Mar 23, 2009
Milwaukee, WI—Milwaukee Admirals President Jon Greenberg announced today that national recording artist Styx will perform at the team’s annual Classic Rock Night presented by Lee Jeans and Miller Lite this Saturday, March 28th following the team’s 7:30 pm game against the Iowa Chops.
“We are extremely excited to bring one of my all-time favorites to Milwaukee for this season’s Classic Rock Night,” said Greenberg. “I am excited for Styx to continue our tradition of giving our fans first-class entertainment both on and off the ice.”
As the first band to ever have four consecutives albums certified multi-platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America, Styx has been churning out hits since their inception in 1972 with their most recent success being “I Am The Walrus” in 2004. Their breakthrough album was The Grand Illusion in 1977, and reached triple platinum status, and featured the top ten hit “Come Sail Away.”
Styx most recently toured with Boston in the summer of 2008, and has toured in the past with the likes of Def Leppard, REO Speedwagon, and Thin Lizzy. Tommy Shaw, James “J.Y” Young, Todd Sucherman, Lawrence Gowan, Ricky Phillips and Chuck Panozzo currently comprise the Styx line-up.
Styx has stayed involved in sports, with pre-game performances at the 2001 and 2003 Super Bowls and the inclusion of their song “Renegade” in a Heineken commercial featuring Brad Pitt, one of the most talked about commercials of Super Bowl XXXIX.
