Rock band REO Speedwagon will be returning to the New York State Fair this year to play at the Experience Stage in Chevy Park on August 28th at 8:00 p.m.

The band’s Hi Infidelity album, which featured hit singles “Keep On Loving You” and “Take It On the Run,” spent 15 weeks in the Number 1 spot in 1980. With more than 40 million albums sold, REO Speedwagon has established itself as a classic rock staple.


“REO Speedwagon’s timeless collection is catchy, and fun to sing along to. The band’s hits teach us so many life lessons too! From how to ‘Live Every Moment,’ and ‘Roll with the Changes,’ to how to ‘Ride the Storm Out,’ and ‘Keep On Loving You,’ audiences will be loving them right back as they sing along and dance their way through the evening,” said Interim Fair Director Sean Hennessey.

Admission to the fair is required to attend the performance, which is free of charge. The fair will run from August 23rd through Labor Day.
