This was the 5th time I've seen Styx live and this was there best one yet, amazing 19 song setlist! Whole crowd was being awesome to the band and singing all the hits! Styx is one a generation band from kids the age 12 to 20 to adults from from 30 to 70 plus! They never disappoint and I will see them again again again until they stop touring! They in my top 10 bands of all time and long live Tommy Shaw one of the greatest guitars players ever! Also, shout out Nancy Wilson Heart, they were amazing opening band!

The show was GREAT !! Wish I could have afforded close seats, would love to get a guitar pick. Disappointed that they did not do Our Wonderful Lives and Crystal Ball. Also would have liked to hear Boat On The River and Sing for the Day. I like REO but wish the concert was just Styx so I could hear more of their songs. I have been a Styx fan a long time, it was my 7th time seeing them. I took my grandkids ( 19 & 15) with us this time. They thought the show was awesome. A new generation of Styx fans.

WOW!!! To kick off the night Don Felder of Eagles fame opened the night with an amazing band performing many of the songs from the Eagles and originals from his own band. Top notch to say the least. Next we were treated to a blistering set from Blues Rock guitarist/vocalist Mr. Joe Bonamassa. Joe as always put his heart & soul into every performance. His band of course was off the hook & featured Josh Smith on guitar!! To add some sultry spice to an already amazing stew Joe has been touring with 2 of the finest female vocalists and they did not disappoint as they kicked the show up another notch in my opinion. Last but most definitely not least....STYX. STYX has been around for many years and i've been a huge fan for most all of them. It was a guitarmageddon!!! Each and everyone of the band members are spectacular in their own right, together it's pure magic. Not one of the band members has lost a single step instrument wise or vocally. The entire show was well worth the price of admission at the beautiful Bethel Woods Center for the Arts located on the site of the original Woodstock Festival. Great time and wonderful memories...

About Styx

Tommy Shaw, James “JY” Young, Lawrence Gowan, Todd Sucherman and Ricky Phillips (along with the occasional surprise appearance by original bassist Chuck Panozzo), have performed more live since ’99 than all of the previous years of its career combined. Two Super-Bowl appearances, Pollstar Box Office chart-topping tours with Def Leppard, Journey, Boston, REO Speedwagon, Bad Company (to name only a few), two more studio albums and no end in sight, STYX continues to conquer the planet, one venue at a time.

Spawned from a suburban Chicago basement in the early ‘70s, Styx would eventually transform into the virtual arena rock prototype by the late '70s and early '80s, due to a fondness for big rockers and soaring power ballads.

Early on, Styx's music reflected such then-current prog rockers as Emerson, Lake & Palmer and the Moody Blues, as evidenced by such releases as 1972's self-titled debut, 1973's Styx II, 1974's The Serpent Is Rising, and 1975's Man of Miracles. While the albums (as well as non-stop touring) helped the group build a substantial following locally, Styx failed to break through to the mainstream, until a track originally from their second album, "Lady" started to get substantial airplay in late '74 on the Chicago radio station WLS-FM. The song was soon issued as a single nationwide, and quickly shot to number six on the singles chart, as Styx II was certified gold. By this time, however, the group had grown disenchanted with their record label, and opted to sign on with A&M for their fifth release overall, 1975's Equinox (their former label would issue countless compilations over the years, culled from tracks off their early releases). On the eve of the tour in support of the album, original guitarist John Curulewski abruptly left the band, and was replaced by Tommy Shaw. Shaw proved to be the missing piece of the puzzle for Styx, as most of their subsequent releases throughout the late '70s earned at least platinum certification (1976's Crystal Ball, 1977's The Grand Illusion, 1978's Pieces of Eight, and 1979's Cornerstone), and spawned such hit singles and classic rock radio standards as "Come Sail Away," "Renegade," "Blue Collar Man" and "Fooling Yourself.”

The band decided that their first release of the '80s would be a concept album, 1981's Paradise Theater, which was loosely based on the rise and fall of a once-beautiful theater (which was supposedly used as a metaphor for the state of the U.S. at the time -- the Iranian hostage situation, the Cold War, Reagan, etc.). Paradise Theater became Styx's biggest hit of their career (selling over three million copies in a three-year period), as they became one of the U.S. top rock acts due to such big hit singles as "Too Much Time on My Hands". It also marked the first time in history that a band released four consecutive triple-platinum albums.

A career-encompassing live album, Caught in the Act, was issued in 1984, before Styx went on hiatus, and the majority of its members pursued solo projects throughout the remainder of the decade. A re-recording of their early hit, "Lady" (titled "Lady" '95"), for a Greatest Hits compilation, finally united Shaw with his former Styx bandmates, which led to a full-on reunion tour in 1996. But drummer John Panozzo fell seriously ill at the time (due to a long struggle with alcoholism), which prevented him from joining the proceedings -- as he passed away in July of the same year. Although grief-stricken, Styx persevered with new drummer Todd Sucherman taking the place of Panozzo, as the Styx reunion tour became a surprise sold-out success, resulting in the release of a live album/video, 1997's "Return to Paradise," while a whole new generation of rock fans were introduced to the grandiose sounds of Styx via a humorous car ad which used the track "Mr. Roboto," as well as songs used in such TV shows as South Park and Freaks & Geeks.
