Perennial Classic Rock Faves and road-tested veterans, STYX, REO SPEEDWAGON, and Guitarist DON FELDER have announced plans to once again tour together after last Summer's successful (and fun!) 'United We Rock' Tour. STYX is currently enjoying a 'residency' (w/ Don Felder) in Las Vegas with a show titled, 'Renegades in the Fast Lane,' at The Venetian Hotel/Theater, and after their Vegas commitments are satisfied, the 2 acts will join up with REO for a 2 month long jaunt. (see itinerary below) STYX released their latest album, 'The Mission' in June of this year, marking their first album of new, studio material in 14 years, and STYX's TOMMY SHAW said in an interview with Ultimate Classic Rock that completing the album necessitated a sizable 'logistical effort...' In that interview, Tommy Shaw explained, "Most of the time we’re busy either touring or trying to go home and do that sort of thing,” he said. “So a lot of it was just sort of going on as this parallel universe. It wasn’t until we did the pre-production recordings here at the house. I think that’s where the rubber really met the road. Because people had just been sort of working independently on parts and things like that. When we got here, all of the sudden, we’re all sitting in a room and we’re playing, let’s hear how it all sounds. When you get [drummer] Todd [Sucherman] back there, all of the sudden it goes to another level. Then Ricky Phillips comes in and it’s like, he put the Ricky Phillips stamp on it."  Of the sound of the newest STYX album, Tommy Shaw said that "the idea was, let’s be as true to the Styx sound. Our favorite Styx sound, which for most of us, is that era around The Grand Illusion and Pieces of Eight. And Equinox too.” Rock On Styx! (& REO & Don Felder!)
