Keeping within federal touring rules and regs calling for quotes from each act when announcing a concert run this size, our first statement comes from Styx guitarist/vocalist James “JY” Young.

“Due to the overwhelming success of last year’s tour, we are going to once again wind up the juggernaut of mega-tainment,” Young said.  “Styx, REO and the Motor City Madman: there aren’t enough expletives in my vocabulary to explain how great this is … but I’ll try.  This is going to be *$&#@*&@# awesome!”

“Yo, wake up everybody!  Winter is over, the snow is melting, the sun is coming out – it’s time for the second annual REO, Styx, Nugent springtime extravaganza,” REO Speedwagon’s Kevin Cronin said.  “We had so much fun in 2012, we all decided to fire this ‘Midwest Rock ’N’ Roll Express’ thing up and do it again.  Time to strap on our six strings, pack up the trucks and tour buses, get together with our best rock buddies and go out to have some big fun.  See y’all soon.”

“When you live the ultimate American guitar player’s dream, with the ultimate grinding band, performing the most intense fun songs in the world to the most enthusiastic audiences alive, every tour and every concert is an indescribable celebration,” Nugent said.  “Styx and REO deserve me.  Here we come again baby, like dogs in heat!”
