Plus special guest Charlie Farren REO Speedwagon, fronted by iconic vocalist Kevin Cronin, along with bandmates Bruce Hall (bass), Neal Doughty (keyboards), Dave Amato (guitar) and Bryan Hitt (drums), electrify audiences in concerts worldwide with fan-favorites such as "In Your Letter," "Can't Fight This Feeling," "Time For Me To Fly," "Roll With The Changes," "Keep On Loving You," "Take It On the Run" and many more. Fans in Worcester will enjoy an unforgettable night of classic Midwestern rock n' roll. Formed in 1967, signed in 1971 and fronted by Cronin since 1972, REO Speedwagon's unrelenting drive, as well as non-stop touring and recording jump-started the burgeoning rock movement in the Midwest. Platinum albums and radio staples soon followed, setting the stage for the release of the band's explosive Hi Infidelity in 1980, which contained the massive hit singles "Keep On Loving You," and "Take It On the Run." That landmark album spent 15 weeks in the number one slot and has since earned the RIAA's coveted 10X Diamond Award for surpassing sales of 10 million units in the United States. Today, REO Speedwagon has sold 40 million albums around the globe. Boston rock legend Charlie Farren has long been known for great songs, great singing and outstanding live performances. Currently touring solo acoustic, Farren captures the audience with his unique delivery, insightful lyrics, soaring vocal and distinctively intricate, "full band" guitar style that distinguishes him among the country's elite musical artists. Farren burst onto the national scene in the early '80s as lead singer of The Joe Perry Project, teaming up with Aerosmith lead guitarist Joe Perry and releasing an acclaimed album on Columbia Records. Farren penned the Billboard-charting classics "Listen To The Rock" and "East Coast, West Coast," also co-writing four songs with Perry including the hit "I've Got The Rock 'N' Rolls Again."
