REO Speedwagon Expands Summer And Fall Dates
REO Speedwagon has added 10 new stops to its summer and fall itinerary. REO kicked off the year as part of the ongoing "Midwest Rock 'n Roll Express" tour with Styx and Ted Nugent, and has been gigging all over North America since. REO kicks off its next string of shows on August 2nd in Waverly, Iowa at the Bremer County Fairgrounds, and as of now, will wind things down for the year on November 23rd and 24th at Las Vegas' The Orleans Hotel & Casino Showroom.
 
Bandleader and frontman Kevin Cronin told us that forget about the band painstakingly crafting their masterpiece -- the only game plan behind the 1981 Hi Infidelity album was to not get dumped by their record label: "Basically, we were in the studio and we had the guillotine hanging above our necks. Y'know, the record company was like, 'Something better happen (laughs) with this next record, or you guys are history,' y'know? Pretty much every record we made, we were on the brink of having our contract canceled. But looking back on it, it probably helped motivate us in some way."
