Come Sail Away with Styx
From the all-in gallop of that rugged “Renegade” who had it made to the reach-for-the-stars bravado of “Come Sail Away,” Styx draws from more than four decades of barn-burning chart hits, joyous sing-alongs and hard-driving deep cuts. Styx brings their signature rock style to Levitt Pavilion Arlington for a benefit concert – proceeds help the Levitt offer more than 50 free concerts a year that everyone can enjoy.

Styx hit its stride with 1976’s "Crystal Ball, then became the first group to score four triple-platinum albums in a row: "The Grand Illusion" (1977), "Pieces of Eight" (1978), "Cornerstone" (1979), and "Paradise Theater" (1981), featuring hits like “Lady,” “Miss America,” “Fooling Yourself” and “Too Much Time on My Hands.” The Grammy nominees reconvened for a highly successful 1996 Return to Paradise tour. After 14 years, STYX’s 16th studio album – and its most ambitious, challenging and rewarding album to date – "The Mission", was released in 2017 on the band’s label. The Mission originally debuted on various Billboard charts, including at number six on Top Rock Albums.
After more than a decade together on the road, the current version of Styx includes co-founder and original bassist Chuck Panozzo, who joins the group as often as he can, along with guitarist James “JY” Young and guitarist/vocalist Tommy Shaw, who both have been with Styx since the early days in the 1970s.
