REO Speedwagon is set to bring their timeless hits and rock radio staples to The Hanover Theatre for the Performing Arts on Oct. 3. The band, fronted by iconic vocalist Kevin Cronin, along with bandmates Bruce Hall (bass), Neal Doughty (keyboards), Dave Amato (guitar), and Bryan Hitt (drums), electrify audiences in concert worldwide with fan-favorites such as “In Your Letter,” “Can’t Fight This Feeling,” “Time For Me To Fly,” “Roll With The Changes,” “Keep On Loving You” and “Take It On the Run,” and many more. When REO Speedwagon comes to The Hanover Theatre, fans in Worcester will enjoy an unforgettable night of classic Midwestern rock n’ roll.
Formed in 1967, signed in 1971, and fronted by Cronin since 1972, REO Speedwagon’s unrelenting drive, as well as non-stop touring and recording jump-started the burgeoning rock movement in the Midwest. Platinum albums and radio staples soon followed, setting the stage for the release of the band’s explosive Hi Infidelity in 1980, which contained the massive hit singles “Keep On Loving You,” and “Take It On the Run.” That landmark album spent 15 weeks in the No. 1 slot and has since earned the RIAA’s coveted 10X Diamond Award for surpassing sales of 10 million units in the United States. Today, REO Speedwagon has sold 40 million albums around the globe.
