VH1 Classic and Rock Band are proud to bring the Can’t Stop Rockin’ 2009 Tour to America, featuring STYX, REO SPEEDWAGON and .38 SPECIAL, three of the hardest working bands in rock n roll.
Can’t Stop Rockin’ kicks off on May 13th in Albuquerque, New Mexico and will feature hit-packed sets spanning the course of these three unparalleled rock legacies. The tour is geared to give the ultimate classic rock experience at a fan friendly ticket price. Confirmed tour dates are listed on the official website tour page, with additional concerts to be announced shortly.
To celebrate their upcoming trek together, Styx and Reo Speedwagon teamed up to record a new single, 'Can’t Stop Rockin’', co-written by REO Speedwagon’s Kevin Cronin and Styx’ Tommy Shaw. 'Can’t Stop Rockin’' makes its radio debut in March and will be available for download.
"Both bands have always tried to keep our ticket prices low so that none of our fans get left out. It's our own personal Rock 'n’ Roll Stimulus package," says Tommy Shaw. “It’s been nine years since the Arch Allies tour and it just seemed like the right time to team up with our friends in REO and hit the road again.” Kevin Cronin adds, “The world is going through a weird phase, and everybody needs music now more than ever. We all need to join our friends, pool our resources, combine our energies, because there is power in people coming together. That spirit has brought REO and Styx together to write, record and tour together, and celebrate it all with the greatest fans in America.”
