The Night Reo Speedwagon and Styx Invaded Bismarck
Sorry it's late but it took a day for me to recover ... Here's an official recap of the show.
So last Wednesday the big show rolled into town and having seen my share of concerts over my lifetime, I have to admit I was a bit skeptical, and boy was I wrong.
Don Felder formerly of the Eagles opened and luckily he wrote a lot of their hits because he performed them for like an hour, which was a great surprise. After he left us standing up for what seemed like 20 minutes, Reo hit the stage and jumped right into Don't let him Go, In your letter, and Keep pushing back to back. Then Kevin the lead singer told a great story on how they played one of their first gigs in Minot which was pretty sincere and then they rolled into Can't fight this feeling, pretty magical. They ended their set covering Tom Petty's Listen to her heart to a standing ovation. If you want to see their entire set-list here it is on Set list.fm.
Then came the Headliner - Styx ! Blue Collar Man was their second song and they covered all their hits including a pretty awesome cover of Queen's Bohemian Rhapsody.Their 2 song encore was great as well finishing up with a nice version of Renegade. The only downside of the show was that it was on a Wednesday and I had to go to work the next day ! Here's Styx's Set-list as well on Set list.fm.
All and all a very solid show for the United We Rock Tour !
