2019 is shaping up to be yet another gig-filled year for REO Speedwagon. The band has rolled out the majority of its spring dates with REO kicking the year off on February 1st in Rohnert Park, California at Graton Resort & Casino, with the season's shows winding down on May 27th with a double bill with Styx at Hampton Beach, New Hampshire's Hampton Beach Casino Ballroom.

The band has two summer dates already on the books -- July 25th at York, Pennsylvania's York Fair, along with their August 10th appearance in Sturgis, North Dakota at Sturgis Buffalo Chip.

REO leader Kevin Cronin told us that despite some major successes since, the band would always be best remembered for their late-1980 release -- and 1981 blockbuster -- High Infidelity. Cronin explained that Hi Infidelity was just one of those key albums in rock that managed to seep into everyone's musical DNA at precisely the same time: "The record just got under people's skin; and I was saying that anyone who was in junior high through college in 1981, y'know, people couldn't help but have this record kind of drilled into 'em -- whether they (laughed) liked it or not. And so for us to kind of look back fondly and with humor and think back (to) what we were going through, that seems surreal because I remember it so vividly as though it were last week, or something."
