Legendary rockers Styx rocked Pearl at the Palms on Sunday night to the delight of their fans.
After performing two shows in 2013 that showcased “The Grand Illusion” and “Pieces of Eight,” the group hit the Palms stage with the same energy, performing hits that spanned the band’s long career, including “Blue Collar Man,” “One With Everything,” “Crystal Ball,” “Mr. Roboto,” “Come Sail Away” and many more.
Styx — Tommy Shaw, James “J.Y.” Young, Lawrence Gowan, Todd Sucherman and Ricky Phillips — have performed more live since 1999 than all of the previous years of their career combined.
Two Super Bowl appearances and Pollstar Box Office chart-topping tours with Def Leppard, Journey, Boston, REO Speedwagon, Bad Company and more, and two studio albums in the works and no end in sight, Styx continues to sail.
