Styx veteran Dennis DeYoung brings ‘Grand Illusion’ to The Palace
Styx founding member Dennis DeYoung will bring his “Grand Illusion 40th Anniversary Album Tour” to The Palace Theatre in Greensburg at 8 p.m. Oct. 19.
DeYoung will perform the 1977 triple-platinum album in its entirety, along with Billboard Top Ten hits like “Lady,” “Babe,” “Come Sail Away,” “Too Much Time on My Hands,” “Blue Collar Man,” “Suite Madame Blue” and other songs from the legendary rock band, many of which he wrote.
DeYoung left -- or was forced out of -- Styx in 1999 due to creative differences with other members and his own health issues. He went on to record original music and to perform the band’s songs with a backing band.
Styx has continued to perform with original members James “JY” Young, Tommy Shaw, Chuck Panozzo and Todd Sucherman, along with Lawrence Gowan and Ricky Phillips.
DeYoung’s latest release was “Dennis DeYoung and the Music of Styx -- Live in Los Angeles” in 2014.
Tickets for the show in the theater at 21 W. Otterman St. are $38-$68.
