Westbury - On Sunday, April 14, REO Speedwagon headlined The Theatre at Westbury on Long Island, where they played in the round. Digital Journal has the scoop.
An iconic rock group, REO Speedwagon began their show on a high-octane note with "Don't Let Him Go," where they instantly lured the audience in their set. They continued with "Music Man" and "In Your Letter." Lead singer Kevin Cronin interacted well with the New York audience that gathered on a Sunday evening to see them at this intimate venue.
Their highlight song from the first portion of their concert was their signature ballad "Can't Fight This Feeling," which earned a tremendous response from the audience, and rightfully so. They immediately broke into "Tough Guys" and "Son of a Poor Man," prior to performing yet another classic hit "Take It on the Run," where everybody was singing along with them.
For their encore, REO Speedwagon returned to the Westbury stage to perform the fan-favorite "Keep On Loving You," which received a standing ovation, as well as "Roll With the Changes."
The Verdict
Overall, tonight's show at Westbury was a highlight reel as to why REO Speedwagon deserves to be inducted in the coveted Rock and Roll Hall of Fame at a future ceremony. Their songs have stood the test of time, and their audience was comprised of a wide demographic, which spanned several generations of fans.
This journalist has seen this band perform live a total of 18 times, and it is evident that their concerts are consistently excellent each time, and they allow all of the members in their band to shine as a whole: Cronin nailed the vocals, Bryan Hitt rocked the drums, while Bruce Hall was all about the bass; moreover, equally impressive were Neal Doughty on the keyboards and Dave Amato on lead guitar. Their live concert at The Theatre at Westbury garnered an A rating.
