Progressive rock can be both challenging and accessible, much like a James Joyce pop-up book or a mathematical proof written in barbecue sauce. Calculate the thrills of the incalculably catchy with today’s Groupon: for $19, you get one ticket to see Yes and Styx on Tuesday, July 5, at 7 p.m. at the PNC Bank Arts Center (a $29.25 value before fees, or up to a $38.25 value online, including all ticketing fees). Doors open at 6 p.m., and parking is included.
Having helped shape the rock landscape, Yes and Styx continue to flex their honed and toned musical muscles as they co-headline their 2011 U.S. Progressive Tour. The virtuosos of Yes flaunt their titanic talents as they crack the spine on a songbook that includes showstoppers such as “Roundabout” and “Owner of a Lonely Heart,” as well as material from their newest album, Fly From Here. Styx, responsible for tunes such as “Come Sail Away” and named for the most popular water park in ancient Greece, invites listeners to hitch their ears to its litany of hits, many of which have been re-recorded for the band's Regeneration series.
All seating is in the 400 level in sections 401–405 of the spacious and scenic PNC Bank Arts Center. The venue is outdoors, ensuring ample supplies of oxygen to fuel the full-throated cheers all performers rely upon for sustenance.
