Midwest rock heroes REO SPEEDWAGON and STYX have a rich touring and recording history together. In 2000, the bands recorded a live album and DVD called "Arch Allies: Live At Riverport" at Riverport Amphitheatre in Missouri. In 2009, the bands embarked on the "Can't Stop Rockin'" tour and marked the occasion with a single, "Can't Stop Rockin'", co-written by STYX's Tommy Shaw and REO SPEEDWAGON's Kevin Cronin. 2012 and 2013, REO SPEEDWAGON and STYX hit the road together with the wildly successful "The Midwest Rock ‘n Roll Express" tour.

Most recently, in January, STYX and Don Felder shared the Las Vegas stage for an unforgettable five-night limited engagement, "Styx & Don Felder: Renegades In The Fast Lane", at The Venetian Theatre inside The Venetian Las Vegas. And, on the "Rock Legends" cruise in February, Don Felder invited REO SPEEDWAGON's Dave Amato up for an amazing performance of "Hotel California".

Said Cronin: "I called up Tommy Shaw last summer and we were both thinking the same thing: let's get the boys together, make some music, and have some fun. REO SPEEDWAGON and STYX together is a headfirst 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!"

Added Shaw: "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."
