When “The Midnight Rock N’ Roll Express” went on the road last year, music fans thought that it was a once in a lifetime opportunity to see some of the biggest bands altogether. Recently however it was announced that all groups involved that first time around — REO Speedwagon, Styx, and Ted Nugent — are all coming back to do it all over again!
Kevin Cronin, singer and guitarist of REO Speedwagon, broke the news in a press release along with Ted Nugent.
“Yo, wake up everybody!” Cronin stated. “Winter is over, the snow is melting, the sun is coming out — it’s time for the second annual REO, Styx, Nugent springtime extravaganza. We had so much fun in 2012 we all decided to fire this ‘Midwest Rock N’ Roll Express’ thing up and do it again. Time to strap on our six strings, pack up the trucks and tour buses, get together with our best rock buddies and go out and have some big fun. See y’all soon.”
The tour begins on April 18 in North Dakota and will travel around to 20 different cities, ending in Burgettstown, Pennsylvania. You can find a full listing of tour dates here, and tickets are on sale now!
While none of the bands have released new material in several years, this is the second year they’ve gone on tour, and proven that the classics are always a hit.
