Styx, REO Speedwagon, Loverboy: 9/14/22 “I was back on the road again riding the storm out, sailing away to Greenville, SC for a midweek show, you could say I’ve been working for my Wednesday. LIVE NATION’s $25 ‘all in’ special was my friend granting me access to some good lower bowl side seats. Running into a personal friend in the concourse, it turned out to be my lucky day. Don asked me if I wanted to sit with him in Luxury Suite 120, ‘Ummm YES sir’! It was my 4th time seeing any combination of the bands within recent years so I mostly expected a recap performance, I WAS WRONG! Billed as the ‘Live And Unzoomed Tour’ aptly named for an official signing out of the pandemic and the reemergence of live in your face rock n roll to the masses. What made this show different was a combined 148 years of rock n rolling, 59 charted singles, a 35 song combined set list, all arena staples… i.e. a powerhouse triple-bill event in sound, production, and energy. With only four dates left on the tour it was a fine-tuned machine. Styx and REO sharing top billing have been alternating co-headliners. Tonight REO got the closing set, and there was no loss of momentum between lightning quick stage turn-arounds. You’d better be quick if you want to get that second or third beer between bands or a diet coke if you’re like me. Loverboy performing as ‘special guest’ opened at precisely 6:45 delivering an 8 song set. The Canadian bred band featured the entire original line-up save bassist Scott Smith who passed away in a 2000 boating accident.‘ Spider’ Sinnaeve (bass) known for his extended solos who’s been with the band since did a first-rate job, and the band as a whole did much better than when I saw them last. Their stage set was mobile featuring dual bass drums mid stage with the red on black logo with a backdrop of the trademark type face font logo, a stack of Marshalls on wheels stage R, a stack of ‘Mark Bass’ amps which looked like double 8 domino tiles stage L also on wheels. Paul Dean (guitar) came out from behind his Marshalls. Mike Reno 67 (vocals) took the stage in trademark bandana, sunglasses and sleeveless shirt. Mike carried himself as talkative and interacted with the audience nearly every song. ‘How you doin’ Greenville?’ ‘It’s good to be back with a live audience, we missed you guys.’ On ‘Lucky Ones’ intro Reno spotted a lady in what appeared to be a wedding dress close to the front, ‘You must be one of the lucky ones’. Later we would come to know her as ‘Kelly’, it was her 21st birthday and Mike had her stand up, turn around and face the audience as he dedicated ‘Hot Girls In Love’ to the young birthday girl. Finishing off the song, Spider showed out one of his famous pounding bass riffs. On ‘Queen Of The Broken Hearts’ Doug Johnson (keys) used the synthesized talk-box. Before ‘Lovin’ Every Minute’ Mike told us how during a tour bus fire nothing was saved except Paul Dean’s boots, ‘Let me see those babies, I thought I smelt something burning.’ The audience sang along on the whoa-oh, whoa-whoa part. At one point a roadie came out handing Reno a microphone while his appeared to have been working fine, ‘What’s that a karaoke mic? Does it play the next song?’ On ‘Turn Me Loose’ I waited for it… and Mike delivered perfection on the scream, ‘I’m gonna pack my bags and FLYYYYYY’, one of the highlights of my evening. It was 1-2-3 on the cowbell and the band brought it all together on ‘Working For The Weekend’. Notably missing from the set were ‘When It’s Over’ and ‘Take Me To The Top’. By this time the half filled arena had grown to about three quarters. Styx was next delivering an hour and fifteen minute/15 song set. The Chicago IL band’s set understandably did not including the DDY ballads as the two entities are long since removed parting separate ways. The band featured Tommy Shaw (who turned 69 Sunday) and his full head of hair that seemed to always fall back perfectly in place all evening long. J.Y. Young 72 an underrated master on the Strat and his signature green axe. Lawrence Gowan 65 (keys since ‘99) who has more than proven himself an effective, energetic, and sometimes humorous frontman. Todd Sucherman, a superhuman on the drum kit. Will Evankovich also on guitar (formerly Guess Who) who produced and cowrote the new album. Co-founder Chuck Panozzo 73 who had battled two life threatening illnesses made an appearance on stage for 4 songs looking happy, healthy, and vibrant. The stage featured 4 person-height light and video screens main stage with 7 step risers on each side leading up to a cat walk with 7 sets of rotating lights in its forefront. Drums were center, a ‘TS’ logo for Todd on each bass drum and Gowan’s custom platformed keyboard with the classic STYX logo on a rotating pole stage R. Tommy Shaw controlled the whole of stage L. Opening with the first of 4 songs interwoven from their ’21 release, they could get away with it ‘cause the new Styx IS the old Styx. On ‘Blue Collar Man’ Lawrence showed off some backward playing on keys. On ‘Grand Illusion’ Tommy ascended up to the catwalk for the solo, standing right on the edge you could see each foot movement up and down on the wah-wah, descending he gave a high kick all the way up to his head during the final instrumental piece. On ‘Lady’ a sea of phone screens could be seen capturing