linkPALA – Styx, the legendary rockers who combined hard and pop rock into an international music genre, will perform in concert 7:30 p.m., Saturday, Feb. 24, in the events center at Pala Casino Spa & Resort.

link Styx flashed on the rock scene in the 1970s and has had four consecutive albums certified multi-platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America and 16 Top 40 singles. The band is best known for “Lady,” “Come Sail Away,” “Too Much Time on My Hands” and “Renegade.”

link After 14 years, Styx’s sonically sweet 16th studio album and its most ambitious, most challenging and most rewarding album to date, “The Mission,” was released June 16 on the band’s label, Alpha Dog 2T/Ume. It debuted on various Billboard charts, including: No. 6 Top Rock Albums, No. 11 Physical Albums, No. 11 Vinyl Albums, No. 13 Current Albums, No. 14 Billboard Top Albums, No. 16 Retail, No. 17 Mass Merch/Non-Traditional, No. 29 Digital Albums and No. 45 Billboard 200, which includes catalog and streaming.

“In the 40th anniversary year of the release of our biggest selling album of all time, ‘Grand Illusion,’ it just seemed truly appropriate to save our new studio album until this year,” founding guitarist James “JY” Young said.

Videos for the singles, “Gone, Gone, Gone,” and “Radio Silence,” can be seen on the band’s official YouTube and Vevo pages, https://UMe.Ink.to/GGGYT and https://youtube.com/watch?v=2Fcurl8WOuy, respectively.

“The planets truly aligned for ‘The Mission,’ and I couldn’t be prouder,” vocalist and guitarist Tommy Shaw, who co-wrote the album’s storyline with collaborator Will Evankovich of Shaw/Blades, The Guess Who. “It’s our boldest, most emblematic album since ‘Pieces of Eight.’”
