Styx

STYX RETURNS TO THE DIAMOND CENTER.

“Domo arigato, Mr. Roboto” may be an integral part of pop culture, referenced on shows such as South Park and The Simpsons, but this signature song epitomizes the attitude held by this group of musicians, together known as Styx. With an openly hostile view of materialism, consumerism, and unemployment, Styx grew from their artsy progressive rock image into one of the country’s most famous arena rock groups ever. Coming out of Chicago in the early ‘60s and changing their name as new members were brought on, Styx eventually formed, hitting it big in 1974 with their breakthrough single “Lady.” They went on to produce some of the most well-known songs around, including “Come Sail Away,” “Babe,” “Blue Collar Man,” “Show Me the Way,” and of course, “Mr. Roboto.”

Styx’s biggest success came in 1981 with the release of their concept album Paradise Theater. The album reached the number one spot on the Billboard pop album charts and produced five hit singles, including “The Best of Times” and “Too Much Time on My Hands.” In addition to becoming their fourth multi-platinum album, Paradise Theater helped the band win a People’s Choice Award that same year. Despite several of the band members taking time to try out solo careers, Styx came back together in 1996 for the Return to Paradise tour. It was such a success that the group decided to unite for good and have since performed at Super Bowl pre-game shows, and as recently as 2012, re-recorded two discs’ worth of its classic hits—Regeneration Volume I & II.