video of the moment in time. The new song ‘Crash’ came across sounding almost ‘Queen-like’. JY introduced the next song, ‘We wrote this next song to decriminalize this wonderful natural plant… LIGHT UP EVERYBODY’! During ‘Rockin The Paradise’ Gowen dressed in a white tie put on a multi color striped jacket and black top hat, dancing, waving, and running in place whenever he was not actually behind the keys. Chuck took the stage for ‘Fooling Yourself’ with JY and Lawrence both on keys, Tommy played acoustic and once again Lawrence played the solo facing backwards. On ’Too Much Time On My Hands’, Tommy switched out the words to: ‘and the fun never ends as long as James Young keeps on buying’. Khedive was next, an instrumental showing off some of Gowen’s classical styled piano playing skills. For ‘Come Sail Away’ once again it was Lawrence taking the lead standing a top his keyboard, walking the catwalk during the chorus, then descending into an Irish or rather a Scottish jig. ‘Mr Roboto’ and ‘Renegade’ were the encore with and a one leg split onto the keyboard by Gowen as if it were a parallel bar. The set ending with a full band final bow. It was possibly my first time ever seeing someone other than the final band perform an encore. Topping off the evening was REO (also from Illinois) with a 13 song set. The band still features original member Neal Doughty 76 (keys) who has played on every album and has never missed a concert, Kevin Cronin 70 (vocals since ‘72) who sounds amazing and got better each song in, plus Bruce Hall 69 (bass since ’77). The stage featured 6 upright light bars, 3 to the R, 3 to the L increasing in height outward with a beacon a top each. The drum platform was center and slightly stage R with the ‘Hi Infidelity’ logo, KORG Keys a top a Hammond B3 were stage R, a grand piano stage L. Behind was a backdrop of the classic REO logo with light bars projecting outward like sun rays sometimes pinwheeling, sometimes pulsating, sometimes radiating. Cronin and his gorgeous Ovation in hand led like a seasoned frontman should. ‘Greenville South Carolina check your selves out (spotlights on the audience)… thank y’all for coming out on a school night and partying with the big boys baby’. A beach ball had landed center stage, waiting for the right moment he kicked it back into the audience at the final note of ‘Don’t Let It Go’. Introducing ‘Live Every Moment’ Kevin informed us, ‘I just turned seventy years old right? I figured I would have some idea of what’s going on around me — I don’t know S**T!’ The song ended with CSN’s ‘Doo doo doo doo doo, doo doo doo doo doo doo’ from Suite Judy Blue Eyes. ‘Can’t Fight This Feeling’ prompted am arena-wide singalong. Between ‘Time For Me To Fly’ and ‘Back On The Road Again’ Hall performed a rousing bass solo the likes of which resembled to me the Courageous Cat theme. For ‘Keep On Loving You’ Cronin took his place on the grand piano. Prior to the final song, ‘Roll With The Changes’, he introduced a good friend of his for years and years to the stage, it was ‘local boy’ Edwin McCain. Kevin left the Greenville stage by saying, ‘We love you, always have and always will’! Notably missing from the set were ‘In Your Letter’ and ‘Keep The Fire Burnin’ (one of their three ‘Keep’ songs). There were no video screens the entire evening lending to the old school feel and everyone appeared to be fine with it. Styx proved themselves the all around official headliner for numerous reasons (but it was close). Styx has described their live events as ‘a gospel caravan trying to send out positive messages wherever we go’, and the entire evening was exactly that. One could easily have knocked 20 years off each member of any of the bands actual age at any given point during the performance. The only thing that could have been better is if individual members of the three bands shared the stage together, now that would’ve be epic.” Review and photo by DAve. (Concert #703-705)

Kick-ass concert. 2 things... #1 - Loverboy was up first and when I say their performance was shortlived, I mean it was almost non existent. They only played a couple of songs when it started storming a little bit. Since it was an outside concert, they evacuated the venue. That changed everything. So we didn't get to see Loverboy. #2 - When I bought the tickets, Joan Jett and the Blackhearts were on the schedule. Since the purchase, I never heard another word about them. They definitely weren't there but if they had have been, they wouldn't have been able to do their set either. Both Styx and REO Speedwagon we're great but so much time was lost due to the storm, their sets were shortened too. I feel like we should have been able to get a partial refund because of the time lost but it was just one of those things. We thoroughly enjoyed what we did get to see and hear.

They still got it! I've been following Styx since the early 70's and I'm amazed how good they still sounds. At this point in a band's existence, most singers either can't reach those higher notes or can't hold them like before. Everyone's voices show little signs of normal "wear & tear". And instrumentally - - tighter than ever. I only wish that I had purchased seats in a better location - I was too far off to the side to see very well. Luckily the music didn't care about location.
