Northfield, Ohio – The Hard Rock Rocksino Northfield Park literally packed the house earlier this week with the seminal rock group ” Styx “.

Styx, who’s string of commercial and critical hits  of the 1970’s and 1980’s paved the way  for a generation stopped by Hard Rock Live for a trip down memory lane and to create new ones. New ones you say , yes you heard right, new ones in the form of a brand new release with the physical copies of ” The Mission ” for fans to hear and live performances of several of the tracts .You know a band is a cultural phenomenon when modern television audiences have a hit television show ” That 70’s Show ” and use them a a major plot point in an episode .

I was excited to finally get a copy of ” The Mission ” a concept album about a planned mission to Mars in the very near future .  Look for a complete review of it but suffice to say for now ,the live versions went over with well with the audience . Future classics like ” Gone , Gone, Gone, ” opened the show.

My favorite Tommy Shaw song ” Blue Collar Man ” followed up next along  with ” The Grand Illusion ”  all of which prove why this band has had such sustainability over the decades and a huge dedication of fans. ” Radio Silence ” continued the musical feast from the new album along with   ” The Outpost ” .The fans favorites were played as well including the rebellious  ” Renegade “, the dreamy ” Come Sail Away ” and ” Angry Young Man ( Fooling Yourself ).

The band also did two you very special things that show , one playing a tribute to Tom Petty by playing a highlighted version of “Free Fallin” to a appreciative crowd .One other item was the band has a charity called ” Rock To The Rescue ” started by Tommy Shaw’s daughter Hannah in which  the band raised money by raffling off an autographed guitar and the funds go to a local charity and at this show is was the Akron Canton Regional Food Bank . The funds raised were enough for over 2000 meals.
