REO Speedwagon coming to Muncie

MUNCIE - New Covenant Productions proudly presents chart-topping, classic rock band, REO Speedwagon live in concert at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 7, at Emens Auditorium in Muncie, located at 1800 West Riverside Avenue.The show at Emens Auditorium will feature a hit-filled set boasting such fan-favorites such as “Keep On Loving You,” “Can’t Fight This Feeling,” “Roll with the Changes” and “Take It On the Run” and many more.

Tickets are on sale now at the Emens Auditorium box office, all Ticketmaster outlets, charge-by-phone at (800) 745-3000 or online at Ticketmaster.com.

The upcoming REO Speedwagon shows in Rosemont, Ill., (1/18); Normal, Ill., (2/6); Muncie (2/7); and Effingham, Ill., (2/8) will all have charity involvement to benefit Rock To The Rescue. Rock To The Rescue recently raised more than $400,000 to benefit victims of the Midwest tornadoes and storms. At these shows, a portion of proceeds will benefit the charity; plus, the band will hold memorabilia and instrument raffles or auctions, and donations will be accepted. The charity will distribute funds raised from this performance to Midwest Food Bank, Peoria Citizens Committee for Economic Opportunity, Tazwood Community Services, Toys for Tots and the Washington Community Bank in care of City of Washington Tornado Relief Fund.

REO Speedwagon’s Kevin Cronin said, "When we visited the site of the devastating Illinois tornadoes on the day of our benefit concert in December we asked Mayor Gary Manier of Washington, IL what else we could do to help. He didn't hesitate, “˜Please don't forget about us,’ was his impassioned response. The rebuilding process is estimated to last up to three years, so our work in supporting our Illinois brothers and sisters is just beginning. We are committed to continue contributing time, energy and money long into the future, and as such our upcoming shows in Chicago, Normal, Effingham, and Muncie, will add to our Rock to the Rescue benefit effort. We are an Illinois band, the people of Illinois are our people”¦when they need us we are there."
