REO Speedwagon, Styx reunite for 2018 spring tour

You gotta give it up for REO Speedwagon and Styx. Once fierce rivals in the late '70s and early '80s, they're practically bosom buddies nowadays. The two Illinois-born bands have joined forces for tours (and live DVDs) through the years, and they'll do so again this coming spring, bringing Don Felder along with them.

Yes, it's basically an extension of their summer 2017 tour, but we'll lap it up anyway. The sad thing for Florida fans is the tour won't return here. However, REO Speedwagon does have a one-off date April 13 at Orlando's Hard Rock Live. (Count me in for that. Frankly, it's not Styx for me without Dennis DeYoung anyway.)

The tour begins March 13 in Duluth and wraps up April 15 in South Carolina. Check Pollstar.com for a full list of dates.
