REO Speedwagon Comes to Jamestown NY!!

Soaring from its roots in small town America, the legendary rock band REO Speedwagon has toured every year since its inception to perform for fans who enthusiastically sing along to number one hits “Can’t Fight This Feeling” and “Keep On Loving You,” as well as classics like “Roll With the Changes,” “Keep Pushin’,” “Time for Me to Fly,” “Riding the Storm Out,” “I Needed To Fall” “Smilin’ In The End” and “Take It On the Run.”

            REO rolls into Jamestown for a rare concert appearance at the Jamestown Savings Bank Arena on Thursday, September 23, at 7:30 p.m.

            What started as a local band playing cover songs in campus bars at the University of Illinois in Champaign-Urbana grew to become an enduring musical force, selling more than 40 million albums and being honored with a Behind the Music special on VH1.

            Even now, the band stays relevant with new songs and fresh recording projects like their 2007 CD Find Your Own Way Home and its accompanying online video game.  This past holiday season they released a Christmas album called Not So Silent Night … Christmas with REO Speedwagon.  The official website is www.reospeedwagon.com.  MySpace page is http://www.myspace.com/reospeedwagon.

            Tickets to the Jamestown concert are priced at $46.50 and $36.50 plus applicable service fees, and may be purchased online at www.jamestownarena.com, by phone at 877-77-CLICK or in person at the Arena Box Office (319 West Third Street).  Sales start Friday, July 30, at 10:00 a.m.
