STYX

Event Date: June, 23 2013

Event Times: 7:30 pm

Tickets: $49 / $59 / $75

Classic rock band STYX is scheduled for their first ever appearance at the historic Paramount Theatre, Cedar Rapids on Sunday June 23 at 7:30 p.m..

Formed in a suburban Chicago basement in the early 1970s, Styx came to Midwest regional attention with their hit song "Lady". Starting when Tommy Shaw joined the band in 1975, Styx reeled off four consecutive multi platinum selling albums "Crystal Ball", "The Grand Illusion", "Pieces of Eight" and "Cornerstone".

By 1981, a Gallup Poll named Styx as America's most popular band, and record sales; radio airplay and concert tour ticket sales backed up their top status. Styx sold out major arenas from coast to coast, including New York's Madison Square Garden, Chicago Stadium, Joe Louis Arena in Detroit and The Forum in Los Angeles.

In recent years, a new generation of Styx fans have joined with older Styx fans at tour dates around the world. Styx has become a part of American pop culture, with their songs featured on tv shows like "Friends", "The Simpsons" and "Family Guy". In Adam Sandler's movie "Big Daddy", Sandler's character states that "Styx is America's greatest rock band". The quirky Styx single "Mr. Roboto" was used in a car company commercial.

Among Styx's many hit records are "Come Sail Away", "Babe", "The Grand Illusion", "Too Much Time on My Hands", "Fooling Yourself (Angry Young Man)", "Renegade", "Blue Collar Man", "Lorelei", "Snowblind" and “Suite Madame Blue".
