Rock Legends Styx Coming to the Peoria Civic Center
PEORIA – Multi-platinum rockers Styx plays the Peoria Civic Center Theater on Thursday, June 27 at 7:30 pm.
Averaging 100 shows per year, each Styx live show is better than the last. As the first group to accomplish four consecutive triple-platinum albums their international fame is undeniable. With over four decades of revolutionary hits the band’s music draws on an unlimited cache of ways to immerse one’s mind and body in their signature sound.
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 finally released June 16, 2017 on the band’s label, Alpha Dog 2T/UMe. It debuted on various Billboard charts, including: #6 Top Rock Albums, #11 Physical Albums, #11 Vinyl Albums, #13 Current Albums, #14 Billboard Top Albums, #16 Retail, #17 Mass Merch/Non-Traditional, #29 Digital Albums, and #45 Billboard 200 (includes catalog and streaming). The highly anticipated reissue of THE MISSION was released on July 27, 2018 via Alpha Dog 2T/UMe. The two-disc package includes a CD of the original album, as well as a Blu-ray of THE MISSION mixed in 5.1 Surround Sound by singer/guitarist TOMMY SHAW and producer Will Evankovich accompanied by stunning visualizations for each of the album’s 14 songs based on the album artwork. Other extras on the Blu-ray include: “The Making of The Mission Documentary” of exclusive interviews of SHAW and Evankovich, four music videos—“Gone Gone Gone” (official video), “Gone Gone Gone” (video created by NASA), “Radio Silence” (lyric video) and “Radio Silence” (live video from Syracuse, NY)—and three hi-res audio playback modes.
