For those who didn't grow up during the heyday of the late '70s and early '80s, listening to the bombastic arena rock and power ballads of Journey, Rush and Def Leppard, the closest thing anyone younger than 20 has come to the music of Styx is in the 2003 comedy “Old School.” In the movie the Dan Band played a snippet of “Lady” in a hilarious, profanity-filled mash-up with Bonnie Tyler's “Total Eclipse of the Heart.” Despite following the tried and true template that's come to define VH1's “Behind the Music,” leaders James Young and Tommy Shaw still have plenty of loyal fans who are willing to follow them to the very subterranean river the group is named after. Sure to play the recognizable hits such as “Come Sail Away,” “Mr. Roboto” and a new single, “Can't Stop Rockin,'” recorded alongside tourmates REO Speedwagon, Styx performs at the Richmond Coliseum on Tuesday, Nov. 3, at 7 p.m. $30-$70. 780-4970.
