Styx is playing Rimrock Auto Arena at MetraPark at 7:30 p.m. on Friday.
The price for two tickets is $45 for reserved seating. Tickets may be purchased at the MetraPark box office, Rimrock Mall Customer Service Center, at local Cellular Plus stores, or by phone at 256-2422 or 800-366-8538. Internet sales are not available for this event.
Tommy Shaw, James “JY” Young, Lawrence Gowan, Todd Sucherman and Ricky Phillips (along with the occasional surprise appearance by original bassist Chuck Panozzo), have performed more live shows since 1999 than all of the previous years of the rock band’s career combined.
Some of those shows include two Super Bowl appearances, and multiple tours with Def Leppard, Journey, Boston, REO Speedwagon and Bad Company.
Spawned from a suburban Chicago basement in the early 1970s, Styx would eventually transform into arena rock stars later in the decade and into the ’80s.
