Styx, Foreigner and former Eagles guitarist Don Felder are teaming up for a three-month rock ‘n’ roll tour that will start in Oklahoma City and end in California.
The tour will be called The Soundtrack of Summer and will feature the best from all three co-headliners, Billboard reported.
Combined the three acts have sold over 250 albums worldwide and have reached number one on the charts 36 times.
Styx guitarist James “J.Y.” Young talked about what it is like to head out on the road with such big names in the music industry. “I look at it like we’re a bunch of old heavyweight fighters getting together, It’s very exciting to be out there together, 30 years after we all had No. 1 albums and everything. And having (Felder), who was an obvious contributor to the writing side of the Eagles and does lots of Eagles songs in his show, that will make a nice complement. It has the potential to be the most successful of anything we’ve ever done with us in a co-headline position like this.”
Ultimate Classic Rock reported that Styx and Foreigner have shared the stage before, the groups went out on tour back in 2010 on the Union Tour.
Full tour dates and additional information can be found on the official website for the tour, Soundtrack of Summer.
