They got some crazy little women there... Sunday night in Kansas City was a special night. KC was the first city to go on sale for "The Return to Paradise Tour".; Their overwhelming response (6,500 tickets sold before noon the first day) sent waves throughout the industry that the STYX tour was going to be huge. Dennis DeYoung ran down a list of all the different venues Styx has played in KC over the years thanking the fans for their support over the years. "Boy do we have a history in THIS town!", he laughed...
The kids are all right... Tommy and Jeanne had another reason to be excited Sunday night in Kansas City. 200 teenagers from "Crossroads", a teen chemical dependency recovery group they are involved with, were there as guests of the band. Founder, Bob Meehan, author of "Beyond the Yellow Brick Road: Your Children and Drugs" and a close friend of Tommy and Jeanne's was there too. It was the first STYX concert for Bob and the teenagers and their enthusiasm was deserving of its own area code. When the show ended Bob, Tommy, Jeanne and Chuck went out to where they had all gathered. Once the thunder of their cheers and chants subsided, Chuck spoke to them from the heart. "I lost my brother to a disease," he said. "And not just last week. It took him from me over 2 years ago..." Chuck continued, praising these teens for their decision not to use drugs and alcohol. When he finished they responded with cheers and an outpouring of love for Chuck that moved most everyone there to tears. "It was MIGHTY!", exclaimed
