Styx to return to SWLA

One of the most popular rock bands of the 20th century is back on the road and selling out venues across the country.

The rock band Styx returns to Southwest Louisiana for a headlining performance on Saturday, Sept. 3, inside The Event Center at L'Auberge Casino Resort in Lake Charles, La. Tickets start at $25 and go on sale at 10 a.m., Friday, July 22, at all Ticketmaster outlets, including HEB Plus on Dowlen Road in Beaumont, online at or charge by phone at 800-745-3000.

The band headlined one of the hottest tours in 2014 with the "Soundtrack of Summer Tour" featuring Foreigner and Don Felder, formerly of the Eagles. Then, in the summer of 2015, Styx co-headlined the surprise tour of the year with Def Leppard, along with opening act Tesla, which traveled across the United States performing in front of sell out crowds in arenas and amphitheaters everywhere. The tour was such a hit it continued into the winter into 2016 before concluding.

Styx still features original members Tommy Shaw and James “J.Y.” Young. Lawrence Gowan handles keyboards and vocals, while the group is completed by Todd Sucherman and Ricky Phillips, drums and bass, respectively. Original bassist Chuck Panozzo has returned to perform bass with the band at select dates.

The group, whose most recent release is “The Grand Illusion, Pieces of Eight Live” in which the band performed both albums in their entirety, is best known for the popular songs “Renegade,” “Blue Collar Man,” “Too Much Time on My Hands,” “Crystal Ball,” “The Best of Times” and many others.
