07-11-2019 12:00:00 07-11-2019 12:00:00 America/New_York STYX: On a Mission | 8 PM On November 7, 2019, for one night only, legendary rock band STYX will be performing "THE MISSION" in its entirety, the album that critics have called "a masterpiece" as part of a two-act concert event at the NYCB Theatre at Westbury. 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. The second act will feature all of STYX's classic hits. This will be the only version of this show that STYX will be performing on the East Coast in 2019. ARTIST INFO The six men comprising Styx have committed to rocking the Paradise together with audiences far and wide by entering their second decade of averaging over 100 shows a year, and each one of them is committed to making the next show better than the last. "Every night, we go on that magic carpet ride together," observes original bassist Chuck Panozzo, who joins the band on tour as often as he can. "The thing I always like the most is the immediate response we get when playing live," adds guitarist and vocalist James "JY" Young, an integral force of nature in the band since its 1972 inception and the one who helped steer the band to landing its first recording contract with Wooden Nickel Records. "And this is as good a live band as there is. Someone once told me, 'I've seen Paul McCartney, I've seen the Rolling Stones, I've seen U2, I've seen the Police. But my favorite show last year was Styx.' I like to say we're the best-kept secret — but perhaps we're not anymore." Notes guitarist, vocalist, and emotional centerpiece Tommy Shaw, "There are so many portals to reach your musical soul, and our live show is like a religious experience where people come to commune and testify. We have a pretty sophisticated audience, and we really respect that. We didn't used to have people who would come see every show, but now they're coming back again and again for more. And we owe it to our fans to continually rehearse, prepare, and improve http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=362909 Theatre at Westbury Theatre at Westbury
