After making music for over 50 years, REO SPEEDWAGON shows no signs of slowing down. Unlike some of their peers, REO Speedwagon is still able to put on electrifying and energetic shows night after night. Frontman Kevin Cronin is clearly not your average 70-year-old. The iconic arena rockers played for fans at the Owensboro Sportscenter in 2021, and they will soon do the same here in Evansville.

How Can I Win Tickets?

That's a great question, and I happen to have an equally great answer. Liberty and I managed to get ahold of some more tickets that we will be giving away each morning for the next week. In order to have a chance to win a pair, you need to listen for the Most Totally Awesome Radio contest each day at 7am. Call 812-421-1117 and play along with whatever ridiculous game we have going, and you could be our winner. We will give away those tickets from 2/9-2/15.
