PANAMA.Reo Speedwagon fans, take notice. The famous American rock band which grew in popularity during the 1970s and peaked in the early 1980s, will be performing in Panama City on October 15, 2008 at Atlapa’s Anayansi Theater, delighting ex-pats and Panamanians alike with hits like “Keep on Loving You” and “Can’t Fight This Feeling.”
REO Speedwagon took its name from the REO Speed Wagon, a flatbed truck, manufactured by the REO Motor Car Company. The group was formed by students attending the University of Illinois in Champaign, Illinois in the fall of 1967 to play cover songs in campus bars.
The band’s latest production was a self-financed album released on 2007, however, it continues to perform mostly their 70s and 80s hits at tours.
Kevin Cronin, on his REO Speedwagon website blog, claims the band is sounding better than ever: “sound man Neil Schaeffer has the house mix dialed in, our vocals are in tune as never before, we have tightened up a few ragged edges of some of our instrumental passages.”
This year’s set list includes "Golden Country" and "Son Of A Poor Man", an occasional acoustic version of "Needed to Fall" and "in My Dreams", as well as rare sightings of "Like You Do" and "Building The Bridge".
For those interested, tickets are available at Video Avenue. They range from $25 - $100.
