Having lent their talents to the formation of rock’s modern landscape, the members of Styx continue to flex their toned musical muscles as they shred on cupid’s bow in a special Valentine’s concert. Founded in a Chicago-area basement and named after the most popular water park in ancient Greece, the rock ‘n’ roll giants’ string of multiplatinum albums, Top 10 hits, and arena-filling concerts drained the nation’s lighters throughout the ’70s and early ’80s. Albums such as The Grand Illusion, Pieces of Eight, and Paradise Theatre were heady and conceptual, yet packed with standout singles that play on in classic-rock perpetuity. With the knockout vocals and piano-spinning theatrics of Lawrence Gowan and the guitar tag team of MVP’s James “J.Y.” Young and Tommy Shaw, the band stirs up fond romantic memories of denim jackets in their live show. Lovers snuggle as the band unleashes the king of all monster ballads, “Lady”; renew their vows to “Come Sail Away”; play air organ to “Blue Collar Man (Long Nights)”; and share starry-eyed glances with parole officers during a rousing rendition of “Renegade.”<p>
