REO SPEEDWAGON & PAT BENATAR CO-HEADLINING SUMMER TOUR

Two acts that were regulars on the charts in the early '80s, REO Speedwagon and Pat Benatar, will join forces for a summer co-headlining tour dubbed "Love On The Run."

Beginning June 24 in Uncasville, CT, the tour will hit the road for a slate of summer shows that so far includes 21 cities from coast to coast. The itinerary, which includes a July 13 show in Wichita, KS and is currently scheduled to conclude Aug. 27 in Gilford, NH, will expand when additional tour stops are announced in the coming weeks.

Edwin McCain and Keaton Simons will trade off providing opening support on the trek.

"Both REO Speedwagon and Pat Benatar share a history of hits, a family-oriented approach, and a continuing desire to rock hard and have fun doing it," REO Speedwagon lead singer Kevin Cronin stated in a recent press release. "We embrace and take pride in our past achievements, while we are all about growing as artists and keeping our standards high. We intend to prove it every night on stage with the 'Love On The Run' tour."

REO continues to support 2007's "Find Your Own Way Home," which marked the band's first collection of new material in more than a decade. The 10-track set, billed as a return to the power-ballad/melodic-rock-anthem glory days, has spawned the adult-contemporary hits "I Needed To Fall" and the title track.

"Go," Benatar's most recent release and 12th studio effort, surfaced in 2003. The album peaked at No. 187 on The Billboard 200. Last summer, Benatar celebrated the 30th anniversary of her 1979 debut album, "In the Heat of the Night." The set received platinum certification in the US and its third single, "Heartbreaker," became Benatar's first radio hit, climbing to No. 23 on The Billboard Hot 100.
