An Evening with REO Speedwagon: Tickets on Sale to Public Sept. 10

Sep-06-2012

Tickets for the Sept. 29 Family Weekend performance of REO Speedwagon will go on sale to the general public on Monday, Sept. 10.

The band will perform at 8 p.m. in Lantz Arena.  Tickets are $27 each, and may be purchased between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m., Monday through Friday, at the MLK Jr. Union Ticket Office, located on the second floor of the west wing.  For phone orders, call 217-581-3616/581-5122.  Visa and Mastercard are accepted.  All seats reserved.

Fronted by iconic vocalist Kevin Cronin since 1972, members of REO Speedwagon began by riding in station wagons, going from tiny gigs to even tinier gigs, just to get their name out.  Later, they rode the top of the charts with 22 million albums sold in the U.S. and 40 million around the globe, with a string of gold and platinum records and international hit singles.

REO Speedwagon has that Midwest work ethic.  The band has gone onstage and in the studio and done the work -- dozens of albums, hundreds of concerts and infinite radio spins.  Not a year has gone by where REO Speedwagon didn’t perform live, thrilling fans with hits like “Keep On Loving You” and “Can’t Fight This Feeling.”
