Styx teams with Larry The Cable Guy for seven shows

Laugh. Rock. Seriously Tour starts March 21st in Fargo, ND

Legendary Platinum rockers Styx and comedy legend Larry the Cable Guy are joining forces for the first time ever to rock and Gir-R-Done. They’re coming together for seven unforgettable nights of hits and jokes billed as “Laugh. Rock. Seriously.” starting March 21st in Fargo, ND at the Scheels Arena. The short trek will bring them to Minot, ND on March 22nd, Billings, MT on March 23rd, Lincoln, NE on March 27th, Sioux City, IA on March 28th, Cedar Rapids, IA on March 29th and Champaign, IL on March 30th. Tickets for the shows go on sale Friday, November 30th at 10 am local time at

“We first ran into Larry the Cable Guy at a convenience store in Sarasota, Florida many moons ago,” says Styx guitarist/singer Tommy Shaw. “Now we are pairing up for a fun night of music and comedy, something we could all use a big dose of! I’m ready! Are you? Let’s do this!!!”

Larry the Cable Guy, on the other hand, has a hidden agenda as to why he is performing the shows. As he explains, “Ever since I ran into Tommy at a convenience store in Florida, I’ve always wanted to work some shows with the iconic band Styx. Not only because their music has been a soundtrack to my life, but also to try and get back the 18 bucks I loaned him for Honeybuns and coffee from that day in Florida.”

In addition to these shows, Styx is already starting to map out their on-going headlining tour in support of their critically acclaimed 16th album, The Mission, which was released June 16, 2017 on the band’s label, Alpha Dog 2T/UMe. At a very special tour stop, Styx will be performing the album, which critics have called “a masterpiece” in its entirety for the first time ever on Sunday, January 20th at The Pearl at Palms Casino Resort as part of a two-act concert event. The second act will feature all of Styx’s classic hits.

Tickets are $49.95, $69.95, $79.95 and $129.95, plus applicable fees, which are on sale now. Doors open at 7 pm, the show starts at 8 pm, and guests under 21 must be accompanied by an adult. Tickets can be purchased at the Pearl Concert Theater box office, any Station Casinos Rewards Center or online at
