REO Speedwagon concert postponed

The REO Speedwagon show scheduled for Sunday, Jan. 21, at the Deadwood Mountain Grand has been postponed. Lead singer Kevin Cronin announced on Facebook late Wednesday that he’s scheduled for a “routine procedure” that will force the classic rock band to reschedule some concerts. Cronin, 66, said the procedure is not life-threatening, and has been assured by doctors he will be “good as new.” Officials with the Deadwood Mountain Grand said they are working with the band to reschedule a concert date, and will notify all ticket holders once that date has been set. They said ticket holders should hang on to their tickets to the sold-out show. Refunds will be available through the original ticketing outlet. If tickets were purchased through Ticketmaster, contact Ticketmaster at 800-745-3000. If tickets were purchased through the Deadwood Mountain Grand Company Store, call 559-1188.
