It is always great to welcome our favorite rock bands to the valley and on Friday, September 15, 2017 we will have an opportunity to enjoy one of the all-time best, Styx! Headlining at The Show at the opulent Agua Caliente Resort Casino this iconic 6-man group has had some of the biggest hits in the industry. Songs like Lady, Babe, The Best of Times, Mr. Roboto, Show Me The Way, and Don’t Let It End have forged a reputation for versatility and power that is hard to equal.
Styx has had 4 consecutive albums that were certified platinum and 16 top 40 singles with 8 of those reaching Top 10 status. They are probably best known for blending their unique style of pop rock and hard rock and incorporating elements of musical theater and rock opera. It has given them a unique sound all their own that keeps audiences coming back for more. Originally from Chicago, the band formed in 1972 with their Wooden Nickel recordings followed by The Serpent Is Rising in 1973 and Man of Miracles in 1974. These recordings showcased the powerful and complex organ, guitar, vocal and percussion solos for which Styx is famous.
In the late 1970s and early 1980s the band broke into mainstream popularity releasing Kilroy Was Here in 1983 which capitalized on their rock opera sound. The album went platinum in 1983 and spawned two Top 10 hits one of which was the synthesizer spectacular, Mr. Roboto and the other, the power ballad Don’t Let It End. It is safe to say that Styx fans are everywhere so expect The Show to be packed to the rafters for this much-anticipated concert here in the Coachella Valley.
The Agua Caliente Resort is the ideal spot for a luxurious weekend of pampering in their incredible spa, dining on gourmet cuisine at any one of the several restaurant choices, and relaxing by the pool. There is plenty of gaming before and after the concert and you never need to leave the property at all if you are craving a weekend of no driving and plenty of relaxation. Go out and make it a great week as we head into the fall season, a new academic year for those still in school, and welcome our snowbirds back from their summer escape from the heat. Don’t miss a chance to enjoy the luxurious amenities of the Agua Caliente Resort and the fabulous sounds of Styx on September 15th.
