Due to structural issues, the STYX concert, formerly scheduled to take place at the Atlantic Union Bank Pavilion in Portsmouth, has been moved to Chrysler Hall. The City of Portsmouth will keep the venue closed for the entire remainder of the year while the roof undergoes work. Previously purchased tickets to this concert will be honored at the door. Visit www.pavilionconcerts.com for more information regarding the relocation.
Styx is among the most enduring bands in rock history, rocking audiences with more than 100 shows a year every year since 1999. Styx is responsible for such classics as “Renegade,” “Babe,” “Lady,” “Too Much Time On My Hands,” “Mr. Roboto,” “Show Me the Way,” and “Come Sail Away.”
Styx’s combined ballads and hard-rocking anthems generate one of rock’s most immediately identifiable sounds.
Founded in Chicago in 1972, Styx has the unique distinction of being the first band in rock history to have four consecutive certified multimillion-selling albums in a row: 1977’s “The Grand Illusion,” 1978’s “Pieces of Eight,” 1979’s “Cornerstone,” and 1981’s “Paradise Theatre.”
Styx is Tommy Shaw (acoustic and electric guitars, mandolin, vocals), James “JY” Young (electric guitar and vocals), Chuck Panozzo (bass guitar), Todd Sucherman (drums, percussion, waterphone), Lawrence Gowan (piano, Hammond B3 organ, synthesizers, vocals) and Ricky Phillips (bass guitar, vocals).
