Classic rock group STYX is scheduled to return to Wichita Falls, Texas for the first time in 11 years at Memorial Auditorium!
Formed in a suburban Chicago basement in the early 1970s, Styx first came to Midwest regional attention with their hit single "Lady". Starting when Tommy Shaw joined the band in 1975, Styx reeled off 4 consecutive multi platinum selling albums "Crystal Ball", "The Grand Illusion", "Pieces Of Eight", and "Cornerstone".
In 1981, a Gallup Poll named Styx as America's most popular rock band, and record sales, radio airplay and concert tour ticket sales backed up their status. Styx sold out New York's Madison Square Garden, Chicago Stadium, Reunion Arena in Dallas and The Forum in Los Angeles.
In recent years, a new generation of Styx fans have joined with older Styx fans at concerts around the world. Styx has become a part of American pop culture, with their songs featured on tv shows including "Friends", "The Simpsons" and "Family Guy". In Adam Sandler's movie "Big Daddy", Sandler's character declares that "Styx is America's Greatest Rock Band!" The quirky Styx single "Mister Roboto" was featured in a car company commercial.
Among Styx's many hit singles are "Come Sail Away", "The Grand Illusion", "Babe", "Too Much Time On My Hands", "Fooling Yourself (Angry Young Man)", "Renegade", "Blue Collar Man", "Lorelei", Suite Madame Blue", and "Snowblind".
