The sellout crowd at Tuesday's concert at the Virginia Theatre enjoyed the performance of both ZZ Top and the band's promoter.

PETER KERNAN took the stage to announce that hometown favorites REO Speedwagon would be returning to the Virginia on Feb. 8.

"It was one of those 'ooh and ahh' moments," Virginia Theatre director STEVEN BENTZ said. "You could feel the electricity."

The concert will begin at 7:30 p.m., and tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. Oct. 20. Other details — like ticket prices — aren't finalized because Kernan spilled the beans earlier than anyone expected. Expect an update from the Virginia later this week.

REO last played the Virginia in 2015. Afterward, the group returned to one of its favorite campus haunts — the Red Lion — and jammed there, too.
