07.12 Styx, Reo Speedwagon and Ted Nugent Bring “The Midwest Rock ‘N Roll Express” Tour to Mohegan Sun
By Steve Henricksen
So on July 4, we all celebrated the freedom we’re blessed with in the USA by partying with family and friends…but let’s face it, just one day of celebrating is NOT enough…so how can you keep the party going a little longer?
That’s easy ~ head to Mohegan Sun on the 5th and hop on The Midwest Rock ‘N Roll Express. What says good ol’ American freedom more than rock n roll…especially when the Motor City Madman is involved? We can’t think of anything!
Over 80 million albums sold worldwide. 12 Top 10 smash hit singles. Thousands of concerts performed. Legions of fans of all ages. The time has come for the ultimate convergence of rock’s finest from the Midwest: get ready for REO Speedwagon, STYX and Ted Nugent to join forces for “The Midwest Rock ‘n Roll Express” 30-dateU.S.tour.
“Forget all those TV shows with glee clubs singing Rock songs,” saysS TYXguitarist/singer James “JY” Young. “It’s time for mega-Platinum Illinois bands STYXand REO Speedwagon in a battle to the end of the Mayan Calendar with the Motor City Madman!”
“In theMidwest we work hard, play hard, and rock hard. I am proud to join my brothers in STYX and Ted Nugent to celebrate Midwest rock ‘n roll and represent the greatest rock fans in the world. I am ready to climb aboard the ‘Midwest Rock ‘n Roll Express!’
Rock on, Baby!”
As STYX singer/guitarist Tommy Shaw proclaims, “It’s gonna be a Twang Fest of screaming guitars and big, sing-along choruses that continue to be the soundtrack for the misbehavior of our collective fan base. In other words, a real good time.”
Ted Nugent couldn’t agree more. “The heart and soul of American R&B and R&R has always gushed forth from the heartland of America. REO, STYX and The Nuge have always celebrated the power of our special music and on the mighty ‘Midwest Rock ‘n Roll Express,’ the energy, attitude and spirit is more intense than ever. This is the soundtrack for the hardcore.”
Check out “The Midwest Rock ‘n Roll Express” Thursday, July 5 at the Mohegan Sun Arena (and be sure to check out Frank Poulin’s photos of the whole night in our August issue of “Hot Shots” online at www.thepulsemag.com!); showtimes on the 5th are:
