After a highly successful run with their ‘Grand Illusion’ / ‘Pieces of Eight’ tour, Styx has decided to extend the U.S. leg with a handful of additional shows that will keep them on the road throughout the end of the year.

Fans who are west of the Mississippi will finally have their chance to witness the critically-acclaimed performances with an extra pair of dates at Las Vegas’ Pearl at the Palms Casino and Resort, as well as gigs in Washington, California and even Alaska.

The tour features performances of the band’s 1977 album ‘The Grand Illusion’ and its 1978 follow-up, ‘Pieces of Eight,’ in their entirety, along with other classic hits from their long-lasting career. Those albums spawned hit singles and classic rock radio standards such as ‘Come Sail Away,’ ‘Renegade,’ ‘Blue Collar Man’ and ‘Fooling Yourself (The Angry Young Man).’

“This is the most unique Styx concert ever,” says singer/guitarist Tommy Shaw. “It’s a hybrid experience of enjoying the artistry of the vinyl album and the energy and of our live performance.  Some (of these) songs have never been performed live!”
