Both are wholly owned subsidiaries of the Fort Mojave Indian Tribe.
Be a part of music history as these two acts perform for their first time together on stage!
"It's ironic, that these two legendary bands, who both have roots in Illinois, were label-mates (Columbia/Epic) in the 70's, and experienced waves of immense success in the 80's and 90's, and have somehow continued to consistently make compelling music, both in-studio and on tour.... have never before performed together!" says Chicago's Robert Lamm. "This situation is about to change, as Chicago and REO will perform together during the concert's encore and present a finale that will thrill their audiences. As a musician who has always respected REO's skills, I look forward to our first rehearsals early this summer. This will be fun!"
"With so many personal connections between various members of REO and Chicago, it is amazing that we have never actually toured together. I love it that the Chicago guys feel the way we do about truly playing together when you tour together," says REO Speedwagon's Kevin Cronin. "Can you imagine the Chicago horn section on 'Roll With the Changes'? That would blow my mind! This tour promises to deliver some unique music from two bands who have made a ton of hit records, share that Midwest work ethic, and still refuse to sit back on their past accomplishments. We both keep raising the bar, challenging ourselves, and rocking hard... and the audience is the ultimate winner. We are psyched... I can't wait for this tour."
Be at Mojave Crossing this October to experience these two legendary acts perform their top hits!
Tickets go on sale to the public July 4, 2014 and start at just $45, which includes live entertainment from both bands.
