Styx singer/guitarist [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Tommy Shaw[/lastfm] sums up the upcoming summit of Midwest rock royalty, saying, “It’s gonna be a Twang Fest of screaming guitars and big, sing-along choruses that continue to be the soundtrack for the misbehavior of our collective fan base.”
“In other words, a real good time.”
