STYX JOINED ONSTAGE BY TED NUGENT
FOR GRAND FINALE OF “THE MIDWEST ROCK ‘N ROLL EXPRESS” TOUR,
PERFORMING DAMN YANKEES’ CLASSIC, “COMING OF AGE”



July 12, 2012 -- Special one-time-only surprises usually happen at the end of a long tour. The final stop in Bangor, ME last Sunday, July 8 of “The Midwest Rock ‘n Roll Express” with STYX, REO Speedwagon and Ted Nugent was no exception. During STYX’s set, lucky fans at that final stop got what they were hoping for when Ted Nugent joined the band for a special performance of the Damn Yankees classic “Coming Of Age.”

As STYX’s Tommy Shaw declared, “Working with Brother Ted has been a real treat. Joining fellow Nugent alumni Dave Amato (REO Speedwagon guitarist) in the wings on a regular basis to watch Ted, Derek (St. Homes), Greg (Smith) and Mick (Brown) craft the perfect set for our collective audience. Night after night, it has been inspirational. Then, to finish the tour with Ted joining STYX on stage for a killer performance of ‘Coming of Age’ caught me off-guard how powerful it was. I swear Nugent was levitating. Damn Yankee brothers forever.”

“The Midwest Rock ‘n Roll Express” began May 1 in Hidalgo, Texas and quickly became one of Pollstar’s top-grossing tours of the summer so far. Rolling Stone recognized the 30-date tour as one of the “Ten Hottest Summer Package Tours of 2012” noting, “Likely Highlight: Styx has played ‘Renegade’ and ‘Come Sail Away’ about six thousand times, but the fans keep coming back for more.”
