REO Speedwagon and Styx appeared at the Colorado Springs World Arena on Monday, October 3, 2005. I was privileged to attend and took a few pictures. I'm not sure why it took me this long to get a page up since the pictures have been edited and ready for a long time.

REO Speedwagon performed first.
