Last night, September 27, REO Speedwagon frontman, Kevin Cronin, rocked Broadway with the band's classic hit Can't Fight This Feeling (backed by ROA's band Arsenal) and was joined by all of REO Speedwagon for a Q & A immediately following the evening performance of ROCK OF AGES. The post-show performance/Q & A was free and open to that evening's ticket holders only. BroadwayWorld was on hand and brings you photo coverage of the Cronin's cameo below!
The music that ignited a generation is heating up Broadway in ROCK OF AGES. The classic rock love story of the decade erupts into Broadway's best party, all to the sounds of such feel-good, sing-out-loud songs as Every Rose Has Its Thorn, I Wanna Know What Love Is, Here I Go Again, Don't Stop Believin' and more. This hilarious five-time Tony nominated musical is nothin' but a good time.
