Styx co-founder Dennis DeYoung has rolled out his rescheduled tour dates with over a dozen shows pushed for later this year and 2021. At the concerts, DeYoung will be performing Styx's 1977 classic The Grand Illusion in its entirely, along with a healthy dose of the band's hits, and selections from his new solo album 26 East: Volume 1.
Dennis DeYoung admitted that writing his legendary Styx tunes was done primarily to inspire himself: “The human experience is not that different. And particularly now, at this point of my life, we all long for that moment in our individual lives where things seemed simpler, innocent and we didn't have the responsibilities and the burden of actually growing up and being an adult. And I was saying that to an audience when I was probably in my early-30's, and generally speaking, the audience was probably between the ages of 15 and 20. Remember; I was writing those songs for myself so many times to remind myself what I should be thinking. How I should be feeling. I was trying to buoy my own spirits.”
