Four big acts in five nights at Luhrs Center

Four chart-topping acts will take the stage at H. Ric Luhrs Performing Arts Center in Shippensburg, Pa., during a five-night span in mid-September.

REO Speedwagon - Wednesday, Sept. 18

Formed in 1967, signed in 1971, and fronted by iconic vocalist Kevin Cronin since 1972, REO Speedwagon’s unrelenting drive, as well as non-stop touring and recording jump-started the burgeoning rock movement in the Midwest. Platinum albums and radio staples soon followed, setting the stage for the release of the band’s explosive Hi Infidelity in 1980, which contained the massive hit singles “Keep On Loving You,” and “Take It On the Run.” That landmark album spent 15 weeks in the No. 1 slot and has since earned the RIAA’s coveted 10X Diamond Award for surpassing sales of 10 million units in the United States.

Today, REO Speedwagon has sold 40 million albums around the globe, and Cronin and bandmates Bruce Hall (bass), Neal Doughty (keyboards), Dave Amato (guitar), and Bryan Hitt (drums) are still electrifying audiences worldwide in concert with hits and fan-favorites such as “In Your Letter,” “Can’t Fight This Feeling,” “Time For Me To Fly,” “Roll With The Changes,” the aforementioned “Keep On Loving You” and  “Take It On the Run,” and many, many more.

Collective Soul - Sunday, Sept. 22

Collective Soul is pumped and primed to celebrate its twenty-fifth anniversary in all-out style.
Ever since the barn-burning rock band burst onto the national scene with the success of their multi-platinum 1993 debut Hints Allegations and Things Left Unsaid and mega-hits like "Shine" and "Breathe," they’ve been on an upward trajectory, playing to sold-out audiences across the globe.

Memorable tracks like "December" and "The World I Know" made Collective Soul the jukebox heroes of a new generation. The secret to the band’s success is a palpable mixture of insightful songwriting and impeccable band chemistry. Collective Soul’s newest album, Blood, is the culmination of the band’s journey. Heaven has clearly shined its light down on Collective Soul for twenty-five years running with no end in sight.
