For these special performances, STYX–Tommy Shaw (vocals, guitars), James “JY” Young (vocals, guitars), Lawrence Gowan (vocals, keyboards), Todd Sucherman (drums) and Ricky Phillips (bass), along with the occasional surprise appearance by original bassist Chuck Panozzo—has created an exclusive set list and brand new stage production. Don Felder is also working on some exciting plans of his own for the residency. The multi-show run will pay tribute to both STYX’s and Don Felder’s combined 45-plus years as one of the most successful rock and roll bands in history and one of rock’s most illustrious guitar legends.

“I have been an admirer of Don Felder’s unique gifts as a guitar player for decades,” says STYX’s James “JY” Young. “Finally meeting him and having him on the same bill as us in 2014 was great fun. He’s like a long lost brother to me. We are going to have some great fun and nights of musical excellence sharing the stage with Don at The Venetian. Can’t wait!!!”

STYX’s Tommy Shaw continues, “Sharing the stage with Don Felder over the years in various situations has always been a blast, a smile fest, where the joy of playing music is front and center. That’s the way we do it in STYX too, so you can see why we are all so excited to be coming together for our first Las Vegas installation at The Venetian. Good friends, good music, it’s gonna a treat for us all!”

“I’m so excited to be sharing the stage at The Venetian with my good friends STYX,” said Don Felder. “This is going to be one ‘ROCKING’ show in the most ‘ROCKING’ city in the U.S. Come join the fun and party with STYX and I this January. See you there.”

“We’re thrilled to welcome two legends of rock to The Venetian Theatre when STYX and Don Felder take the stage in January,” said Bobby Reynolds, Vice President of Booking for AEG Live. “Fans can look forward to a night full of hits along with some surprise production elements. It’s going to be five nights of incredible rock ‘n roll.”

Additionally, September 2 marks the long-awaited release date of STYX: LIVE AT THE ORLEANS ARENA LAS VEGAS on DVD, Blu-ray and Digital Formats via Eagle Rock Entertainment. It captures the band performing in July 2014 such fan favorites as: “Too Much Time On My Hands.” “Fooling Yourself (The Angry Young Man),” “Renegade,” and more. It also includes a special surprise visit from DON FELDER for a rousing performance of “Blue Collar Man (Long Nights).”
