Last year's debut of "The Midwest Rock 'n' Roll Express" tour, recognized by Rolling Stone as one of the "Ten Hottest Summer Package Tours of 2012," was such a huge success that Rock's finest from the Midwest-- REO Speedwagon, Styx and Ted Nugent--are teaming up again for another round of shows starting April 18 in Grand Forks, ND at Ralph Engelstad Arena. The tour will stop at the St. Augustine Amphitheatre on Friday, May 3.
Styx and REO Speedwagon will be offering direct-to-fan access to the best seats in the house via their own exclusive fan club pre-sales. Visit StyxWorld.com to join the Styx Lounge for access to exclusive content, ticket pre-sales and VIP packages, and visit www.facebook.com/reospeedwagon for information about REO Speedwagon's ticket pre-sales.
To say that everyone on the tour is excited to get back out there would be an understatement, in their own words:
"Due to the overwhelming success of last year's tour, we are going to once again wind up the juggernaut of megatainment. Styx, REO and the Motor City Madman: there aren't enough expletives in my vocabulary to explain how great this is...but I'll try. This is going to be *$@&#@*&@# awesome!" --James "JY" Young, Styx (guitars, vocals).
