NORMAL, Ill. (AP) -- The classic rock band REO Speedwagon will perform this summer at Illinois State University as part of the "Rock to the Rescue" program to benefit victims of Midwest tornados and storms.
With chart-topping hits such as "Roll with the Changes" and "Keep on Loving You," REO will perform June 27 at Braden Auditorium at ISU in Normal. Rick Derringer and The Easthills will open for REO.
Portions of the proceeds from the concert will benefit Rock to the Rescue. The charity has raised $400,000 for Midwest storm victims.
There will also be memorabilia and instrument auctions at the show.
Kevin Cronin is frontman for the group that was founded in Illinois in 1967. He says upcoming shows in Chicago, Effingham and Muncie, Ind., will also help the fund.
