Progressive Rock Icons Styx Return to The St. Augustine Amphitheatre on Wednesday, June 16, 2021

St. Augustine, Fla. (April 20, 2021) – The St. Augustine Amphitheatre is thrilled to welcome the return of  progressive rock icons Styx to stage on Wednesday, June 16, 2021 for a limited-capacity concert with distanced  seating. Enhanced safety measures and protocols are in place, including contactless digital ticketing, face  covering requirements, and mobile ordering for concessions. Tickets Styx go on sale next Friday, April 30 at  10:00am at the venue Box Office or online at Ticketmaster.com. 

The six men comprising Styx have committed to rocking the Paradise together with audiences far and wide by  entering their second decade of averaging over 100 shows a year, and each one of them is committed to making  the next show better than the last. Styx draws from over four decades of barnburning chart hits, joyous  singalongs, and hard-driving deep cuts. Like a symphony that builds to a satisfying crescendo, a Styx set covers a  wide range of stylistic cornerstones. From the progressively sweeping splendor that is The Grand Illusion to the  hunker-down fortitude of all that is the Blue Collar Man, from the majestic spiritual love for a special Lady to the  seething indictment of preening, primping pageantry for pageantry’s sake of Miss America, from an individual  yearning for true connection as a Man in the Wilderness to a soul-deep quest to achieve what’s at the heart of  one’s personal vision in Crystal Ball, from the regal reach-for-the-stars bravado of Come Sail Away to the grainy  all-in gallop of that rugged Renegade who had it made, the band draws on an unlimited cache of ways to  immerse one’s mind and body in their signature sound. 

After more than a decade together on the road, this incarnation of Styx is looking forward to performing as  many shows as it can as long as it can. “It all comes back to the chemistry,” says bassist/vocalist Ricky Phillips.  “The legacy of this band will be that it brought joy to millions of people,” notes drummer Todd Sucherman.  Observes keyboardist/vocalist Lawrence Gowan, “We’ve always tried to explain why this is this happening. It’s  obviously a multitude of factors, but the main one is that our show is really good! And if it’s really good, they’re  going to come to see it again.” Styx hopes it’s a wave that never crests. “Every night, we go on that magic carpet  ride together,” observes original bassist Chuck Panozzo, who joins the band on tour as often as he can. “Music is  this amazing force that comes from a higher place. I’m humbled for this band to have the great success that it  has,” says co-founding guitarist/vocalist James “JY” Young. “We just want to keep on doing this,” asserts Tommy.  “We want to let life take its course and let this music continue to be the soundtrack to it. And this band will  continue to evolve as long as we live and play this music.” The jig is up, the news is out: The Esprit de Styx is alive  and well, and now it’s time to see for yourself. Welcome to the Grand Evolution.
