Larry the Cable Guy and Styx will play Lincoln — together

November 27, 2018

We’re not making this up.

Larry the Cable Guy, the stand-up comic, and Styx, the “Come Sail Away” rock band, will play in Lincoln. Together. At the same show.

No joke. (There will be some jokes. But you get what we mean.)

The comedy/rock hybrid show will come to Pinnacle Bank Arena on March 27 for a show billed as “Laugh. Rock. Seriously.”

Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday via Ticketmaster.

“We first ran into Larry the Cable Guy at a convenience store in Sarasota, Florida, many moons ago,” Styx guitarist/singer Tommy Shaw said in a press release.

“I’ve always wanted to work some shows with the iconic band Styx. Not only because their music has been a soundtrack to my life, but also to try and get back the 18 bucks I loaned him for honeybuns and coffee from that day in Florida,” Larry the Cable Guy said.

Born Dan Whitney in Pawnee City, Nebraska, Larry the Cable Guy has become a massively popular comedian with hit films, bestselling books and platinum-selling comedy specials. Whitney still lives in Nebraska.

With songs such as “Lady,” “The Best of Times,” “Too Much Time on My Hands,” “Renegade,” “Mr. Roboto” and “Show Me the Way,” Styx has earned six platinum albums and has sold more than 17.5 million albums in the U.S.
