SPONSORED -- Formed in 1967 and fronted by iconic vocalist Kevin Cronin since 1972, REO Speedwagon over the decades has proven a never-ending desire to give their all to their fans, year in and year out. By the early '70s, the band's unrelenting drive, as well as non-stop touring and recording, jump-started the burgeoning rock movement in the Midwest. Platinum albums and freeform FM radio staples such as"Ridin' The Storm Out" followed, setting the stage for 1980's explosive Hi Infidelity. Hi Infidelity's millions in sales were fueled by massive hit singles such as "Keep On Loving You" and"Take It On the Run." Thirty-plus years later, the nine-times certified platinum Hi Infidelity still remains a high-water mark for rock bands; the album spent 15 weeks in the #1 slot, a feat simply unattainable in music today. REO rode the top of the charts with a RIAA-certified 22 million albums sold in the U.S. and 40 million around the globe, with a string of gold and platinum records and international hit singles. These days, REO –frontman Kevin Cronin and bandmates Bruce Hall (bass), Neal Doughty (keyboards), Dave Amato (lead guitar) and Bryan Hitt (drums)- are still doing what they've always done: electrifying concert audiences worldwide. REO's career will always carry on with music that continues to define excellence in song craftsmanship and brilliant live performance for several generations of fans.
