Styx will be teaming with their occasional touring partner, former Eagles member Don Felder, for a five-night engagement at the Venetian Theatre in Las Vegas. The show, “Styx & Don Felder: Renegades In The Fast Lane,” will be held on January 6, 7, 11, 13 and 14, 2017. Tickets are on sale here. Tickets for all Styx concerts – including the Vegas dates – are also available here.

For these special performances, Styx – Tommy Shaw (vocals, guitars), James “JY” Young (vocals, guitars), Lawrence Gowan (vocals, keyboards), Todd Sucherman (drums) and Ricky Phillips (bass), along with the occasional surprise appearance by original bassist Chuck Panozzo – has created an exclusive set list and brand new stage production. The announcement notes the “multi-show run will pay tribute to both Styx’s and Felder’s combined 45-plus years as one of the most successful rock ‘n’ roll bands in history and one of rock’s most illustrious guitar legends.”

“I have been an admirer of Don Felder’s unique gifts as a guitar player for decades,” says Young. “Finally meeting him and having him on the same bill as us in 2014 was great fun. He’s like a long lost brother to me. We are going to have some great fun and nights of musical excellence sharing the stage. Can’t wait!!!”
