Styx And REO To Play Illinois Tornado Benefit
Two Illinois rock groups will return to their stomping grounds to benefit those who had losses in last week's tornadoes.
Rock groups Styx and REO Speedwagon will headline a benefit concert to raise money for victims of last weekend's Illinois tornadoes.
The bands, which both have strong Illinois ties, will headline the event called ``Rock to the Rescue Extends a Hand to Those in Need.'' The concert will be held at Bloomington's U.S. Cellular Coliseum on Dec. 4
Tickets go on sale Saturday and cost between $28 and $58.
Styx guitarist James Young and REO Speedwagon guitarist and singer Kevin Cronin are both Illinois natives.
