Legendary and multi-Platinum rockers STYX–Tommy Shaw (vocals, guitars), James “JY” Young (vocals, guitars), Lawrence Gowan (vocals, keyboards), Todd Sucherman (drums) and Ricky Phillips (bass), along with the occasional surprise appearance by original bassist Chuck Panozzo—are on the road again and this summer they’ll be touring and playing their hits with .38 Special and Don Felder.
They are coming to Verizon Wireless Ampitheatre on May 15, 2016.
Later this summer, Eagle Rock Entertainment will release Live At The Orleans Arena Las Vegas on DVD, Blu-ray, CD, and Digital Formats. Filmed in High Definition on July 25, 2014, Live At The Orleans Arena Las Vegas is a sonic showcase of STYX’s live prowess and razor-sharp musicianship. This show features the band, backed by huge video screens, performing a set list packed with hit songs, classic tracks, and fan favorites, including “Lady,” “Too Much Time On My Hands,” “Rockin’ The Paradise,” “Come Sail Away,” “Fooling Yourself (The Angry Young Man),” “Renegade,” and “Suite Madame Blue.” The evening also held a special surprise when former Eagles guitarist Don Felder took the stage to join the band on “Blue Collar Man (Long Nights).” In addition to the live set, Live At The Orleans Arena Las Vegas features a bonus interview with all six band members.
On January 31, 2012, Eagle Rock Entertainment released Styx: The Grand Illusion/Pieces Of Eight Live on DVD, Blu-Ray, and DVD/2CD. This show was recorded November 9, 2010 at the historic Orpheum Theater in Memphis, on the tour that saw them perform both these albums in their entirety for the first time. The 20-song, two-hour and 11-minute presentation features stunning high-definition visuals accenting the complex musical arrangements recorded in DTS-HD Master Audio, Dolby Digital 5.1, and LPCM Stereo. The staging of these two multi-platinum albums and the fevered response makes this concert a must for all STYX fans. Styx: The Grand Illusion/Pieces Of Eight Live also includes the bonus feature “Putting On The Show,” an inside look at the people and equipment needed to stage such a massive spectacle. On May 7, 2013, Eagle Rock Entertainment released the entire concert as a 2CD set entitled The Grand Illusion/Pieces Of Eight Live.
STYX also released their double-disc REGENERATION, VOLUME I & II on October 24, 2012 via Eagle Rock Entertainment. In addition to thirteen STYX classics and a brand new song, “Difference In The World,” the collection also includes interpretations of “High Enough,” and “Coming Of Age,” originally recorded by Damn Yankees, which featured Tommy Shaw, along with Night Ranger’s Jack Blades, Ted Nugent and drummer Michael Cartellone. The band had originally re-recorded these acclaimed anthems to sell only at their live shows, as they continued to tour the globe and introduce a new generation of fans to their chart-topping hits. Now, for the first time, this music has been made commercially available.
