If you were a 15-year old rocker in 1982, this would have been the Greatest News Ever!
STYX, FOREIGNER and The Eagles’ DON FELDER have announced they are teaming up for a 2014 summer tour. Okay, so their original lead singers are long gone, and Felder’s not exactly going to show up onstage with The Eagles anytime soon. But what remains are the hits – lots of ’em – and the high-octane rock shows! And let’s face it, this evening of old school rock and roll does sound like a blast!
OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE:
Combined, they’ve sold over 250 million albums worldwide. They’ve had 36 #1 and Top 10 smash hit singles that are still being spun on Classic Rock radio over 500,000 times every year. They’ve performed thousands of concerts worldwide to countless crowds. Now it’s time for three of the most legendary names in rock to come together for a massive U.S. Summer tour.
STYX and FOREIGNER, with very special guest DON FELDER (former Eagles guitarist/songwriter) will join forces for the “The Soundtrack of Summer” (#thesoundtrackofsummer) three-month U.S. trek, which will kick-off May 16 in Oklahoma City, OK at the Zoo Amphitheatre. Tickets for various cities go on sale starting February 7. Fans can check out the tour’s official website, www.soundtrackofsummer.com, for info about all three acts, ticket on-sale dates, and more shows that will be announced in the coming weeks.
“The addition of Don Felder to ‘The Soundtrack of Summer’ tour means that the combined album sales of all 3 acts, as well as all the bands they were once members of, is well north of 100 million worldwide,” declares STYX guitarist/singer James “JY” Young. “Certainly by this yardstick, ‘The Soundtrack of Summer’ has got to easily be in the Top Ten three-act concert tours to ever hit the road. ‘Renegade’ ‘Juke Box Heroes’ partying at the ‘Hotel California’ will be your slammin’ soundtrack of a rockin’ hot summer!!! What more could you ask for after this crazy cold winter we are having???”
