Today’s Blimp Time-Hop

A&M Records
A&M Records

39 years ago today, Styx played a sold out show at the Civic Center in Portland. They were on tour in support of the mega-album, The Grand IllusionThis stop in Blimpville happened on August 18, 1978, just weeks before the release of Pieces of Eight in September. So cool for Blimpsters to hear Come Sail Away, Fooling Yourself, the Grand Illusion and a new song called, Blue Collar Man live in concert. It was an historic night in the Summer of ’78 for sure and Styx were at the height of their powers.
There’s no list of songs on the ‘internets’ from this particular Portland show. Here’s one from the week before in Minnesota. It’s gotta be pretty close, right?

Styx Setlist St. Paul Civic Center, St. Paul, MN, USA 1978, Pieces of Eight

Styx returns Maine this weekend! They’ll be at Darling’s Waterfront Pavillion in Bangor on Sunday night with REO Speedwagon and Don Felder.

Check out the ‘live’ promo video of Fooling Yourself (The Angry Young Man) from 1978! It’s probably the best hair moment of their history too!
