2022 marks the 50th anniversary of Styx‘s formation, and the band will start celebrating the milestone with a new five-show Las Vegas residency at The Venetian Theatre scheduled for January 28 and 29, and February 2, 4 and 5.
Joining the veteran rockers as the special guest during the engagement will be Heart guitarist Nancy Wilson, who released her debut solo studio album, You and Me, in May.
“We are thrilled to announce that Nancy Wilson, the super talented singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist performer we’ve enjoyed as a member of Heart, will be joining STYX on stage when we return to the Venetian,” frontman Tommy Shaw says in a statement. “Talk about ‘these dreams’ coming true!!!”
Adds Wilson, “I’m so pleased to be part of the STYX plus Nancy Wilson collaboration. I think it’s going to be fun and really different from other shows.”
For the shows, Styx has created a special set list and a new stage production. The 2022 residency follows Styx’s September 2021 engagement at the same venue, which is located inside The Venetian Resort Las Vegas.
