The members of REO Speedwagon gathered together Thursday afternoon on the roof of the Sony building in New York City where they were presented with a Diamond Award by the Recording Industry Association of America for their 1980 album, Hi Infidelity, selling 10 million units in the U.S.
Hi Infidelity spent 15 weeks at number-one on the Billboard album chart, and among its hit singles were “Keep on Loving You,” which topped the charts, “Take it on the Run,” which peaked at number-five, and "Don't Let Him Go" at number-24.
REO are down to the last four shows of their United We Rock tour with Styx and Don Felder -- Niagara Falls, New York tonight; Syracuse, New York on Saturday; Bangor, Maine on Sunday; and the finale on Tuesday in Holmdel, New Jersey.
