Our thoughts and prayers go out to the people affected by yesterday's devastating tornado in Oklahoma. Having played there many times over years we've seen both the heart and fortitude of the people of OK & we know that they will bounce back stronger than ever. To help with that recovery, we've contributed to the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma, and ask our fans to do the same. Please give whatever you can via the Web at

While I'm so thankful that my family and friends in OKC are safe, my heart is breaking for those that have suffered such great loss. When we are asked "where is your favorite place to play"? The Zoo Amp is always on that list. Oklahoma has stood by REO Speedwagon for 40 years and now we will stand by Oklahoma as they continue to Ride this Storm Out, re-build and come back stronger. If you are able, please donate to the Red Cross disaster relief fund.
