Rock band Styx has amassed an impressive collection of hit singles and albums, along with endless accolades for their decades of work.  With mega hit singles like “Lady”, “Come Sail Away”, “Too Much Time on My Hands”, “Mr. Roboto” and so many more, they have managed to become one of the most iconic rock bands whose impressive career has transcended generations.  Other accomplishments the band have achieved include four consecutive muli-platinum albums, 16 top 40 singles, with 8 reaching the top 10, and a Grammy nomination in 1979 for Best Rock Vocal Performance by a Duo or Group for the album Cornerstone.

When fans attend a Styx concert it is common to see multiple generations in attendance; often as many as three generations of a family will be seen at a show.  Styx music and live show is magical and surpasses simple nostalgia.  Much of their music sounds as relevant in today’s scene as it did when the songs were first released.  This can be contributed to the band’s innovative sound, use of different instruments and progressive approach to music.

With 16 studio albums released during the span of 1972 to 2017, they will never have a short supply of songs to bring to the stage.  In 2019, the band are scheduled to tour into August, details about each date along with links to purchase tickets can be found on the band’s website.  Tours dates Include:
