Spawned from a suburban Chicago basement in the early 1970s, STYX transformed American progressive rock by combining hard rock guitar and soaring power ballads with elements of musical theater. The band will bring their signature sound and chart-topping hits to the Talking Stick Resort in the Salt River Grand Ballroom on Saturday Jan 18, 2014.
Early on, STYX's music reflected such then-current prog rockers as Emerson, Lake & Palmer and the Moody Blues. While the band’s first two albums and non-stop touring helped the group build a substantial local following, it wasn’t until the song "Lady" hit mainstream that the band catapulted to fame. They have continued to make music and earn fans through stellar live performances including tours with Def Leppard, Journey and REO Speedwagon. Join fans for yet another incredible show and hear favorites such as “Lady,” “Mr. Roboto” and “Come Sail Away.”
