BEMIDJI — REO Speedwagon is coming to the Sanford Center Tuesday, March 21. Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. on Friday, Oct. 7.

REO Speedwagon was formed in 1967 and signed a record deal in 1971. Fronted by iconic vocalist Kevin Cronin since 1972, REO Speedwagon’s unrelenting drive, as well as non-stop touring and recording jump-started the burgeoning rock movement in the Midwest, a release said.

Platinum albums and radio staples soon followed, setting the stage for the release of the band’s explosive Hi Infidelity in 1980, which contained the massive hit singles “Keep On Loving You” and “Take It On the Run.”

Today, REO Speedwagon has sold more than 40 million albums around the globe, and Cronin and bandmates Bruce Hall (bass), Neal Doughty (keyboards), Dave Amato (guitar), and Bryan Hitt (drums) are still electrifying audiences worldwide in concert with hits and fan favorites, the release said.

Tickets start at $45 and are available at ticketmaster.com.
