Styx Extend 2012 US 'Gran Illusion/Pieces of Eight' Tour

Styx Extend 2012 US 'Gran Illusion/Pieces of Eight' Tour -

Following on from their very successful 'Grand Illusion/Pieces of Eight' tour, Styx have now announced they'll be extending the U.S leg of the tour with a series of shows that'll keep them out on the road for the duration of the year, reports Ultimate Classic Rock.

The tour will feature performances of the band's 1977 album 'The Grand Illusion' and its 1978 follow-up, 'Pieces of Eight,' in their entirety, along with other classic hits from the Chicago prog-rockers. Fans can expect to hear singles and album hits such as 'Come Sail Away', 'Renegade', 'Blue Collar Man' and many more.

"This is the most unique Styx concert ever," says singer/guitarist Tommy Shaw. "It's a hybrid experience of enjoying the artistry of the vinyl album and the energy and of our live performance.  Some (of these) songs have never been performed live!"
