The landmark concert was recorded November 9th, 2010 at the historic
Orpheum Theater in Memphis, on the tour that saw Styx - Tommy Shaw, James
“JY” Young, Chuck Panozzo,
Lawrence Gowan, Ricky Phillips and Todd
Sucherman - perform both of their classic albums, The Grand Illusion
and Pieces Of Eight, in their entirety for the first time. The 20-song,
two-hour and 11-minute presentation features stunning high-definition
visuals accenting the complex musical arrangements recorded in DTS-HD
Master Audio, Dolby Digital 5.1, and LPCM Stereo.
“This is the most magnificent piece of video we’ve done,” proclaims
guitarist James “JY” Young. “It’s really exciting for me for it to
finally reach the airwaves of Palladia and VH1 Classic. Our two biggest
selling albums performed live in their entirety, all captured in
state-of-the-art high definition is something we’re extremely proud of.
The collective skill set of the people involved in this project rivals
NASA in its heyday.”
As singer/guitarist Tommy Shaw
continues, “We loved creating a show
around these two albums. It was a joyful challenge to match the mojo of
the songs we've been playing for years against the edgier newness of the
ones that had not been performed since the day they were recorded. And
because the songs were sequenced for the album listener, it made for a
completely different experience for the fans."
