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—would eventually transform into the virtual arena rock prototype by the late ’70s and early ’80s, due to a fondness for big rockers and soaring power ballads. Over the course of their 40-year career they’ve released 15 studio albums, six best-of compilations and four live albums, garnering eight Top Ten singles. STYX has sold over 30 million albums worldwide. Throughout their illustrious career, they’ve performed more live shows since 1999 than all of the previous years of its career combined. Two Super Bowl appearances, Pollstar box office chart-topping tours with Def Leppard, Journey, Boston, and Bad Company (to name only a few), two more studio albums. September 2, 2016 marked the long-awaited release date of STYX: LIVE AT THE ORLEANS ARENA LAS VEGAS on DVD, Blu-ray and Digital Formats via Eagle Rock Entertainment. It captures the band performing in July 2014 such fan favorites as: “Too Much Time On My Hands,” Fooling Yourself (The Angry Young Man),” “Renegade,” and more. It also includes a special surprise visit from Don Felder—formerly of the Eagles—for a rousing performance of “Blue Collar Man (Long Nights).” It was released on CD July 24, 2015. After 14 years, STYX’s sonically sweet 16th studio album and its most ambitious, most challenging, and most rewarding album to date, THE MISSION, was finally released June 16, 2017 on the band’s label, Alpha Dog 2T/UMe. It debuted on various Billboard charts, including: #6 Top Rock Albums, #11 Physical Albums, #11 Vinyl Albums, #13 Current Albums, #14 Billboard Top Albums, #16 Retail, #17 Mass Merch/Non-Traditional, #29 Digital Albums, and #45 Top 200 Albums (includes catalog and streaming).

Boston brings their “Hyper Space Tour” to Long Island and has Joan Jett & The Blackhearts as support.
Heart will be joined by Cheap Trick and Joan Jett for a concert tour they all calling the “Rock Hall Three For All” and you know its going to be a night loaded with hits.
Now tell me that this doesn’t sound really damn cool as an event……
Yep. Tossing their hat into the mix of regional festival events comes those fine folks at LivingSocial who will be offering up their Backyard Festival for 2013 which will bring a headlining Aerosmith to the stage along with Joan Jett and The Blackhearts and a band that is new to my musical mind the Yeahsayers. The event will take place on July 13th at Randall’s Island (this is the same place that will host the Governor’s Ball in early June in case you didn’t know). The event will take place on July 13th and also feature craft beers, wine and a BBQ for the ticket price along with the great music. This is something that really appeals to me on all counts since its rather different from the usual stuff where you just buy a ticket for the show. Add to this the kick ass music of Aerosmith and Joan Jett and this sounds like a winning combination.
I’ll be trying to get the proper credentials to not only attend the event but also come back with some photos for you to enjoy after its all said and done. If I secure any of that you will be the first to know and if we do not, well, at least Stryper is playing B.B. King Blues Club that same night.
