Styx Whips Out The Big Ones

01:01 PM Wednesday 8/4/10 | |

Styx fans will get plenty of the classics this fall as the band promises to do not one, but two of its most popular albums from start-to-finish.

The albums are 1977’s The Grand Illusion, which features Styx classics like the LP’s title track along with “Come Sail Away,” and “Fooling Yourself (The Angry Young Man)” and 1978’s Pieces Of Eight, which was responsible songs like “Renegade” and “Blue Collar Man (Long Nights).” Both albums took ‘70s AOR radio by storm and songs on each album are now considered must-play tracks on classic rock stations.

In addition to presenting the two albums live, the band will also dig into its catalog of hits. So expect a few surprises as well.

“This is the most unique Styx concert ever,” singer/guitarist Tommy Shaw said. “It’s a hybrid experience of enjoying the artistry of the vinyl album and the energy of our live performance. Some songs have never been performed live!”

Styx is also offering a seven-song EP, called Regeneration, Volume 1, containing newly re-recorded versions of “Crystal Ball,” “Lorelei,” “Fooling Yourself (Angry Young Man),” “The Grand Illusion,” “Sing For The Day,” and “Come Sail Away” plus a new track, “Difference In The World.” The EP will be sold at every October and November tour stop.

The Grand Illusion / Pieces Of Eight run begins Oct. 14 in Evansville, Ind., at The Centre Oct. 14, plays Merrillville, Ind., at the Star Plaza Theatre Oct. 15 and stops in Waukegan, Ill., for a gig at Genesee Theatre Oct. 16. Other stops include New York, Baltimore, Toledo, Washington, Memphis, Nashville, Louisville, Atlanta, Columbus, Ohio, and Fort Myers, Fla.

Tickets for some dates go on sale as early as Aug. 6. For more information, click here for the Styx website, and here, here, here and here for the band’s Facebook, MySpace, Twitter and YouTube pages, respectively.

    I used to think Genisis was good, until they released Misunderstanding, Susudio, Turn it on Again, Mama, That's All, Taking it all to Hard, Tonight Tonight. Now I listen to Hall and Oates to get my lyrical depth...

    I used to think STYX was good, till I saw AC/DC.  

    Then I fell down on my knees and worshipped STYX as gods among man.

    Then I heard Genesis, and melted my STYX albums into ashtrays.

    I used to think ACDC was good til I listened to some new rock & metal.  Also when I learned how to play guitar I realized how weak they are.
