...that Kevin Cronin of R.E.O. Speedwagon will be doing a virtual halftime show for the U of I homecoming game on December 5th. 

Actually, I just saw it in The News-Gazette.

R.E.O Speedwagon was formed here in C-U in 1967. Cronin became the lead singer a few years later. The band last performed here in 2015
