The St. Augustine Amphitheatre will present classic rock stars STYX and Don Felder (formerly of The Eagles) live in concert April 13. Tickets for the event go on sale Jan. 26 at 10 a.m.
STYX, featuring Tommy Shaw, James “JY” Young, Chuck Panozzo, Todd Sucherman, Lawrence Gowan and Ricky Phillips, has averaged over 100 shows a year since 1999. Founded in Chicago in 1972, STYX is the first band in rock history to boast four consecutive certified multimillion-selling albums in a row: 1977’s “The Grand Illusion,” 1978’s “Pieces of Eight,” 1979’s “Cornerstone” and 1981’s “Paradise Theatre.”
STYX draws from over four decades of popular chart hits, singalongs and deep cuts. The band's set covers a wide range of styles. From "The Grand Illusion" to the "Blue Collar Man," from "Lady" to "Miss America” and from "Man in the Wilderness" to "Crystal Ball," the band attempts to immerse one's mind and body in its signature sound.
Don Felder is a former lead guitarist for The Eagles, a band that set records for "Their Greatest Hits" (1971-1975) compilation, which sold over 29 million copies in the U.S. alone and won the RIAA top-selling album of the 20th century. Felder and The Eagles have sold more than 83.5 million albums. A member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame since 1988, Felder served as a guitarist for The Eagles for 27 years. He co-wrote the band's biggest hit, "Hotel California," along with fan favorites like "Victim of Love," “One of These Nights,” “New Kid in Town" and more. "Hotel California" was recently voted the No. 1 best 12-string guitar song in the world by Guitar World Magazine.
After leaving the group in 2001, Felder became a New York Times bestselling author for his confessional memoir, "Heaven and Hell: My Life in The Eagles."
Felder has also worked with other music stars such as The Bee Gees, Peter Frampton, Bob Seger, Michael Jackson, Boz Scaggs, Warren Zevon, Joni Mitchell, Stevie Nicks, Vince Gill, Stevie Wonder, Elton John, Paul Simon, Diana Ross and Barbra Streisand. Felder’s most recent release, entitled "The Road to Forever," features some of his closest friends like Crosby, Stills & Nash, Tommy Shaw (from STYX), Randy Jackson (American Idol), Steve Lukather and David Paich (Toto). The album’s single “Wash Away the Pain” reached No. 4 on the classic rock media charts.
