What people are saying about An Evening With Styx

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A good night at the London Palladium I've seen Styx before but only as the support act. I figured the show would be in two parts with an interval. Bearing in mind that new album 'The Mission' is a concept album, and with some comments I had seen online, I thought they might play the new album in full for the first half, with greatest hits to follow. I was wrong (and in fact slightly disappointed as I feel the new album is a cracker) but they did play a decent chunk of the new stuff. They opened the show with the intro and and first song from 'The Mission' but then went into the older stuff. I don't have a lot of the Styx back-catalogue (that will have to change!) so didn't recognise some of the songs but I think the majority came from the 'Equinox' to 'Kilroy Was Here' period, with maybe 5 or 6 songs from 'The Mission'. I think all the biggies were there: Mr Roboto, Miss America, Crystal Ball, Boat on the River, Blue Collar Man, Rocking the Paradise and more that I can't presently recall. Maybe a bit too much between-song patter (but it didn't bother me). There were lots of highlights, so difficult to pick out any particular moments but overall it was a fine performance. They brought out Chuck Panozzo for a few songs late in the show (as I'd seen them do before) but as I didn't really follow the band during their peak years it wasn't a big deal for me. In fact it didn't add anything as he seemed to be a bit swamped by his clothes and didn't really look that healthy. Still, a very good show and I would go and see them again, although since their last two visits to the UK were 2007 and 2011, there must be some doubt as to whether they will be back. Let's hope so!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Back to American Top 40 Era I saw them at a bigger venue in the past but London Palladium was much better and easier to see the band.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant Show from a band that still has a lot of life left in it Until this evening the only time that I'd seen Styx was way back in the late 1970s when they toured with 'The Grand Illusion' to a less than sold-out Manchester Apollo (in fact barely half of the seats in the stalls were occupied). I'd always intended to see them on more recent tours, but when you realize that 40 years has past since you last saw them, you realize that you'd better take that opportunity while the band are still active. Well active they certainly are and though they are all a little older, the musicianship, voices and overall performance was absolutely top class. Tommy Shaw, JY and later Lawrence Gowan all spoke candidly between songs of their own love for the English rock bands that had inspired them and the whole band seemed delighted to have the chance to perform in front of an English audience once again. There wre so many highlights, so many top tunes, but personally, being able to hear them play 'Suite Madame Blue' took the show to another level. It was one of the songs that established the band as a favourite and like many of the favourite songs of my teenage years, the lyrics come to mind very easilly. The band even took a slight setlist detour when a member of the audience called for 'Man in the Wilderness' as Tommy Shaw, with an acoustic slung around his neck, prepared to play 'Fooling Yourself'. The impromptu segment that he played - with a large section of the stalls singing along was delightful and heart-warming. Even though the band took a 20 minute break, they swiftly picked up the pace once again with 'Miss America', a fantastic rendition of 'Crystal Ball' (with a recently restored ending), 'Pieces of Eight' (another Surprise) and 'Too Much Time on my Hands' before Lawrence Gowan's solo spot. 'Khedive' and 'State Street Sadie' ably demonostrated his dexterity on the keyboard and a segment of 'Bohemian Rhapsody' (with crowd involvment) showed the power and range of his voice, before the slight curveball of a section of OASIS's 'Don't Look Back in Anger'. 'Come Sail Awy' made a fitting, rocking ending to the main set and it was inevitable that the band would be called back for encores. 'Mr Roboto' was perhaps a likely song for them to play, but for me, at least 'Renegade' was another pleasant surprise and so it ended with a delighted audience and a very happy band. Despite being up in the upper circle, I had a fabulous unrestricted view and went home on a high - a feeling that was apparent amongst much of the rest of the audience. I do hope that the band do return again soon. I (and probably the band too) won't be alive, if I leave it another 40 years!
