On Friday, September 29, 2017 Morongo Casino Resort will welcome the popular band from the 1970s and 1980s, REO Speedwagon for an evening of hits and fun, as we get up to date on what they have been doing in recent years. Morongo is such a beautiful venue and a perfect place to spend the weekend and enjoy gaming, fine dining, and of course one of their great headliner shows. Just minutes away from Palm Springs, it is one of the favorites of the Coachella Valley.
REO Speedwagon hails from Champaign, Illinois and was formed in 1967. Their best-selling album was the 1980 Hi Infidelity which spawned four top 40 hits and sold over 10 million copies. Over the course of their career they have sold more than 40 million records and had a whopping 13 Top 40 hits including the iconic Keep on Loving You, Can’t Fight This Feeling, Take It On The Run, In Your Letter, and Don’t Let Him Go.
Subsequent albums included Good Trouble in 1982, and Wheels Are Turnin’ in 1984. In 1985 their United States tour sold out all across the country as they collaborated with other stars such as The Beach Boys to thrill audiences everywhere. In 1987 their album Life As We Know It spawned two top 20 hits including That Ain’t Love and In My Dreams. Later compilation albums included all of their top Billboard Charting Hits.
In more recent years REO has done benefit concerts with Styx entitled Rock to the Rescue to raise money for the victims of the tornadoes in Central Illinois during 2013, joined Richard Marx on stage for a joint performance of two of his hits, teamed up with Chicago for a tour, and in 2016 teamed up with Def Leppard and Tesla for another tour. Also in 2016, the band performed Messin’ Around with Pitbull live on TV followed by a UK arena circuit tour with Status Quo in December 2016.
It is safe to say this wonderful band still has a substantial following among dedicated fans and a whole new generation who are learning to love and appreciate them as all of us did. This fall concert is just ahead of our active season in the Coachella Valley with plenty more great concerts and events planned throughout the rest of the year. Don’t miss a nostalgic evening with REO Speedwagon on September 29 at the luxurious Morongo Casino Resort. Make it a great week and we look forward to seeing you soon.
