Legendary rockers STYX with Tommy Shaw (vocals, guitars), James “JY” Young (vocals, guitars), Lawrence Gowan (vocals, keyboards), Todd Sucherman (drums) and Ricky Phillips (bass), along with a possible surprise appearance by original bassist Chuck Panozzo are coming to Tulsa October 7. The band is currently crisscrossing the U.S. after the successful “Progressive U.S. Tour” with Yes concluded.
They’re making a stop at The Joint at the Cherokee Hard Rock Casino. It can not be confirmed that after the “Progressive” tour STYX felt a compelling need to find Conservative balance, logic and personal freedom in this free enterprise effort, but they are looking forward to the Tulsa event.
STYX is currently putting the finishing touches on REGENERATION, VOLUME 2, the follow-up to 2010’s seven-song EP, REGENERATION, VOLUME 1, which contains six newly re-recorded classics–"Come Sail Away,” "Crystal Ball," "Fooling Yourself (The Angry Young Man),” “Lorelei,” “The Grand Illusion” and “Sing For The Day”—and a brand new track, “Difference In The World.” The track listing for REGENERATION, VOLUME 2 is: “Renegade,” “Blue Collar Man,” “Too Much Time On My Hands,” “Queen of Spades,” “Coming Of Age” (Damn Yankees), “High Enough” (Damn Yankees), “Snowblind,” “Miss America.” Both volumes will be available for sale at every stop along the tour route.
Spawned from a Chicago basement in the early ‘70s, STYX would eventually transform into the arena rock prototype by the late ’70s and early ’80s, due to a fondness for big rockers and soaring power ballads. Over the course of their 38-year career they’ve released 15 studio albums, 6 best-of compilations and 4 live albums, garnering 8 Top Ten singles. STYX has sold over 30 million albums worldwide.
STYX audiences continue to grow and the group has performed more live shows since 1999 than all of the previous years of its career combined. With two Super-Bowl appearances, Pollstar box office chart-topping tours with Def Leppard, Journey, Boston, REO Speedwagon and Bad Company (to name a few), two more studio albums and no end in sight, STYX continues to conquer the planet, one venue at a time.
