After forming in 1961 in Chicago, Illinois, while in high school, Styx steadily toured and expanded from a three-piece to a quintet during the 60s, signing with local record label Wooden Nickel Records in 1972, and releasing their self-titled debut that year. 1973’s Styx II and The Serpent Is Rising followed, as well as 1974’s Man of Miracles, further refining their output as they transitioned from straight-forward rock n roll into a more progressive rock, incorporating psychedelic flourishes and experimental structuring, as well as hard rock guitars, powerful ballads and theatrical elements. They signed with A&M Records, releasing Equinox in 1975, and subsequently 1976’s Crystal Ball and 1977’s The Grand Illusion, their breakout album that sold over 3 million copies propelled by singles Come Sail Away and Fooling Yourself. In 1981, Styx released Paradise Theatre, a concept album chronicling the fictional rise and fall of the Chicago theatre, which became their fourth consecutive triple-platinum album, reached #1 on the Billboard charts, and spawned five singles, including top ten hits The Best of Times and Too Much Time on My Hands. Next was 1983’s full-fledged rock opera Kilroy Was Here, which featured synthesizer and vocoder-driven Mr. Roboto and the power ballad Don’t Let It End. Following a half-decade separation in the 80s and a brief break-up in the 90s, Styx’s 1996 tour Return to Paradise was a success, and since then have continued releasing albums and satisfying ticket holders at concerts around the world with the likes of Def Leppard, Foreigner and Boston.

Ageless Rockers!

I was surprised at how much I enjoyed this show! I've seen Styx 3 times before (over the decades) and didn't have terribly high expectations other than enjoying some live music. Well I was on my feet the whole time! They sound amazing! They all seemed to have so much fun and put on a high energy show right through their encore. They played all their hits as well as a couple excellent new songs.

Styx spot on as usual!

While I would have liked to see them play longer, Styx had another excellent show at Klipsch Music Center in Noblesville, Indiana. They headlined and the set was short for a headliner, but they weren't travelling with slouches. Don Felder started things off with a fine showing followed by REO Speedwagon. Lead guitar was having some sound issues early on, but once it was figured out the set took off by the time they played Golden Country. Styx took the stage shortly after REO departed and opened with the beginning tracks from their new Mission to Mars CD. Styx is always on point and tonight was no different. So impressed with how these guys can play and sing at such a high level night in and night out, year after year. My only gripe is the tacky self promotion of their CD minutes before they hit the stage. We're already there, we're already fans, no need to blast a lame commercial at concert sound right before you step out and play some of the music you are blaring in the promotion. First negative thing I've said about Styx in ages.

Very good show and set list ....

I have seen Styx four times live and they do not disappoint. I am 47 and grew up listening to them since seventh grade. They sound as good as ever and they rock. The drummer for Styx is very good.

Styx is the Ulitmate Concert Experience

I have seen Styx several times in many different venues. The last time I saw this band was in Louisville Kentucky. They did a version of Hallelujah to honor the songwriter who passed away. They did songs from the Pieces of Eight album, which is my favorite album. From the first chord played to the last note sung the show was high energy and a great experience. I will still continue to see them in concert in hopes one day I will receive one of those guitar picks they throw out to the audience. Tommy Shaw is one of the most talented guitarist in rock and roll. I hope one day they will be in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Lord knows they deserve it.
