Los Angeles, CA – Feb. 26, 2013 - Palladia and REO Speedwagon are proud to announce the television debut of the band’s hit-filled performance from the country’s premier classic rock festival, Moondance Jam. Palladia, Viacom's high-definition music channel, will debut REO Speedwagon’s “Live at Moondance Jam” on Saturday, March 2 at 6:00 pm PST/9:00 pm EST. The channel will air the program six additional times, including March 2 at midnight, March 3 at 3:30 pm, March 5 at 10:30 pm, March 6 at 12:30 pm, March 10 at 4:30 am and March 13 at 1:30am (all times ET).

Formed in 1967, signed in 1971, and fronted by iconic vocalist Kevin Cronin since 1972, REO Speedwagon has rocked to the top of the charts with a RIAA-certified 22 million albums sold in the U.S., 40 million around the globe, and a string of gold and platinum records. The group’s nine-times certified platinum Hi Infidelity spent 15 weeks in the #1 slot. Thirty–plus years later, Cronin and bandmates Bruce Hall (bass), Neal Doughty (keyboards), Dave Amato (lead guitar) and Bryan Hitt (drums) keep thrilling concert audiences with fan favorites such as “Keep On Loving You,” “Can’t Fight This Feeling,” and “Take It On the Run.” In addition to featuring those three smash hits, “Live at Moondance Jam” —recorded at the Walker, Minnesota festival in the summer of 2010— features “Don’t Let Him Go,” “Keep Pushin’,” “Golden Country,” “Like You Do,” “Time For Me To Fly,” “Back On The Road Again,” and “Roll With The Changes.”
“Live at Moondance Jam,” the first high-definition REO Speedwagon concert, is available for purchase on DVD and Blu-ray here. In addition to 13 songs, including all the aforementioned tracks, the package features an exclusive interview with Kevin Cronin.
After seeing REO Speedwagon on TV, fans can go out and see them live this spring. Last year’s “Midwest Rock ‘n Roll Express” tour was recognized by Rolling Stone as one of the “Ten Hottest Summer Package Tours of 2012.” It was such a success that rock’s finest from the heartland —REO Speedwagon, Styx and Ted Nugent—are teaming up again for another round of shows. The tour starts on April 18 in Grand Forks, ND and will hit more than 20 cities before wrapping in Burgettstown, PA a month later. REO will then continue with headlining tour dates and festival shows throughout the summer.
