REO Speedwagon teams up with Chicago for tour heading to DTE

Posted By on Mon, Feb 5, 2018 at 2:37 PM

We can’t fight this feeling anymore, you guys. After all these years, we
keep on loving REO Speedwagon. And this time around, they're teaming up with "If you leave me now" rockers, Chicago for a Midwestern rock extravaganza.

With a combined 140 million records sold worldwide, REO Speedwagon and Chicago will kick off a co-headlining tour in Colorado in June. The tour spans over 30 dates and will stop at DTE Energy Music Theatre on Sunday, Aug. 12.

"It's always a party sharing the stage with Kevin, Neal, Bruce, Dave, and Bryan! They rock. We rock. The tour rocks!" Chicago's Robert Lamm said in a press release.

The “Take it on the run” soft-rockers from Illinois have championed the anthem ballad game since their conception in 1967. REO has endured lineup changes and, sure, these dudes haven't exactly been churning out the new tunes — aside from that 2009 Christmas album. Oh, but there was that time they performed with Pitbull.

Tickets go on sale Friday, Feb. 9 at 12 p.m. via,, and the Fox Theatre and Little Caesars Arena box offices. and range from $29.50-$129.50
