The 2014 concert will rock Blu-ray in May.
In an early announcement to retailers, Eagle Rock is working on 'Styx: Live At The Orleans Arena' for Blu-ray on May 26.
Filmed in High Definition on July 25, 2014, Live At The Orleans Arena Las Vegas is a sonic showcase of Styx's live prowess and razor-sharp musicianship. This show features the band, backed by huge video screens, performing a set list packed with hit songs, classic tracks, and fan favorites, including "Lady," "Too Much Time On My Hands," "Rockin' The Paradise," "Come Sail Away," "Fooling Yourself (The Angry Young Man)," "Renegade," and "Suite Madame Blue." The evening also held a special surprise when Don Felder – former Eagles guitarist – took the stage to join the band on "Blue Collar Man (Long Nights)".
In addition to the live set, Live At The Orleans Arena Las Vegas features a bonus interview with band members Tommy Shaw (vocals/guitar), James "JY" Young (vocals, guitar, keyboards), Todd Sucherman (drums), Lawrence Gowan (vocals, keyboards), Ricky Phillips (bass, backing vocals), and Chuck Panozzo (bass guitar).
Formed in Chicago in 1972, Styx played a key role in defining the AOR genre, and established themselves as one of America's greatest rock bands. Their blend of soaring melodies, hard rock guitar, and prog-rock elements led to millions of global record sales and numerous platinum and multi-platinum albums. With over 40 years of rockin' under their belt, the band isn't slowing down any time soon, and will embark on a national tour this summer with Def Leppard and Tesla. See below for dates.
