Three heavyweights of the classic rock realm will join forces this summer for the United We Rock tour.
Each night, fans will be treated to hit after hit from Styx, REO Speedwagon and Don Felder (formerly of the Eagles) — making up one of the most formidable summer concert tours around.
As far as tour announcement videos are concerned, you’d be hard-pressed to find one more amusing than this video released on Thursday featuring Styx’s Tommy Shaw, REO Speedwagon’s Kevin Cronin and Felder:

Perhaps unsurprisingly given the general mood of this tour, the musicians’ official statements about the trek are also quite amusing. Said Cronin:
“I called up Tommy Shaw last summer and we were both thinking the same thing: let’s get the boys together, make some music, and have some fun. REO Speedwagon and Styx together is a head first plunge into the fountain of youth, an unstoppable force of nature. Add the amazing Don Felder to the mix and it’s a thundering slam dunk!”
and Felder:
“I’m so excited to be spending the summer on tour with my good friends STYX and REO.  It’s going to be a ‘ROCKING’ summer filled with hit after hit and tons of fun for everyone. Come on out and party, dance and sing with us this summer.  It’s going to be a blast.”
and James “JY” Young:
“FORGET POLITICS!!! Since music is the universal language, Styx, REO Speedwagon and Don Felder have a SHOUT OUT TO THE UNIVERSE!!! UNITED WE ROCK!!!  At a venue near you this summer!!!”
