What a trip down memory lane this is going to be at DTE Energy Music Theater in 2022. REO Speedwagon and STYX have announced their LIVE & UNZOOMED Tour along with special guests LOVERBOY for 2022. The tour kicks off in Grand Rapids, MI at the Van Andel Arena on May 31. Michigan will be treated to two shows on this tour, the other stop will be in Clarkston, MI. at DTE on June 8, surely to sell out like past stops here in the great lakes state. The 80’s rock we all came to love will be on display bringing back high school memories, backyard hangouts, and driving with the top down cranking out your favorite jam. Speaking of a trip down memory lane my very first concert was REO Speedwagon back in 1981 in downtown Detroit and to this day two songs still standout “Ridin the Storm Out” and “Keep on Loving You”

Some thoughts expressed about the upcoming tour:
Styx’s Tommy Shaw agrees, “I can’t think of a better way of touring the USA next year than with good friends we’ve known for years and performed with on many a stage. What a great night of music this will be!”
REO Speedwagon’s Kevin Cronin said, “Tommy (Shaw) and I have done a number of Zoom performances together during the pandemic, and REO and Styx are ready to go get UnZoomed, and out on the road for our fifth U.S. tour together. Add our great friends Mike Reno and the Loverboy guys, and I am totally psyched. If I wasn’t performing in it, I would totally come out to see this show. See you all, LIVE and UNZOOMED!”
Loverboy’s Mike Reno proclaimed, “We can’t wait to take the stage and rock this summer, it’s gonna be awesome. These are all the groups I grew up with, and I’m there too. Best tour of the summer…guaranteed.”
Don’t be that person and miss this event mark those calendars, have SIRI remind you, tape a sticky note to your car windshield, whatever it takes be sure to grab your tickets early.
