REO Speedwagon to Rock The Orleans Showroom, 9/19-20

"Keep On Loving You" rockers REO Speedwagon will bring nearly 40 years of hits to the Orleans Showroom September 19-20.

Loosely formed in 1967 playing frat parties at the University of Illinois, REO Speedwagon signed with Epic Records in 1971. The band released nine albums throughout the '70s, culminating with the twice-platinum "You Can Tune a Piano but You Can't Tuna Fish" in 1978.

REO Speedwagon exploded to the top of the charts, setting the bar for other rock bands with their 1980 release "Hi Infidelity." The colossal hit spent 15 weeks at #1 on the Billboard 200, selling more than 10 million copies. The group's most commercially successful album, it remained on the charts for 65 weeks and spawned the #1 single "Keep On Loving You" as well as hits "Take It on the Run," "In Your Letter" and "Don't Let Him Go."

The band continued releasing hit albums into the '80s, including 1984's "Wheels Are Turnin'" and its #1 single "Can't Fight This Feeling." REO Speedwagon released "Find Your Own Way Home," their 15th studio album, in 2007. Two years later, they teamed up with fellow Midwestern rockers Styx for the single "Can't Stop Rockin'," which became the title track for the groups' hit summer tour with .38 Special.

The current lineup includes founding member Neal Doughty, iconic lead singer Kevin Cronin, longtime bass player Bruce Hall, former Ted Nugent guitarist Dave Amato and former Wang Chung drummer Bryan Hitt.

Showtime is 8 p.m. Tickets are available starting from $59.95 plus tax and fees. Tickets can be purchased at any Boyd Gaming Box Office, by calling 702.636.7075, or by visiting www.orleanscasino.com.
