STYX, REO SPEEDWAGON AND LOVERBOY ARE SET TO JOIN FORCES NEXT SUMMER FOR THE LIVE & UNZOOMED TOUR

The trek will hit 35 cities beginning on May 31 in Grand Rapids, Mich. and is presently set to wrap on Aug. 21 in Wantagh, N.Y. Tickets go on sale Dec. 10. You can see the complete list of tour dates below.

“Three years ago, none of us knew what Zoom was,” Styx's Lawrence Gowan said with a laugh in an exclusive interview with UCR. “It was just a word I remember using as a kid about a car that’s going fast. I got a call from the office saying, ‘We’re going to do a Zoom call’ and I went, ‘What the hell is that?’”

 

A humorous video announcing the tour, which you can watch below, finds Styx’s Tommy Shaw and REO Speedwagon’s Kevin Cronin catching up on their activities away from the road. Loverboy’s Mike Reno intermittently joins the conversation, in a fashion that feels very much like “zoombombing.”
 

Cronin tells UCR the upcoming dates are “very special,” pointing to a 20-year touring relationship shared by REO and Styx. “You throw Loverboy in, and that just brings it over the top.”


Echoing Cronin’s comments, Reno told UCR in a separate conversation that he’s thrilled to mount Loverboy’s first full tour since the pandemic began. “We’re so ready to get back on the road. It’s going to be a blast.”
 

The three groups come armed with an impressive arsenal of classic-rock favorites, but also have current projects as well. Styx will continue to highlight material from Crash of the Crown, their 2021 studio album. Reno says Loverboy has new music in the works, while Cronin is hoping to have his much-discussed memoir out to coincide with the tour.
