Multi-Platinum selling rock band REO Speedwagon will take the stage at The Venetian Theatre inside The Venetian® Resort Las Vegas for two nights. The “An Evening of Hi Infidelity …And More” shows are scheduled to begin at 8:30 p.m. and feature the band – for the first time ever – playing their entire 1981 landmark album, Hi Infidelity, from beginning to end, along with a second set of hits and fan favorites.
Formed in 1967, signed in 1971, and 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. 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.” That landmark album spent 15 weeks in the No. 1 slot and has since earned the RIAA’s coveted 10X Diamond Award for surpassing sales of 10 million units in the United States.
From 1977 to 1989, REO Speedwagon released nine consecutive albums all certified Platinum or higher. Today, REO Speedwagon has sold more than 40 million albums around the globe, and Cronin and bandmates Bruce Hall (bass), Dave Amato (guitar), and Bryan Hitt (drums) are still electrifying audiences worldwide in concert with hits and fan-favorites such as “Ridin’ The Storm Out,” “Can’t Fight This Feeling,” “Time For Me To Fly,” “Roll With The Changes,” “Keep On Loving You,” “Take It On the Run,” and many, many more.
Tickets go on sale April 7 and can be purchased at any box office at The Venetian Resort or by calling 702.414.9000 or 866.641.7469.
