Classic rock legends return to the Hudson Valley on Friday

REO Speedwagon will play at the Resorts World Catskills in Monticello on Friday.

REO Speedwagon developed a following in the 1970s and achieved significant commercial success in the 1980s. Their 1980 album Hi infidelity was the band’s best-selling album with over 10 million sales. It would be the best-selling rock album of 1981 with the singles “Keep On Loving You” and “Take it on the Run”. “Don’t Let Him Go” and “Tough Guys” were also popular songs on the album.
The group has sold over 40 million records and recorded thirteen Top 40 hits, including number one “Keep On Loving You” and “Can’t Fight This Feeling”. REO Speedwagon remains popular on the touring circuit. Other REO Speedwagon favorites include “Roll With the Changes”, “Time For Me to Fly” and Ridin ‘the Storm Out “.

The last time REO Speedwagon played in the area was in Poughkeepsie at the Mid Hudson Civic Center (aka MJ Nesheiwat Convention Center) where I saw them from the second row.

REO Speedwagon, just another legendary classic rock band on a long list of bands expected to make the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame along with Styx, Foreigner, Boston, Blue Oyster Cult, Motley Crue, Judas Priest, etc. Go out and see these classic rock legends while they’re still on tour. I’ve seen the band so many times over the years that I’ve lost count. And I plan to see them again this Friday as the band celebrates its 40th anniversary. Hi infidelity. Always a great show!
