    Styx made their return to Nashville, TN to perform another concert at the historic Ryman Auditorium.  We really didn’t know who enjoyed this show more, the fans or Tommy Shaw getting to perform on the former Grand Ole Opry stage again.  This show was mostly a greatest hits concert with a few of the older FM album cuts thrown in for fun (as it should be).  Enjoy Mike Arnold’s concert review as he takes you through the set list to describe Styx’s Nashville concert.

        Nashville, TN seems to a regular tour stop for Styx as they performed in concert on Thursday November 8th at the Ryman Auditorium.  The fans in attendance were ready for another visit by one of the best live performers in the music business as they gave an excellent set at the full, but not sold-out, Ryman Auditorium.  Our guest photographer, Samantha Shrader, lent us her talent once again…  Enjoy the photos!

            Concert Blast was invited to cover the dual Classic Rock Headline Tour with STYX and YES.  Being fans of both bands and having been covering Styx on every visit to Nashville for the last three trips, we were looking forward to another fun night of classic rock hits at Nashville’s newest amphitheatre, The Woods at Fontanel. 

            Mike Arnold, Brian Hasbrook, and James Downing were on hand to share the co-host podcast  duties on this special night.

                        While the concert-touring season has slowed down for the winter, I thought it would be nice to show our listening audiences what we went through in 2010.  I created multiple videos of our experiences with a month by month journey of our adventures.

                        Here’s Part 6, the final chapter of our 2010 Concert Blast Posts.  This video takes you through our experiences of October through December.

                                On Thursday, November 11th, Mike Arnold and James Downing of Concert Blast reviewed the Styx concert at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, TN as they made a stop on their Grand Illusion / Pieces Of Eight tour. 

                                This was a different and unique concert as Styx performed two sets and an encore.  Set one was nothing but the entire Grand Illusion album in order and set two included only the Pieces of Eight album in order.
