The Midwest Rock ‘n’ Roll Express 2013

REO Speedwagon & Styx with special guest Ted Nugent

Friday, April 19 – 7:00PM

 

 

Last year’s debut of “The Midwest Rock ‘n Roll Express” tour, recognized by Rolling Stone as one of the “Ten Hottest Summer Package Tours of 2012,” was such a huge success that Rock’s finest from the Midwest— REO Speedwagon, Styx and Ted Nugent—are teaming up again for another round of shows starting April 18 in Grand Forks, ND at Ralph Engelstad Arena. 

 

Styx and REO Speedwagon will be offering direct-to-fan access to the best seats in the house via their own exclusive fan club pre-sales.  Visit StyxWorld.com to join the Styx Lounge for access to exclusive content, ticket pre-sales and VIP packages, and visit www.facebook.com/reospeedwagon for information about REO Speedwagon's ticket pre-sales.

 

To say that everyone on the tour is excited to get back out there would be an understatement, in their own words:

 

“Due to the overwhelming success of last year’s tour, we are going to once again wind up the juggernaut of megatainment.  Styx, REO and the Motor City Madman:  there aren’t enough expletives in my vocabulary to explain how great this is…but I’ll try.  This is going to be *$@&#@*&@# awesome!” – James “JY” Young, Styx (guitars, vocals)

 

“Yo, wake up everybody!  Winter is over, the snow is melting, the sun is coming out--it's time for the second annual REO, Styx, Nugent springtime extravaganza.  We had so much fun in 2012 we all decided to fire this ‘Midwest Rock 'n Roll Express’ thing up and do it again.  Time to strap on our six strings, pack up the trucks and tour buses, get together with our best rock buddies and go out to have some big fun. See y'all soon.” – Kevin Cronin, REO Speedwagon (vocals, guitars, keyboards)

 

"Blazing vocal melodies and guitars, soaring arrangements steeped in Progressive Rock roots, heart touching ballads you know in your bones, and that's just my DAMN YANKEES brother TED NUGENT I'm talking about!  Wait until STYX and REO take the stage!  You might need to take the next day off after riding this glorious train!” -- Tommy Shaw, Styx (vocals, guitars)

 

“When you live the ultimate American guitar player's dream, with the ultimate grinding band, performing the most intense fun songs in the world to the most enthusiastic audiences alive, every tour and every concert is an indescribable celebration. Styx and REO deserve me. Here we come again baby, like dogs in heat!”  --Ted Nugent
