REO Speedwagon Celebrates Their 50th Anniversary in Music

It seems unbelievable, but in just a few years REO SPEEDWAGON will celebrate its 50th anniversary in music. The band that brought audiences the No. 1 mega hits “Keep On Loving You,” “Can’t Fight This Feeling Anymore,” and a string of Top 40 favorites continues to electrify concert stages worldwide.

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. REO (named after the precursor to the light truck) rode to gigs in station wagons, hopping from small gigs to even tinier gigs, just to get their name out.

While REO SPEEDWAGON had released eight albums prior, it was 1980s ‘High Infidelity’ that catapulted the rock group into music history. The collection stayed on the charts for 65 weeks and sold 10 million copies. Hits included “Keep On Loving You” and No. 5 “Take It on the Run.” Their follow-up, ‘Good Trouble’ (1982) featured the iconic “Can’t Fight This Feeling.” Other memorable hits are “Roll With the Changes” (1977), “Time for Me to Fly” (1978), “I Needed to Fall” (2007) and “Smilin’ In The End”(2007).

This is the last concert at Robinson Auditorium in downtown Little Rock before the major renovations begin. There are still some other events scheduled for Robinson Auditorium this year.
