Come Sail Away…To See Styx Perform At The Big E
Multiplatinum recording artists and Chicago's native sons, Styx, will be performing at this year's Eastern States Exposition on October 3rd. And what a concert that is going to be!
One of the biggest American rock bands of the 70s and 80s is heading to West Springfield to play the Big E which is the sixth-largest fair in the United States. Styx may not be as big a name today, but trust me, there was a point where the group had 4 triple-platinum selling albums in a row!
I mean the term "classic rock" was practically invented for a band like Styx. You don't need me to tell you, but just take a look at these song titles from their discography(better yet seek them out online and listen to them):
"Lady"; "Come Sail Away"; "Too Much Time On My Hands"; "Renegade"; "Babe"; "The Grand Illusion"; "Show Me The Way"; "Blue Collar Man"; "The Best Of Times"; "Fooling Yourself(The Angry Young Man)"; "Rockin' The Paradise"; "Mr. Roboto"; "Suite Madame Blue"; "Sing For The Day"; "Don't Let It End"; and the list goes on...
As a matter of fact, here's some prime concert footage of Styx during The Grand Illusion tour, circa 1978:
The band will perform hits from all across their career which now spans 5 decades. Styx will perform at the Big E Arena at 7:30 p.m. on Sunday, October 3. Tickets for the show go on sale this Friday morning at 10 a.m., exclusively on the Big E's website.
