Hey, soul sisters: Train and REO Speedwagon announced a co-headlining 2024 tour, and Phoenix is on the schedule.

The two popular rock bands will appear at Talking Stick Resort Amphitheatre in west Phoenix on Sept. 11.

“When I was younger I heard a band called REO Speedwagon and fell in love with their numerous, infectious hit songs," Train frontman Pat Monahan said in the tour announcement. "Years later I met Kevin Cronin, and thank goodness he’s as great a person as he is a songwriter. This tour won’t just be a great time with great people, but a tour that will have a ton of familiar songs to most generations. I will be wishing I was in the audience as much as I’ll love being on the stage.”

REO Speedwagon’s Kevin Cronin said, “Pat Monahan and I have done several benefit shows over the years, and now we get to take out our bands for a summer full of music and fun. I love the idea of bringing together people of all ages, who share a common love for well-crafted songs and high-energy live performances. The REO boys are stoked about this tour.”
