December 4, 2017 -- 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 getting ready to wrap up another busy year of touring in the U.S., having performed over 100 shows. They’re not showing any signs of taking a break from touring in 2018.
Earlier this summer, STYX announced another special five-night limited engagement with DON FELDER -at The Venetian Theatre inside The Venetian Las Vegas. Presented by SiriusXM, “Styx & Don Felder: Renegades In The Fast Lane,” will take place at The Venetian Theatre inside The Venetian Las Vegas on January 26, 27, 31 and February 2, 3, 2018. Tickets are on sale now at Ticketmaster.com, Venetian.com, any box office at The Venetian or The Palazzo, or by calling 702 414 9000 or 866 641 7469.
In addition to the residency in Las Vegas, the rest of STYX’s 2018 tour schedule is already starting to take shape. They’ll join forces once again with fellow legends REO SPEEDWAGON, and very special guest star DON FELDER—formerly of the Eagles—for month-long trek starting in Duluth, MN on March 13 at the Amsoil Arena. Tickets for various cities go on sale starting December 1.
STYX is on the road in support of their highly anticipated and critically acclaimed 16th studio album, THE MISSION, which skyrocketed onto various Billboard charts—including #6 on the “Top Rock Albums” and #11 “Vinyl Albums” charts--upon its release thanks to a solid album that connected with their longtime fans as well as new fans who are discovering them for the first time.
THE MISSION--which was recorded over a two-year period at Blackbird Studios, The Shop, and 6 Studio Amontillado in Nashville--displays the best aspects of the ongoing in-harmony musical intersection of the six-man STYX team: the guitarist/vocalist Tommy Shaw, co-founding guitarist/vocalist James “JY” Young, keyboardist/vocalist Lawrence Gowan, original bassist Chuck Panozzo, drummer/percussionist Todd Sucherman, and bassist Ricky Phillips.
