The Chicago-born Styx band is the final act in the Triple Play Concert Series. Concertgoers can look forward to top hits from the band, including "Lady" and "Come Sail Away" along with newer releases, such as "Pieces of Eight."
Last month New Lenox residents rocked out to Heart, led by vocalists Ann and Nancy Wilson, and by female country musician Sara Evans in June, as well as Night Ranger. This Labor Day weekend, the 1970s and '80s-famed band, Styx, is the headliner act. .
