Multi-platinum recording artists REO Speedwagon will bring their classic hits to Mystic Lake Casino Hotel on Friday, August 31. Best known for their chart-topping 1980s anthems including “Can’t Fight This Feeling,” the band has sold more than 40 million albums worldwide and charted 13 Billboard Top 40 hits.
REO Speedwagon’s 1980 album Hi Infidelity sold more than 10 million copies and scored four Top 40 singles including “Take It On the Run” and the No. 1 hit “Keep On Loving You.” After the band released 2007′s Find Your Own Way Home on their own, their frequent radio station visits and popular tours have resulted in nationwide radio play and exposure to a new generation of fans.
Tickets to see REO Speedwagon at 8 p.m. on Friday, August 31, in the Mystic Showroom are available for $38 and $49. Contact the Mystic Box Office at 952-445-9000 or go to mysticlake.com for more details.
The roots of the new album go back to the spring of 2000, when the band joined forces with fellow Midwest rockers Styx for a national, sold-out, co-headlining tour. The tour proved to be such a commercial success that it was recorded live and released on both CD and DVD, jokingly entitled "Arch Allies". The bands appeared together on the Today show, VH1, and on numerous syndicated radio shows, including The Howard Stern Show.
