Dennis DeYoung Knows He Has To Deliver Styx Hits In Concert
Former Styx frontman and songwriter Dennis DeYoung is hitting the road for an 11-date summer tour, which kicks off on June 28th at Nashville, Tennessee's War Memorial Auditorium. DeYoung's solo shows feature a Styx-heavy setlist -- including his sidemen performing classic tunes written by former bandmate Tommy Shaw.
 
DeYoung told us that there's only so much envelope pushing you can do in a live setting without alienating the people paying to see you play: "I fool with the setlist. Y'know, I drop in this, that, and the other thing from time to time, I play a couple of songs from my solo career. But when it comes down to it at this point in my life, at any rate, the vast majority of the audience has a particular set of songs in mind that they really want to hear. Y'know, I added 'Born For Adventure' from the (1975 Styx) Equinox album -- and I've been playing that, and people really dig it -- but, y'know what? They don't recognize it. (Laughs) Y'know what I'm sayin'? A percentage does. But the vast majority of that audience, they really know the big ones, and that's just the way it is."
