Styx, REO Speedwagon and Don Felder Announce Summer Tour

Rock legends REO Speedwagon and Styx, along with very special guest star Don Felder —formerly of the Eagles—will join forces for the “United We Rock” U.S. summer tour, which kicks off in Ridgefield, WA on June 20. Produced by Live Nation, tickets for various cities will go on sale starting February 24.

REO Speedwagon and Styx have a rich touring and recording history together. In 2000, the bands recorded a live album and DVD called Arch Allies: Live at Riverport at Riverport Amphitheatre in Missouri. In 2009, the bands embarked on the “Can’t Stop Rockin’” Tour and marked the occasion with a single, “Can’t Stop Rockin’,” co-written by Styx’s Tommy Shaw and REO Speedwagon’s Kevin Cronin. In 2012 and 2013, REO Speedwagon and Styx hit the road together with the wildly successful “The Midwest Rock ‘n Roll Express” tour.

Most recently, in January, Styx and Don Felder shared the Las Vegas stage for a five-night limited engagement, “Styx & Don Felder: Renegades In The Fast Lane,” and, on the Rock Legends Cruise in February, Don Felder invited REO Speedwagon’s Dave Amato up for a performance of “Hotel California.”

“I called up Tommy Shaw last summer and we were both thinking the same thing: let’s get the boys together, make some music, and have some fun,” says REO Speedwagon’s Kevin Cronin. “REO Speedwagon and Styx together is a head first plunge into the fountain of youth, an unstoppable force of nature. Add the amazing Don Felder to the mix and it’s a thundering slam dunk!”

“Hitting the road with REO and Don Felder is gonna be an unforgettable evening of music for the fans and another chance to hang with these good time friends of ours who love the life as much as we do,” added Tommy Shaw of Styx.
