The “Live & UnZoomed Tour” made its way to Utah on Saturday, July 9. REO Speedwagon and Styx have been playing co-headlining tours for years. This time they would be joined by special guest, Loverboy. I’d imagine this night at USANA Amphitheatre will be a memorable one. First off, it was HOT! We’re talking triple digits folks. On top of the extreme heat, there was a massive fire just on the other side of the western mountain range. The smokey air added a new element to the outdoor concert experience. Despite the unique conditions, fans showed up in droves to see some of their favorite bands. Styx and REO Speedwagon are regular visitors to Utah, and every time they come their shows do well. This night was no exception.
Legendary and multi-Platinum rockers Styx have hit the road with their friends REO Speedwagon on their Live and UnZoomed Tour. They’ll be joined by special guests, Loverboy. The tour stops off at USANA Amphitheatre on Saturday, July 9. We had the opportunity to catch up with Vocalist and Keyboardist, Lawrence Gowan a few weeks back.

UCR: As you know, Utah loves having you guys out here. You’re back out on the road with REO Speedwagon. Do you determine by tour who closes the show? Or is it a show by show decision?
