The shows will be held on January 28 and 29 and February 2, 4, and 5, 2022 and will include special guest, Rock & Roll Hall of Fame singer, Nancy Wilson.

“We are thrilled to announce that Nancy Wilson, the super talented singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist performer we’ve enjoyed as a member of Heart, will be joining STYX on stage when we return to the Venetian in Las Vegas for five nights: January 28, 29 and February 2,4 and 5. Talk about ‘these dreams’ coming true!!! Come join us!” said STYX singer/guitarist Tommy Shaw

“I’m so pleased to be part of the STYX plus Nancy Wilson collaboration. I think it’s going to be fun and really different from other shows,” adds Wilson.

The event will see Tommy Shaw (vocals, guitars), James “JY” Young (vocals, guitars), Lawrence Gowan (vocals, keyboards), Todd Sucherman (drums), and Ricky Phillips (bass), along with the occasional surprise appearance by original bassist Chuck Panozzo, come together on the exclusive setlist that is sure to encompass Styx’s greatest hits over the 50 years.

“Looking forward to collaborating with another artist in Las Vegas. We had great fun with Don Felder and are looking forward to rocking with Nancy Wilson,” shares STYX co-founding guitarist James “JY” Young.
