|Dennis DeYoung of Styx|
February 27, 2013 –Today we got word of a gig that our classic rock readers will be interested in. Styx had a run of five albums that defined an era in the late 70’s/early 80’s. From 1977’s The Grand Illusion, to 1978’s Pieces of Eight, to 1979’s Cornerstone, to 1981’s Paradise Theater and finally 1983’s Kilroy Was Here Styx were tearing up the charts and dominating radio play. The classic Styx lineup broke up 30 years ago and even though a band still tours with the name Styx they really are not Styx without Dennis DeYoung (much like many classic rock era bands such as Foreigner, Yes, Supertramp and Journey for some examples). DeYoung was they keyboardist and vocalist of Styx during their epic 5 album run of mega success and this gig at Massey Hall will prove to be as good as any current Styx show. We are excited about this show and give it a strong recommendation. Because of legal settlements with the other members of the band DeYoung can’t use the phrase “The Voice Of Styx” to describe this show, but we can – DeYoung is the voice of Styx so don’t miss out.
