Styx and Yes 

Thursday, July 28, Eagle River Pavilion

If you get nostalgic for the halcyon days of summer, a co-headlining concert with Styx and Yes may make you dream of the daze of adolescence.

Known for their '70s prog-rock styles, both Styx and Yes found fans in the '80s by incorporating more pop into their music. Styx's 1983 concept album, Kilroy Was Here, wasn't a commercial success but the phrase "Domo arigato, Mr. Roboto" stuck. British band Yes paved a prog-rock path starting in the late '60s, but their own 1983 hit, "Owner of a Lonely Heart," put them on a new generation's radar.

In the past 30-plus years, both bands have carried on, and their stop in Eagle is part of their Progressive U.S. Tour. With newish albums to support, both Yes and Styx may garner even more new young fans and keep their place in pop culture. When South Park lampoons you (as they did with "Come Sail Away"), you know you've earned it.
