Styx will return in 2020 with Atlanta Symphony Orchestra

Styx is a familiar sight most years, as the band’s dedication to touring hasn’t waned.

But when the “Renegade” rockers return to Atlanta in 2020, they will be joined by the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra.

As part of the ASO’s 75th anniversary celebration, the musicians will perform with Styx on April 19 at Ameris Bank Amphitheatre in Alpharetta. 

Tickets, priced at $39-$99, will go on sale at noon Dec. 20 via www.ticketmaster.com and the box offices at the amphitheater and Woodruff Arts Center. 

Styx has married its music with an orchestra on numerous occasions; in 2006, the band released an album recorded with the Contemporary Youth Orchestra of Cleveland, and the band has also performed with the Nashville Symphony.

In May, Styx visited Cadence Bank Amphitheatre at Chastain Park for a sold-out show of hits.
