REO Speedwagon celebrates a speedy event!
REO Speedwagon is speeding its way onto the lineup at this year’s 500 Festival in Indianapolis. Indiana TV station WISH-TV reports that the band will headline the 2011 Regions 500 Festival Snakepit Ball next month. The gala is part of the 500 Festival, an annual event that celebrates the Indianapolis 500 auto race. REO Speedwagon’s appearance at the Ball is scheduled for May 28th. Until then, the rockers are on the road at North American venues. They’ll play live next at Tropicana Field in Saint Petersburg, Florida on April 30th. That show is part of the Tampa Bay Rays Summer Concert Series.
