Young (vocals, guitars, keyboards); Tommy Shaw (vocals, guitars); Todd Sucherman (drums); Lawrence Gowan (vocals, keyboards); Ricky Phillips (bass, backing vocals) and Chuck Panozzo (bass guitar), showcase just why Styx is considered on of the greatest American progressive rock band since their inception in 1972.

My husband and I grew up listening to and still love STYX! We loved seeing a live performance on the STYX The Grand Illusion/Pieces of Eight LIVE and loved reminiscing about all the memories we have with these songs. 

STYX The Grand Illusion/Pieces of Eight LIVE would make a wonderful addition for anyone who enjoys STYX! It isn't often these days you can catch them in concert, they are currently on tour though, now you can watch a concert on DVD or Blu-ray anytime you wish!

 Thank you toSTYX for my sample used in this review, opinions are honest.  Review by Michelle.
