Classic rock fans will have an opportunity to tap into a recession-relieving concert with the 2009 Can't Stop Rockin' tour, featuring REO Speedwagon, Styx and 38 Special. Ticket prices will be available for as low as $13.50 in most markets.
Presented by VH! Classic and Rock Band, the tour begins May 13 in Albuquerque, N.M. In acknowledgement of the tour, Styx and REO Speedwagon teamed up to record a new single, “Can’t Stop Rockin’,” co-written by REO Speedwagon’s Kevin Cronin and Styx’s Tommy Shaw. “Can’t Stop Rockin’” makes its radio debut in March and will be available for download.
In a prepared statement, Shaw called the tour a 'rock 'n roll stimulus package." REO and Styx toured together nine years ago on the Arch Allies tour. Tickets will be on sale through a variety of outlets, including Ticketmaster, tickets.com and livenation.com, depending on the date. American Express early onsales opportunities will be available for most tour dates.
