REO Speedwagon and STYX to Give a Rockin’ Performance at Laughlin Event Center this September
March 6, 2023
Laughlin, Nev. – (March 6, 2023) – The Laughlin Event Center will add to its star-studded lineup of legendary musical talent with the return of REO Speedwagon and the first visit by STYX, set to rock the stage on Saturday, Sept. 30.
Formed in 1967 and fronted by iconic vocalist Kevin 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 set 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.” The 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. REO Speedwagon has sold more than 40 million albums around the globe, and Cronin and bandmates Bruce Hall, Dave Amato and Bryan Hitt continue to electrify audiences worldwide with hits and fan-favorites such as “In Your Letter,” “Can’t Fight This Feeling,” “Time For Me To Fly,” “Roll With The Changes” and many more.
STYX established itself as one of the most successful “arena rock” groups of all time with chart-topping hits and joyous singalongs such as “Come Sail Away,” “Renegade,” “The Grand Illusion” and “Blue Collar Man (Long Nights).” Currently comprised of James “JY” Young, Tommy Shaw, Chuck Panozzo, Todd Sucherman, Lawrence Gowan and Ricky Phillips, the band draws on unlimited ways to immerse one’s mind and body in their signature sound. Since forming in 1972, STYX has recorded 16 Top 40 U.S. singles, had five consecutive albums certified multi-platinum by the RIAA and has sold more than 30 million albums worldwide. “Crash of the Crown,” STYX’s “masterpiece” 17th studio album written pre-pandemic and recorded during the trying times of the pandemic, was released June 18, 2021 on the band’s label, Alpha Dog 2T/UMe.
