Tickets to see REO Speedwagon go on sale Friday, January 24.
ATLANTIC CITY, NJ (January 21, 2020) – The same band that jumpstarted the burgeoning rock movement in the Midwest by the early ‘70s and carved a path followed by STYX, Kansas, Cheap Trick and more will return to Tropicana Atlantic City. REO Speedwagon will rock the Showroom Stage Saturday, May 30 at 8 p.m.
With songs on the radio in every city and town, REO Speedwagon has come a long way from riding to gigs in station wagons. Best known for fan-favorite hits 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 many more, REO Speedwagon is still electrifying audiences worldwide.
The nearly ten-times platinum 1980’s landmark album, “Hi Infidelity,” still remains a high-water mark for rock bands. The album spent 15 weeks in the #1 slot and received the Recording Industry Association of America®’s 10X Diamond Award for surpassing sales of 10 million units in the U.S. The album set the band at the top of the charts with a RIAA-certified 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. “Hi Infidelity’s” millions in sales were fueled by massive hit singles such as “Keep On Loving You” and “Take It On the Run.”
More recently, REO Speedwagon released “Find Your Own Way Home,” marking the band's 15th studio effort and two years later recorded a new single “Can’t Stop Rockin’.” The band also celebrated the holidays with the release of “Not So Silent Night...Christmas with REO Speedwagon.”
Since, REO Speedwagon has been touring countless cities with other big name artists. In 2010, REO teamed up with Pat Benatar for the “Love on the Run Tour” and announced the release of their 30th anniversary deluxe edition reissue of “Hi Infidelity.” In 2012, REO linked up with Styx and Ted Nugent for the Midwest Rock N' Roll Express tour. Highly successful, the tour returned in 2013. In the midst, Live at Moondance Jam - the band’s hit-filled performance from the country’s premier classic rock festival, was released in both a Blu-ray and a deluxe edition.
Summer of 2014 found the band kicking-off a co-headlining tour of two legendary rock bands, REO and Chicago. Following yet another successful tour, REO Speedwagon lined up their “Family First Tour” which began in March of 2015.
2016 saw REO Speedwagon on the road with Def Leppard followed by a collaboration with Styx and Don Felder (Formerly of the Eagles) for the “United We Rock” in 2017. Finally, in the summer of 2018 REO Speedwagon and Chicago joined forces for a co-headlining tour of North America rocking 30 cities along the run.
Tickets to see REO Speedwagon at Tropicana Atlantic City begin at $65 plus tax and fees. Tickets are available beginning Friday, January 24 at 10 a.m. through Ticketmaster at Ticketmaster.com or at the Tropicana Box Office.
