REO Speedwagon [John Luini]

Classic rock icons REO Speedwagon have confirmed a new Las Vegas residency. The multi-platinum selling rock band will take the stage at The Venetian Theatre inside The Venetian® Resort Las Vegas for six nights next year. The “An Evening of Hi Infidelity…and More” residency will see the storied group perform their entire 1981 watershed LP, Hi Infidelity, from beginning to end, along with a second set of hits and fan favorites.

Tickets go on sale this Friday, December 15.

Next spring, REO Speedwagon and Rick Springfield are embarking on a brief co-headlining tour. The trek kicks off on March 20 at Santander Arena in Reading, Pennsylvania and wraps up on March 27 at the Knoxville Civic Auditorium-Coliseum in Knoxville, Tennessee. Tickets for all dates are on sale now.

REO Speedwagon’s last album was 2007’s Find Your Way Home. The band’s fifteenth studio effort, it featured the Billboard-charting single, “I Need to Fall.” The record was released through the band’s own label, Speedwagon Recordings. Throughout their, REO Speedwagon have sold over 40 million records worldwide. They’ve released 13 Top 40 hits, including chart-toppers “Can’t Fight This Feeling” and “Keep On Loving You.” The crown jewel of their catalog is 1980’s Hi Infidelity, which peaked at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 and has since received the rare diamond certification from the RIAA.

Back in January, founding keyboardist Neal Doughty announced his retirement from touring with the band after five decades. Longtime frontman Kevin Cronin remains, alongside bassist Bruce Hall, who joined the band in 1977. When Doughty confirmed his retirement from the road, Hall said that he would always be a member of the REO Speedwagon brotherhood, and that the door for him to play with the band again would always be open.

Cronin and Hall tour with guitarist Dave Amato, who joined the group in 1989, and drummer Brian Hitt, who came aboard in 1990.

Formed in 1967, signed in 1971, and fronted by iconic vocalist Kevin Cronin since 1972, 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 radio staples soon 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.” That landmark album spent 15 weeks in the No. 1 slot and has since earned the RIAA’s coveted 10x Diamond Award for surpassing sales of 10 million units in the United States.

From 1977 to 1989, REO Speedwagon released nine consecutive albums all certified Platinum or higher. Today, REO Speedwagon has sold more than 40 million albums around the globe, and Cronin and bandmates Bruce Hall (bass), Dave Amato (guitar), and Bryan Hitt (drums) are still electrifying audiences worldwide in concert with hits and fan-favorites such as “Ridin’ The Storm Out,” “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, many more.
