REO Speedwagon at Effingham Performance Center

Back by popular demand, REO Speedwagon will roll into Effingham for a hit-filled night on Wednesday, March 11, 2020, starting at 7:30 p.m. Formed in 1967 in Champaign, IL, and fronted by iconic vocalist Kevin Cronin, REO Speedwagon is a band where the main constant over the decades is a never-ending desire to give their all to their fans, year in and year out. By the early 70s, the bands unrelenting drive, as well as non-stop touring and recording, jump-started the burgeoning rock movement in the Midwest. It carved a path that was eventually followed by STYX, Kansas, Cheap Trick and more. Platinum albums and freeform FM radio staples such as *Riding The Storm Out* followed, setting the stage for 1980s explosive Hi Infidelity. REO rode the top of the charts with a RIAA-certified 22 million albums sold in the U.S. and 40 million around the globe, with a string of gold and platinum records and international hit singles. As ever, expect excellence in song craftsmanship and a rocking live performance!
