Chicago and REO Speedwagon are set to unite for a co-headlining tour, launching June 13 in Concord, CA.

“We love the Chicago guys. We all share that Midwest rock’ n roll ethic. We work hard, rock hard & take care of business,” REO Speedwagon frontman Kevin Cronin said in a press statement. “So, c’mon out and party with Chicago and REO this summer.”

“It’s always a party sharing the stage with Kevin, Neal, Bruce, Dave and Bryan!” added Chicago’s Robert Lamm. “They rock. We rock. The tour rocks!”

Old-school Chicago fans are in for something special, as the band will perform Chicago II in its entirety, followed by the “world’s longest encore”—a second set of greatest hits.

REO Speedwagon will also roll out a greatest hits set, spanning the band’s extensive catalog.
