Styx to Tour U.S. With REO Speedwagon and Don Felder

Styx have listed a new run of U.S. tour dates around their previously announced Las Vegas residency in early 2018, with REO Speedwagon and Don Felder included in their plans once again.

The Renegades in the Fast Lane shows feature Styx and former Eagles guitarist Felder, and take place at the Venetian Theatre inside the Venetian Las Vegas between Jan. 26 and Feb. 3. Additional Styx shows have been added before and after those dates, with the first scheduled appearance on Jan. 18 and the last on March 5.

After that, the band will embark on two months’ worth of concerts with REO Speedwagon and Felder in tow, commencing March 13 and ending on April 15. It’s likely that more dates will be added. You can see the full list of announced dates below.

Styx released The Mission – their first studio album of new material in 14 years – in June. In an interview with Ultimate Classic Rock, guitarist and singer Tommy Shaw admitted it had taken a great deal of logistical effort to bring the project to completion.

“Most of the time we’re busy either touring or trying to go home and do that sort of thing,” he said. “So a lot of it was just sort of going on as this parallel universe. It wasn’t until we did the pre-production recordings here at the house. I think that’s where the rubber really met the road. Because people had just been sort of working independently on parts and things like that. When we got here, all of the sudden, we’re all sitting in a room and we’re playing, let’s hear how it all sounds. When you get [drummer] Todd [Sucherman] back there, all of the sudden it goes to another level. Then Ricky Phillips comes in and it’s like, Ricky Phillips needs to be as Ricky Phillips as he can possibly be. He put the Ricky Phillips stamp on it.”

Shaw noted that “the idea was, let’s be as true to the Styx sound. Our favorite Styx sound, which for most of us, is that era around The Grand Illusion and Pieces of Eight. And Equinox too.”
