Styx and REO Speedwagon - Arch Allies Live At Riverport

Year of Release: 2000
Label: Sanctuary Records Group
Catalog Number: 88310
Format: DVD
Total Time: 100:00:00

Arch Allies Live At Riverport is one of the finest representations of two classic rock groups, Styx and REO Speedwagon. I can vouch for that as I have seen both bands in concert twice. Actually, this past summer I saw them perform together on ?The Main Event? tour.

If you have been looking for a memento of concerts by these bands or have never had the pleasure of seeing them live this is the next best thing to being there.

The best footage is when both bands come together onstage for ?Blue Collar Man? and ?Roll With the Changes,? both classic rock staples and big audience pleasers.

This is a no frills show and the DVD has no bonus features, its REO and Styx straight up, and that is exactly as both bands would probably want it.
