A Very Busy Break!

written by REO Speedwagon

Hi friends,
So our four-month “break” was actually action-packed! From Jimmy Kimmel Live and a gig at the legendary Whiskey a Go-Go with our Summer Road Trip tour mates, Train, to joining Kelly Ripa in Las Vegas for Live with Kelly and Mark, this has been a very busy break. There were the Charley Hoffman Foundation and Warburton St Jude benefit shows, free shows with the Jim Irsay band, (thoughts and prayers to Jim on his continuing recovery), a performance for SiriusXM rock-genius Eddie Trunk’s 40th anniversary, and an acoustic show with my buddy and seven-time major ATP champion Mats Wilander at the BNP Paribas Open in Indian Wells, CA. … just to mention a few of the fun and rewarding experiences I enjoyed due to the support you, the fans have shown REO Speedwagon through the years. You all have put me in a position of being able to give back; it feels great and you are part of it.

Now the break is over, rehearsals are behind us, and our friend Rick Springfield will be joining us in Reading, PA, as we begin our Spring 2024 tour. Our old tour buddies Cheap Trick and Levon will be joining us for shows later in April.

So come on out and join the fun. We miss you all! … kc
