LIMA — If you were in high school through the late ‘70s or early ‘80s, chances are you attended a dance with a theme from one of Styx’s songs. Guests will have the chance to re-live their youth when Styx appears Tuesday night at Veterans Memorial Civic Center.
The band formed in Chicago in 1972. It is said that they chose the name Styx because it was the only one that none of them hated.
“They’re a fantastic classic rock band and their live performances are known to be extraordinary. They are definitely a fantastic live act. They’re hits are endless,” said Abe Ambroza, CEO of the Civic Center.
The audience will hear hits such as “Lady,” “Come Sail Away,” “Babe,” “The Best of Times,” “Too Much Time on My Hands” and “Mr. Roboto.”
“It’s going to be a long night of some of the greatest hits by Styx with a fantastic light show. Their performance is incredible. I can’t say enough great things. It really is top notch entertainment,” said Ambroza. “I don’t even know what their grand finale is. Is it ‘Come Sail Away,’ is it ‘Lady,’ is it ‘The Best of Times,’ I honestly don’t know what they’ll do,” said Ambroza.
