ABC/Byron CohenREO Speedwagon is among the performers confirmed for the premiere of ABC’s new musical tribute show, Greatest Hits, which will air Thursday, June 30, at 9 p.m. ET. The episode will focus on popular songs from 1980 to 1985.

The ’80s rock group will take the stage for two songs — their 1980 chart-topper “Keep on Loving You,” and a duet with rapper Pitbull on a rendition of his recent single “Messin’ Around.” The latter tune is based on the 1980s rock group’s song “Take It on the Run.”

The show also will feature Kenny Loggins singing “Footloose,” Rick Springfield performing “Jessie’s Girl,” Kim Carnes singing “Bette Davis Eyes,” Kool & The Gang playing “Celebration,” Ray Parker Jr. doing “Ghostbusters” and more.

As previously reported, among the many other artists scheduled to perform on Greatest Hits during its six-week run are Chicago, Foreigner, Bonnie Raitt, Wilson Phillips, En Vogue, LL Cool J, Boyz II Men, Backstreet Boys, CeeLo Green and John Legend. The show is co-hosted by Arsenio Hall and country singer Kelsea Ballerini.
