American rock band Styx was formed in Chicago, Illinois way back in 1972. They were a band that could be said to be way ahead of their time or the music landscape at that time. They are loosely categorized as a progressive rock band, as they are best known for melding hard rock guitar, synthesizers, and acoustic piano, pumping it up with upbeat tracks, infusing passion through power ballads, and incorporating elements of international musical theatre.
Love 'em or hate 'em, Styx was the first band in history to have four consecutive albums go platinum, which is achieving a minimum of two million copies sold apiece. This amazing breakthrough in their career came via the album "The Grand Illusion" (1977), which peaked at No. 6 in both the US and Canada, and became the first of four straight triple-platinum albums in the US for Styx. The band's vast catalog includes eight singles that hit the top 10 on the Billboard Hot 100 list, including "Come Sail Away" and "Lady"; while 16 of their songs made it to the top 40. Styx has sold over 54 million records to their name.
Styx has not rested on their laurel of hit songs, so to speak. After spending quite some time touring on the merits of classic rock nostalgia, they experience a creative resurgence with the release of their 2017 album "The Mission", following it up this year with "Crash of The Crown".
Whether you're in for the nostalgia or just starting to wade through the deep rivers of music of Styx, experiencing them live onstage will give you nothing but the best of times. Hurry, get your tickets now!
