This year the Kalamazoo State Theatre is celebrating 90 years.  Once again we look back at a great show from the past.  This time we look back to when Styx played in Kalamazoo in 2009 and 2014.

According to, Styx played the State Theatre in Kalamazoo on January 25th, 2009 and they returned on December 4th, 2014.

The lineup for the band for both shows included Tommy Shaw, James "J.Y." Young, Chuck Panozzo, Todd Sucherman, Ricky Phillips and Lawrence Gowan.

I could not find a setlist for the show in 2009 but I assume that it is very hits heavy like the one the band did in 2014.

The 2014 show kicked off with "The Grand Illusion" and ran through many of their classics.  They wrapped it all up with an encore of "Rockin' The Paradise" and "Renegade".

I was lucky enough to find a clip from the show in 2014.

Unfortunately I could not locate any clips from the 2009 show.

Two great shows from the history of the Kalamazoo State Theatre.  Do you remember both?  Any memories from these two shows?
