"STYX: The Grand Illusion/Pieces Of Eight Live"; DVD/2CD Out In January 2012

Two of the most beloved albums in the Styx catalog are 1977's "The Grand Illusion" and 1978's "Pieces Of Eight". Now, Eagle Rock Entertainment will release "STYX: The Grand Illusion/Pieces Of Eight Live" on DVD, Blu-Ray, and DVD/2CD on January 31st. This show was recorded November 9th, 2010 at the historic Orpheum Theater in Memphis, Tennessee, on the tour that saw them perform both these albums in their entirety for the first time. 

This 20-song two-hour and 11-minute presentation features stunning high-definition visuals accenting the complex musical arrangements recorded in DTS-HD Master Audio, Dolby Digital 5.1, and LPCM Stereo. The staging of these two multi-platinum albums and the fevered response makes this concert a must for all Styx fans. "The Grand Illusion/Pieces of Eight Live" also includes the bonus feature "Putting On The Show," an inside look at the people and equipment needed to stage such a massive spectacle. 

Selling millions of records worldwide since their 1972 Chicago inception, Styx have branded themselves as one of the greatest American progressive rock bands. The current line-up consists of James "J.Y." 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).
