Listen to Chicago on iHeartRadio | Listen to REO Speedwagon on iHeartRadio

Chicago and REO Speedwagon will be hitting the road together.  The groups have announced 15 dates, with shows expected to be added. 

As it stands, the bands will launch their collaborative road trip in Phoenix, Arizona on August 2nd, and wrap up the run in Dallas, Texas on August 31st. 

In addition to playing their own sets, Chicago's Robert Lamm says the groups will team up for the encore, and "present a finale that will thrill" audiences.  He adds that he's looking forward to their upcoming rehearsals. 

REO's Kevin Cronin says he and his bandmates are "psyched" about the trek, but as much as they're looking forward to the shows, "the audience is the ultimate winner."  Tickets go on sale to the general public for most dates starting Friday.
