Last night in Pittsburgh, STYX's light show was upstaged by the ultimate lighting technician up above. Lightning and thunder and sideways rain threatened to overpower the 20,500+ audience, but it passed as quickly as it appeared. Something tells me the audience was there to stand their ground anyway. What a night!
--The band was happy to be back on stage after a nonstop schedule of press and personal appearances in New York during what was listed in the itinerary as "days off". A stop over at VH-1 blossomed into a return visit 2 days later, where Styx fans who have become producers and executives in the last few years, instigated a 4-song acoustic set which is set to air in the near future. Hosted by Robin Dorian, the band performed "Come Sail Away", "Fooling Yourself", "Lady", and "Babe"...
--This past Wednesday night STYX performed its show for a sold to the rafters audience at the Beacon Theatre. In the city that has seen it all, STYX fans warmed up to the band and welcomed them back with smiles and thunderous applause... In addition, New York audiences were introduced to Tommy Shaw's daughter, Hannah, who turns 9 on July 9th. She was spotted by Dennis when she brought Tommy's six-string acoustic out for the acoustic portion of the show...
--Preparations are under way for the upcoming STYX show in Atlanta, where the band will perform at Chastain Park with The Atlanta Symphony Orchestra. 97 musicians, not including the band will take the stage on Saturday, June 29. If there are tickets left, they won't be available long, so if you are interested, make your move...
--Tommy from STYX and Greg from KANSAS, proved that they'd better not give up the day job when they picked up a little game of roundball yesterday with Danny Dupree (KANSAS' merchandiser) and Matthew DeYoung, Dennis' 16 year old son, backstage in Pittsburgh. After missing several shots and bouncing the ball off cars parked nearby, it was gently suggested by their teammates that they might think of getting back to the dressing room and getting ready to perform
