REO Speedwagon and Styx have announced plans to embark on a co-headlining tour of the U.S. next year with Loverboy as special guest.
The 35-date Live & Unzoomed Tour is set to kicks off on May 31 at the Van Andel Arena in Grand Rapids, Michigan, and is currently scheduled to conclude on August 21 at Northwell Health at Jones Beach Theater in Wantagh, New York. The tour also features one show in Canada on August 16 in Toronto.
Tickets for various dates on the Live & Unzoomed Tour will go on sale to the general public on Friday, December 10, at 10 a.m. local time at LiveNation.com.
A funny video announcing the tour was also released that shows Styx’s Tommy Shaw and REO Speedwagon’s Kevin Cronin discussing over Zoom about what they did during Covid-19 pandemic, with Loverboy’s Mike Reno “zoombombing” their video.
“I can’t think of a better way of touring the USA next year than with good friends we’ve known for years and performed with on many a stage,” Shaw says in a statement. “What a great night of music this will be!”
Adds Cronin, “Tommy and I have done a number of Zoom performances together during the pandemic, and REO and Styx are ready to go get UnZoomed, and out on the road for our fifth U.S. tour together. Add our great friends Mike Reno and the Loverboy guys, and I am totally psyched.”
Meanwhile, Reno declares, “Best tour of the summer.guaranteed.”
