Chicago, REO Speedwagon announce co-headlining dates

Two of the most successful and critically acclaimed rock bands, Chicago and REO Speedwagon – who have sold 140 million records combined – have announced a co-headline North American summer tour kicking off June 13th in Concord, CA. The 30+ date tour, promoted by Live Nation, will take the multi-platinum selling groups through major cities including Los Angeles, Chicago, Boston, Toronto, Atlanta and Nashville for a night of unforgettable live music. The tour will conclude August 12th in Detroit, MI.

Tickets for the tour go on sale starting Friday, February 9th at noon in select cities via Live Nation. Please see below for full tour itinerary and details.

“It’s always a party sharing the stage with Kevin, Neal, Bruce, Dave and Bryan! They rock. We rock. The tour rocks!” says Chicago’s Robert Lamm of the upcoming trek.

“We love the Chicago guys. We all share that Midwest rock’ n roll ethic,” agrees REO Speedwagon frontman Kevin Cronin. “We work hard, rock hard & take care of business. So, c’mon out and party with Chicago and REO this summer.”

Fans will be treated to a night filled with a deep catalog of hits from both bands. Chicago, in planning a show unlike any other they’ve done before, will perform their historic album Chicago II in its entirety followed by the “world’s longest encore” as the band jokingly refers to it, filled with their greatest hits. REO Speedwagon will electrify audiences with hits and fan-favorites such as “In Your Letter,” “Can’t Fight This Feeling,” “Time For Me To Fly,” “Roll With The Changes,” “Keep On Loving You,” “Take It On the Run” and more.
