Three great names in American rock history will come together for the United We Rock tour from June to August this year. Styx, REO Speedwagon and former Eagles guitarist Don Felder will play a 26-date itinerary that starts at the Sunlight Supply Amphitheatre in Ridgfield, Washington on 20 June and concludes at the PNC Bank Arts Centre in Holmdel, New Jersey, on 22 August. You can see the tongue-in-cheek tour announcement video above.
“Hitting the road with REO and Don Felder is gonna be an unforgettable evening of music for the fans,” says Styx vocalist and guitarist Tommy Shaw, “and another chance to hang with these good time friends of ours who love the life as much as we do.”
Felder adds: “I’m so excited to be spending the summer on tour with my good friends Styx and REO. It’s going to be a rocking summer filled with hit after hit and tons of fun for everyone. Come on out and party, dance and sing with us this summer. It’s going to be a blast.”
REO Speedwagon frontman Kevin Cronin notes: “I called up Tommy Shaw last summer and we were both thinking the same thing – let’s get the boys together, make some music and have some fun. REO Speedwagon and Styx together is a head-first plunge into the fountain of youth, an unstoppable force of nature. Add the amazing Don Felder to the mix and it’s a thundering slam dunk!”
