Styx And REO Speedwagon To Tour Next Year

Styx have announced plans to hit the road with REO Speedwagon next year. For Styx, the run comes in support of their new release The Mission and kicks off in Tupelo, Mississippi on January 18. Tommy Shaw said of the new album: “Most of the time we’re busy either touring or trying to go home and do that sort of thing,” he said. “So a lot of it was just sort of going on as this parallel universe. It wasn’t until we did the pre-production recordings here at the house. I think that’s where the rubber really met the road. Because people had just been sort of working independently on parts and things like that. When we got here, all of the sudden, we’re all sitting in a room and we’re playing, let’s hear how it all sounds. When you get [drummer] Todd [Sucherman] back there, all of the sudden it goes to another level. Then Ricky Phillips comes in and it’s like, Ricky Phillips needs to be as Ricky Phillips as he can possibly be. He put the Ricky Phillips stamp on it.” Styx 2018 Tour Dates: January 18 – Tupelo, MS – Bancrop South Arena 19 – Lake Charles, LA – Golden Nugget Lake Charles 23 – Salt Lake City, UT – Delta Hall at Eccles Theatre 26 – Las Vegas, NV – Venetian Theatre/The Venetian 27 – Las Vegas, NV – Venetian Theatre/The Venetian 28 – Beverly Hills, CA – Saban Theatre 31 – Las Vegas, NV – Venetian Theatre/The Venetian February 2 – Las Vegas, NV – Venetian Theatre/The Venetian 3 – Las Vegas, NV – Venetian Theatre/The Venetian 21 – Pasadena, CA – The Rose 22 – Phoenix, AZ – Celebrity Theatre 24 – Pala, CA – Pala Casino & Resort March 2 – French Lick, IN – French Lick Resort and Casino 3 – New Buffalo, MI – Silver Creek Event Center 5 – Jamaica – ’70s Rock & Romance Cruise (With REO Speedwagon and Don Felder) 13 – Duluth, MN – Amsoil Arena 14 – Bismarck, ND – Bismarck Event Center 16 – Brookings, SD – Swiftel Center 17 – Moline, IL – TaxSlayer Center 19 – Grand Rapids, MI – Van Andel Arena 20 – Saginaw, MI – Dow Event Center Arena 23 – Cape Girardeau, MO – Show Me Center – SMSU 24 – Springfield, MO – JQH Arena (No Don Felder) 25 – Park City, KS – Hartman Arena April (with REO Speedwagon and Don Felder) 4 – Charlottesville, VA – John Paul Jones Arena 6 – Huntington, WV – Big Sandy Superstore Arena 7 – Greenville, SC – Bon Secours Arena 8 – Tuscaloosa, AL – Tuscaloosa Amphitheatre 10 – N.
