Legendary rockers STYX — Tommy Shaw (vocals, guitars), James "JY" Young (vocals, guitars), Lawrence Gowan (vocals, keyboards), Todd Sucherman (drums) and Ricky Phillips (bass), along with the occasional surprise appearance by original bassist Chuck Panozzo — are continuing on their never-ending "mission" to bring their music to their loyal fans in 2020 with new tour dates that will keep them on the road throughout the new year.
STYX will launch its 2020 tour in the same place it launched its 2019 tour: at the Celebrity Theatre in Phoenix, Arizona on January 10.
Earlier this year, STYX returned to the Pearl Concert Theater at Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas, NV to perform its new album, "The Mission", which critics have called "a masterpiece," in its entirety for the first time ever as part of a sold-out two-act concert event. The second act featured all of STYX's classic hits. The band will now be giving their East Coast fans the chance to witness the unforgettable concert for three shows only: Thursday, November 7 and Saturday, November 16 at the Theatre at Westbury in Westbury, New York; and Saturday, November 9 at the Orpheum Theatre in Boston, Massachusetts. VIP packages and tickets are currently on sale on the band's official web site, and tickets are available on LiveNation.com.
"The show in Las Vegas was so awesome, we wanted to share it with our East Coast friends as well," says guitarist/singer Tommy Shaw. "Now we can say, this is the day… we'll be bringing 'The Mission: Live' to Westbury and Boston!"
STYX returned to Europe earlier this summer for two sold-out headlining shows in London, U.K. and Oslo, Norway, and they performed as part of the Sweden Rock Festival. The first show in London — which was described by the Daily Express as "majestic" — was the first time STYX headlined their own show in the U.K. since 2005 and their first performance in the U.K. since their co-headlining tour with JOURNEY and FOREIGNER in 2011.
