REO Speedwagon, Styx, and Ted Nugent at Funshine Music Festival
Funshine Music Festival smuggles arena legends REO Speedwagon, Styx, and Ted Nugent to the stage with an inestimable wealth of sing-along classics. Styx has sparked the third rail since 1972 with prog-rock sensationalism, bolstering lighter-fluid epics such as “Come Sail Away” and “Babe” with complex riffs from crystalline synthesizers intertwined with power-chord crescendos and noodling from guitar giant Tommy Shaw. With founding frontman and falsetto specialist Kevin Cronin at the helm, fellow Prairie State juggernaut REO Speedwagon fills the stage with passionate chartbusters that made waterbed salesmen rich, from romantic ballads such as “Keep on Loving You” to the spurned-lover kiss-off “Take It on the Run.” “Motor City Madman” and expert game hunter Ted Nugent revs his buzzsaw guitar through classics such as “Cat Scratch Fever” and “Stranglehold,” all while protecting the audience from wild boars.
