Although the band’s official farewell tour ended in 2008, their momentum is as strong—if not stronger—than ever as they embark on a ten-stop "Promotional Copy" Tour. Over the past decade and a half, Reggie and the Full Effect have brazenly inspired and baffled fans with their outlandish antics and unconventional concepts on an international scale. While we'd be willing to bet that the band's crowning glory comes in the form of their off-the-wall shenanigans, others may argue that their greatest successes include seven full-length albums and collaborations with noteworthy groups like Alkaline Trio, My Chemical Romance and Hellogoodbye.
Nonetheless, Reggie and the Full Effect have yet another achievement to add to their list: a tour fifteen years in the making with their return to the Northeast. While you may have caught them at the Warped Tour or are familiar with their hit singles like "Congratulations Smack and Katy" and "Get Well Soon", it's been said that nothing compares to seeing the eccentric rock posse in person. For instance, on one of their recent tours, the band performed nightly in Pilgrim costumes with the frontman in a full turkey costume. With dramatic metal sounds vibrantly juxtaposed by comical aesthetics, this dynamic group deserves to be seen atleast once.
Although the album, Promotional Copy, was released in 2000, time plays no deterrent in taking it to the road. With stops in Maryland, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, Ohio, Michigan, New Jersey and New York, Reggie and the Full Effect just may be bringing the debauchery to a city near you.
