Dennis DeYoung Heading Back Out On The Road
Former Styx frontman and songwriter Dennis DeYoung kicks off his next string of solo dates on Friday (April 4th) in Hankinson, North Dakota's Dakota Magic Casino. DeYoung's solo shows feature a Styx-heavy setlist -- including his sidemen performing classic tunes written by former bandmate Tommy Shaw. So far, DeYoung has a total of 14 shows on the books between now and October.
 
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."
