Dennis DeYoung to perform in Cucamonga; live CD/DVD due

On Oct. 21, Frontiers Music will release Dennis DeYoung And The Music Of Styx: Live In Los Angeles in 2CD/DVD, Blu-ray and digital formats, encompassing the greatest hits of Styx sung once again by the band's founding singer/songwriter/keyboardist. 

Recorded and filmed for this CD/DVD release and an October AXS-TV live concert special, these Styx songs were captured before an audience at the El Rey Theater in Los Angeles on March 18, 2014. The 2CD/DVD version is now available for pre-order on 

“If you are a Styx fan, this package covers all the hits in one great concert experience,” says DeYoung, who wrote and sang nearly all of that legendary band’s radio hits, as well as a number of solo hits. “The intimate setting of the historic El Rey theater was the perfect venue to see me and the band up close rockin’ these tunes.”

Using eight cameras in High Definition, the show features DeYoung performing the band’s catalog of classic rock hits that became a staple on radio during the 1970s and '80s. Among them: “Lady,” “Renegade,” “Blue Collar Man,” “Show Me The Way,” “Mr. Roboto,” “Too Much Time On My Hands,” “Babe,” “Best Of Times,” “Come Sail Away” and others.

DeYoung led the group through more than a dozen gold and platinum albums over 20 years and left in 1999. In addition to his success with Styx, DeYoung wrote and recorded several solo projects and did an album of Broadway standards after touring as Pontius Pilate in Jesus Christ Superstar.

The CD/DVD combo will be released on the same day An Evening With Dennis DeYoung And The Music Of Styx concert special airs on AXS-TV, on Oct. 21.

“To have this band and these songs on a Blu-Ray, DVD and two CD set is a dream come true,” says DeYoung. “I have to thank AXS-TV and Frontiers for this special opportunity.”
