Last night in Oklahoma City STYX played to a full house at the Zoo Amphitheatre. As promised by many fans, candles and lighters filled the darkened night to honor John Panozzo as the band played "Show Me the Way" after Dennis dedicated it to him. There was also a huge banner signed by dozens of fans who seemed to be looking for a way to express their own sadness. "It is a perfect night to be here under the Oklahoma sky," Tommy said as he greeted the audience before STYX burst into "Too Much Time". Mike Sherril, STYX's tour manager in the 80's surprised them by showing up back stage. He had traveled from Tulsa, where he lives, to see the band for the first time since he last worked with them. Backstage many funny stories were overheard, not the least of which was an insane impromptu trip to Negril, Jamaica when the band was unable to return to Chicago because of severe snow storms. "None of us were prepared for the nude beach down at the next hotel or the rastafarian experience, if you catch my drift,"
