STYX and Wilson's Venetian concerts will 'pay tribute' to their musical legacies
Oh mama, STYX is resuming its run at The Venetian on the Las Vegas Strip in 2022, and they’re adding some more fire power in the form of Heart’s Nancy Wilson.
The “Barracuda” queen will join her fellow Rock and Roll Hall of Famers on stage for a five-night engagement at The Venetian Theatre on January 28 and 29, and February 2, 4, and 5, 2022. Presale tickets will be available October 13 and go on sale to the public October 15 at 10 a.m. via The Venetian website.
Both STYX and Wilson dropped new albums in 2021 – the latter’s “You and Me” was released in May and the former’s “Crash of the Crown” (their 17th studio album) in July. Their Venetian concerts will “pay tribute” to their musical legacies, so that likely means hearing more of the familiar stuff with a couple new tracks sprinkled into the setlist.
The 2022 dates are also significant for STYX because the band is celebrating its 50th anniversary next year – their first album, the self-titled STYX, debuted in August 1972. Though STYX has undergone some lineup changes over the decades, founding member and guitarist James “JY” Young remains, along with longtime members Todd Sucherman, Ricky Phillips, and Lawrence Gowan. Fans can look forward to founding member and bassist Chuck Panozzo making an appearance (or several) as well.
