The Chicago arena-rock legends STYX bring their only 2019 UK show to the prestigious London Palladium on the 4th June for “An Evening Of Styx.”
They will play music to celebrate their successful 47-year career, including tracks from their most recent studio album, “The Mission”.
The band have been a staple of “Rock radio” playlists for almost fifty years, with songs like: Crystal Ball, Come Sail Away, Lorelei, Blue Collar Man, Renegade, The Grand Illusion, Too Much Time On My Hands and Fooling Yourself (The Angry Young Man).
This will be the first time that Styx will headline their own show in the UK since 2005 and their first British performance since a joint tour with Journey and Foreigner in 2011.
“Considering that the rock band Styx has been influenced by British rock of the ‘60s and ‘70s. It’s always a treat for us to perform there for our fans in Great Britain and beyond,” says guitarist/singer James “JY” Young. “Joe Elliott from Def Leppard was in the audience the first time we played in 1978 in Sheffield, England and now it’s been 40 years since that performance, so now he’ll have to come see us at the London Palladium this time!”
Singer/guitarist Tommy Shaw continues, “We will perform for one night only at the magnificent London Palladium on June 4! It’s been way too long. See you there…”
The current line-up of Styx has been working together for over 15 years and includes Tommy Shaw (vocals, guitars), James “JY” Young (vocals, guitars), Lawrence Gowan (vocals, keyboards), Todd Sucherman (drums) and Ricky Phillips (bass), along with surprise appearances by original bassist Chuck Panozzo.
