Styx Adds February Tour Dates
Styx is slowly adding new dates to its 2013 itinerary. The band now has four February shows on the books for Santa Ynez and Oroville, California; North Myrtle Beach, South Carolina; and Orlando, Florida.
 
Styx co-founder and guitarist J.Y. Young told us that although Styx may be best known for its classic pop and ballad hits, the band's Chicago brand of prog rock remains a major component of its musical DNA: "Y'know, early on we were doing a lot of prog-type things back then. And, duh, The Grand Illusion -- that's pomp and circumstance -- (The) Grand Illusion; there ya go. So, it (was) a huge part of the influence before the super soft pop side of our band started to emerge in the late-'70s. And we've gone away from that. We're back, sort of, to the prog era. That's really what we've focused on at this point."
