Formed in 1967 and fronted by iconic vocalist Kevin Cronin since 1972, REO Speedwagon has maintained its Midwest work ethic and given their fans a reason to keep on loving them.

The band has produced numerous hits over the years including “Ridin’ The Storm Out,” “Keep On Loving You,” and “Take it on the Run.” Its “Hi Infidelity” album in the 1980’s was certified platinum nine times and still remains a high-water mark for rock bands. The album spent 15 weeks in the #1 slot.

Besides Cronin, REO Speedwagon consists of Bruce Hall on bass, Neal Doughty on keyboards, Dave Amato on lead guitar and Bryan Hitt on drums.

Of late, the band has been linked to the Midwest Rock N’ Roll Express Tour. In the spring and summer of 2012, REO teamed with Styx and Ted Nugent for a tour which traveled around the country. Last year, the Midwest Rock N’ Roll Express Tour hit more than 20 cities.
