About the bands:

The Counting Crows exploded onto the music scene in 1993 with the multi-platinum breakout album “August and Everything After.”  The band has since released seven studio albums, selling more than 20 million records worldwide.

The Wallflowers has been led for the past 30 years by founding singer, songwriter, and guitarist Jakob Dylan.  The band released “Exit Wounds” in July 2021, marking its first new material in nine years.

REO Speedwagon was formed in 1967, and fronted by iconic vocalist Kevin Cronin since 1972, REO is best known for its explosive 1980 album “Hi Infidelity,” which spent 15 weeks at #1.  The album was fueled by massive hit singles, including “Keep on Loving You,” and “Take it on the Run.”

Styx draws from more than four decades of barn-burning chart hits, joyous singalongs, and hard-driving deep cuts, including “Blue Collar Man,” Lady,” and “Come Sail Away.”
