Last month, Styx and ex-Eagles guitarist Don Felder teamed up for a brief Las Vegas residency, and now the veteran rock acts will join forces with REO Speedwagon for a major U.S. summer trek dubbed the United We Stand Tour. The outing kicks off with a June 20 show in Ridgefield, Washington, and is mapped out through an August 22 concert in Holmdel, New Jersey.
Styx and REO, who have toured together numerous times over the year, will alternate as headliner throughout the 2017 trek, while Felder will serve as the opening act.
Tickets for the trek will be available to the general public beginning Friday, February 24, at 10 a.m. local time. Pre-sale tickets and VIP packages will be sold starting Tuesday, February 21, at noon local time; visit StyxWorld.com, REOSpeedwagon.com and DonFelder.com for more info.
Styx singer/guitarist Tommy Shaw says of the tour, “Hitting the road with REO and Don Felder is gonna be an unforgettable evening of music for the fans and another chance to hang with these good time friends of ours who love the life as much as we do.”
REO frontman Kevin Cronin adds, “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!”
