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.
