ROCKFORD, Ill. (WIFR) - REO Speedwagon announces the postponement of their Jan. 24 concert at the Coronado Performing Arts Center due to a minor illness.

“Hi friends, there are times in life when our bodies send us messages that we can’t ignore & this is one of those times. Fortunately for me, it is nothing life-threatening. I need a routine procedure, which is so simple it can be performed by a robot. R2D2 is busy saving the universe, but I understand there is another highly qualified robotic surgeon who works out of Cedars-Sinai Hospital here in Los Angeles. My doctor says I will be good as new. I am deeply disappointed that I have to ask the greatest fans in rock ’n roll to change their plans. All I can do is ask for your understanding and I truly appreciate your support. The new dates will be announced as soon as possible... Much love, kc," says vocalist Kevin Cronin.

The Coronado says tickets for the Jan. 24 concert will be honored for the new date and refunds are available at point of purchase.
