Styx and REO Speedwagon announce 2022 summer tour


Styx, REO Speedwagon and Loverboy are expected to join forces next summer for the Live and without zoom to visit.

The hike will hit 35 cities starting May 31 in Grand Rapids, Michigan and is currently scheduled to end August 21 in Wantagh, NY. Tickets go on sale December 10. You can see the full list of tour dates below.

“Three years ago none of us knew what Zoom was,” Styx’s Lawrence Gowan said with a laugh in an exclusive interview with UCR. “It was just a word I remember using when I was a kid about a fast car. I got a call from the office saying, “We’re going to make a Zoom call” and I was like, “What the hell is this?” “

A humorous video announcing the tour, which you can watch below, shows Styx’s Tommy Shaw and REO Speedwagon’s Kevin Cronin catching up on their far-from-the-road activities. Loverboy’s Mike Reno joins the conversation intermittently, in a way that looks a lot like “zombombing.”

Cronin told UCR the upcoming dates are “very special,” highlighting a 20-year touring relationship shared by REO and Styx. “You throw Loverboy, and that puts him right on top.”

Echoing Cronin’s comments, Reno told UCR in a separate conversation that he was excited to mount Loverboy’s first full tour since the pandemic began. “We are so ready to hit the road again. It’s going to be awesome. “

All three groups are armed with an impressive arsenal of classic rock favorites, but also have projects going on. Styx will continue to showcase material from The shock of the crown, their 2021 studio album. Reno says Loverboy has new music in the works, while Cronin is hoping his much-discussed memoir will coincide with the tour.
