Formed in 1967, signed in 1971, and fronted by iconic vocalist Kevin Cronin since 1972, REO Speedwagon is a band where the main constant over the decades is a never-ending desire to give their all to their fans, year in and year out.
By the early ‘70s, the band’s drive, as well as non-stop touring and recording, jumpstarted the rock movement in the Midwest. It carved a path that was eventually followed by STYX, Kansas, Cheap Trick and more. Platinum albums and freeform FM radio staples such as “Ridin’ The Storm Out” followed, setting the stage for 1980’s explosive Hi Infidelity, which received the Recording Industry Association of America®’s 10X Diamond Award for surpassing sales of 10 million units in the U.S. REO rode the top of the charts with an RIAA-certified 22 million albums sold in the U.S. and 40 million around the globe, a string of gold and platinum records, and international hit singles.
