REO Speedwagon On The Road Through Summer

REO Speedwagon has added 14 new summer dates onto its already busy 2023 itinerary, according to Ultimate Classic Rock. As it stands now, REO will kick off the year on February 1st at Savannah, Georgia’s Savannah Civic Center and has dates booked until the beginning of September when the band hits Saratoga, California’s The Mountain Winery.

REO Speedwagon has been passed over for induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame for decades now. Kevin Cronin, who’s kept REO together through thick and thin — and still sells out year after year for their legion of fans — told us that not getting into the Rock Hall is okay with him: “I understand what the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame thought process is. And I think in our case, at least; I mean, I think of myself as an artist and an entertainer. I mean, did I re-invent the wheel with REO Speedwagon? Probably not. I think I picked up influences from the Beatles and from a lot of bands that were around me, but I don’t know if in good conscience I could say I’m an innovator, and ‘did I create something brand new,’ y’know? And I think the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is looking for those types of seminal, pivotal bands.”
