STYX was great, YES was ok..... STYX should have been the closing band. YES should cut down on the length of their songs (IE guitar solos) so they have more songs to their show. Steve Howe is still awesome but 20 min guitar solos get old......

Shane Alexander opened the show and boy! He was GOOD! Let's support our local artiest by listening to his songs, we really liked him. Styx, honestly, stole the show and provided great tune to dance to. YES, legendary as you remember it. Great...continued

This was a fabulous concert! "Styx" was energetic, youthful, and thoroughly entertaining. Lead singer Tommy had an amazing rapport with the audience. They loved him! Visuals were terrific and enhanced the performance. "Yes" blew our minds! Their...continued

Shane Alexander opened with 15 minutes of his own songs, solo acoustic guitar. I didn't know the songs, but he sounded pretty good. Styx played all the ones that you know. They were polished, perhaps a bit over-the-top with the stage antics, but...continued

Seats were great, the ticket line was fine.

The show was an excellent study on the importance of a good lead replacement. Both bands have gone through personel changes; one with great success and the other with disasterous results.

I...continued

The show was amazing. Who knew Styx was so AWESOME?? Truthfully, Yes can be a little indulgent -- but it's such a fantastic experience. The Greek. LOVE it!!

Seats were excellent. Styx was excellent. YES ended up being a big NO!!
I think that their green room was filled with 2%, Metamucil, and NoDoz. If you watch Jay Leno, their new lead (if you closed your eyes and simply heard him speak and sing)...continued

STYX Can still Rock! I think this was the bes rock show I have seen at the Greek in a long time! My 15 years old son was loving it too.

This had to be the concert bargain of the year so far. Styx sounded young and fresh. YES was amazing.

Best $15.00 concert so far this season. Both Styx and yes were great. Arrived early and $20.00 parking was the ticket to getting out quick.

Aside from the fact they didn't play "Rocking the Paradise" -- the Styx portion of the show was really fantastic. The band sounded great, they were having a blast on stage, and Tommy Shaw was really amazing. Yes, on the other hand... oh, boy....continued

Styx really rocked the house. Tight, polished, as good as ever. Yes unfortunately sounded old and tired, unrehearsed, and try as he might Benoit David just can't do Jon's vocals justice and sounded like he was really straining all night. Was a bit...continued

Exceeded my high expectations. We missed the opener, but both Styx and Yes haven't dropped anything.

A great night. Styx was sensational. Yes was a bit tired sounding.

Shane Alexander is someone I've never heard of before; he did about 20-30 min while people were still filing into the theatre. He is an able musician who, with exposure from this tour, will likely be a lot more known soon.

This was the first...continued

I've always loved the Greek Theater--it's open and airy, you're surrounded by trees and it's not so big. I got the tickets at the last minute and still got good aisle seats. I just wished Styx would sing the songs Dennis used to sing, then I...continued
