For over two decades Styx has performed thousands of concerts across the world for fans inspired by hits like “Come Sail Away”, “Miss America”, and “Blue Collar Man”.

Tommy Shaw, James “JY” Young, Lawrence Gowan, Todd Sucherman and Ricky Phillips (along with the occasional surprise appearance by original bassist Chuck Panozzo), have performed more live since 1999 than all of the previous years of its career. With two Super-Bowl appearances, Pollstar Box Office chart-topping tours with Def Leppard, Journey, Boston, REO Speedwagon, Bad Company (to name only a few), two more studio albums, and no end in sight, Styx continues to conquer the planet, one venue at a time.

This collaboration will blend the hard-driving music of Styx with the orchestral depth of symphony for a memorable concert like no other this season.
