We can’t fight this feeling anymore — we can’t wait for REO Speedwagon’s 2023 Tour.
The seminal ’80s rockers are currently midway through their nationwide concert tour that will take them and their timeless anthems all over North America from January through August.
This time around, they’ll bring the hits you know and love to venues as far-ranging as Las Vegas to Puerto Rico.
And while it may seem like business as usual — we certainly expect the group to bust out the hits like “Can’t Fight This Feeling,” “Take It On The Run” and “Keep On Loving You” — one major component is changing.
For the first time in 35 years, keyboardist and founding member Neal Doughty will sit out this run of shows.
“I want everyone to know that it was all that traveling that finally got to me,” Doughty shared on the band’s official Instagram. “I always enjoyed playing the shows and looking out to see all the loyal fans who allowed me to do this for so long.”
So, if you want to see who will take his place — or if he surprises audiences by showing up — you can by snagging tickets now.
If you act fast, you might just score a great deal too.
In fact, we found some tickets going for as low as $38 before fees on Vivid Seats at the time of publication.

REO Speedwagon special guests
When you see REO on the road, it won’t just be Kevin Cronin and co. at your show.
The classic rockers have lined up an eclectic list of performers set to open for them on the road.
Here’s what you need to know about their support acts that just might be at the concert you attend.
Sir, Please, a funky, Agoura Hills-based quartet, features Kevin Cronin’s sons Shane (lead singer, piano) and Josh (bass, background vocals) with two of their best friends. Listen closely enough to their laid-back tropical pop sound and you’ll hear REO’s influence.
John Waite was the lead singer for the Babys and Bad English but most likely you know him from his smash single “Missing You.” Most recently, he dropped his tenth studio album “Rough & Tumble” in 2011.
Levon isn’t quite what one would expect on an REO show — they’re a country band. However, they buck expectations by emulating The Eagles and Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young which makes them a perfect fit for the tour.
Chris Trapper‘s music might sound familiar if you saw the films “There’s Something About Mary” or “The Devil Wears Prada.” The American singer-songwriter has lent his music to a number of movies and TV shows over the years. His most recent album “Cold Water Waltz” was released in October 2020.
’80s groups on tour in 2023
Time really flies.
Blink and the ’80s were somehow over 30 years ago.
Thankfully, many of the greatest artists from the decade are still hoofin’ it around the country this year.
Here are just five of our favorites you won’t want to miss in the next few months.
• Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band
