Styx and Don Felder offer too much good stuff
It has become common practice in recent years for rock bands—regardless of the depth of their own catalog—to sprinkle a song or two from artists they admire into their concert sets. On occasion, particularly when a band passes through the hometown of the admired artist, there will be a surprise onstage collaboration. Taking this concept to new heights last year were veteran rockers Styx and longtime Eagles guitarist Don Felder. After sharing a stage for a song or two multiple times over the years, the two joined forces for a mini-residency at The Venetian in Las Vegas titled Renegades in the Fast Lane.
The five-show engagement, which featured an exclusive set peppered with hits from both bands, was such a success that Styx and Felder are back this week for a second go-round. That means, in essence, a two-for-one concert in which such Styx staples as “Fooling Yourself (The Angry Young Man),” “Come Sail Away” and “Too Much Time on My Hands” will be countered by Eagles classics like “Take It Easy,” “The Long Run,” “Life in the Fast Lane,” “Hotel California” and “Heartache Tonight.” The downside to such a strong set list? A bathroom break likely means missing a favorite song. Plan accordingly!
The Venetian, 8 p.m. Jan. 31 & Feb. 2-3, starting at $59 plus tax and fee. 702.414.9000
