Styx, REO Speedwagon & Don Felder
United We Rock Tour 2017
- 07/20 Thursday | 7:00 PM
Live Nation and Bold Events today announced that rock legends Styx and REO Speedwagon, along with very special guest star Don Felder, formerly of the Eagles, will bring their "United We Rock" U.S. summer tour to Daily’s Place on Thursday, July 20.
"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. 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,” said Kevin Cronin of REO Speedwagon.
Tommy Shaw (vocals, guitars), James "JY" Young (vocals, guitars), Lawrence Gowan (vocals, keyboards), Todd Sucherman (drums) and Ricky Phillips (bass), along with the occasional surprise appearance by original bassist Chuck Panozzo, would eventually transform into STYX by the late '70s and early '80s, due to a fondness for big rockers and soaring power ballads. Over the course of their 40-year career they've released 15 studio albums, six best-of compilations and four live albums, garnering eight Top Ten singles. STYX has sold over 30 million albums worldwide.
REO Speedwagon's unrelenting drive, as well as non-stop touring and recording, jump-started the burgeoning rock movement in the Midwest. Platinum albums and freeform FM radio staples followed, setting the stage for the release of the band's explosive Hi Infidelity in 1980, which contained the massive hit singles "Keep On Loving You" and "Take It On the Run," and spent 15 weeks in the No. 1 slot. To date, REO Speedwagon has sold 40 million albums around the globe, with Hi Infidelity approaching ten times platinum status in the U.S.
Don Felder, former guitarist of the Eagles, New York Times best-selling author and four-time Grammy® Award winner, released his second solo album (and first since 1983), Road To Forever, on October 9, 2012 and has been on tour throughout the U.S. ever since.
