooling Yourself (The Angry Young Man)," "Renegade," and more. It also includes a special surprise visit from DON FELDER for a rousing performance of "Blue Collar Man (Long Nights)." It was released on CD July 24, 2015. STYX continues to conquer the planet, one venue at a time.
About REO Speedwagon
Formed in 1967, signed in 1971 and fronted by iconic vocalist Kevin Cronin since 1972, REO Speedwagon is a band where the main constant over the decades is a never-ending desire to give their all to their
fans, year in and year out. Formed loosely in the late 1960s at college in Champaign, IL, REO (named after the precursor to the light truck) rode to gigs in station wagons, hopping from small gigs to even tinier gigs, just to
get their name out. It worked, as fans quickly realized there was much more going on here than your average college party band.
By the early 1970s, the band's unrelenting drive, as well as non-stop touring and recording, jump-started the burgeoning rock movement in the Midwest. It carved a path that was eventually followed by STYX, Kansas, Cheap Trick and
more. Platinum albums and freeform FM radio staples such as "Ridin' The Storm Out" followed, set the stage for 1980's explosive
Hi Infidelity. REO rode the top of the charts with a RIAA-certified 22 million albums sold in the United States and 40 million around the globe, with a string of gold and platinum records and international hit singles, including "Take It on the Run," "Can't Fight This Feeling" and the platinum-certified "Keep On Loving You."
