By the early '70s, REO Speedwagon’s unrelenting drive, as well as non-stop touring and recording, jump-started the burgeoning rock movement in the Midwest. It carved a path that was eventually followed by STYX, Kansas, Cheap Trick and more. REO rode the top of the charts with a RIAA-certified 22 million albums sold in the U.S. and 40 million around the globe, with a string of gold and platinum records and international hit singles.
REO are still doing what they've always done, taking good care of their legacy while keeping the focus on the future. Not a year has gone by where REO Speedwagon didn't perform live, thrilling fans with hit filled sets. REO's music continues to define excellence in song craftsmanship and brilliant live performance for several generations of fans who know all the words to such hits as “Keep on Loving You,” “Take It on the Run” and “Can’t Fight This Feeling.”
