TAMPA - Styx, Foreigner and Foghat will take the stage at the Ford Amphitheatre on Saturday, Sept. 23, 6:30 p.m.

Styx was the first band to have four consecutive triple platinum albums ("The Grand Illusion," "Pieces Of Eight," "Cornerstone," and No. 1 "Paradise Theatre"). Since their debut in 1972, they've also earned double platinum, platinum and five gold albums. "Lady" was the first of 16 Top 40's, among, which also includes "Blue Collar Man (Long Nights)" and "Fooling Yourself."

The video for their 1981 Top 10 single "Too Much Time on my Hands" aired in the first hour of MTV's life. Big Bang Theory, released in May 2005, features their hit remake of "I Am The Walrus," and charted at No. 46, making it the fourth consecutive decade that Styx has had an album in the Top 50.

After a 1999 metamorphosis, Styx re-established itself as a dynamic live act over the course of 600-plus shows and four new live albums. Original members Tommy Shaw (vocals, guitars) and James "JY" Young (vocals, guitars) along with Lawrence Gowan (vocals, keyboards), Todd Sucherman (drums) and Ricky Phillips (bass guitar, backing vocals) continue to tour the world.

Foreigner, the band, best known for all-time rock favorites including "Feels Like the First Time," "Cold as Ice," "Hot Blooded," "Double Vision,""Dirty white Boys," "Head Games," "Urgent," "Waiting For a Girl Like You," "I Want to Know What Love Is" and a truckload more of hits over nearly three decades, returns revitalized with new members and a major summer tour.

Foreigner founder, songwriter, lead guitarist, keyboardist and producer Mick Jones has assembled an exciting lineup featuring Jason Bonham on drums, bass guitarist Jeff Pilson (ex-Dokken, ex-Dio) and vocalist Kelly Hansen (ex-Hurricane) joining forces with longtime keyboardist Jeff Jacobs and rhythm guitarist and saxophonist Tom Gimbel. The set lists will include all the beloved songs and die-hard fans will often be treated to long-absent favorites like "At War With the World," "Say You Will" and "Woman in Black." Also, Foreigner will pay tribute to Bonham's father, the late John Bonham, by performing "Whole Lotta Love" and possibly more Led Zeppelin highlights.

Blues-rock band Foghat formed in the early 1970s and is known for their hits "Slow Ride," "Fool For The City," "Drivin' Wheel" and "I'll Be Standing By."

Reserved seat tickets are $47.50, $37.50 and $25. Lawn tickets also are available for $15. For tickets, visit www.livenation.com or www.ticketmaster.com. To charge by phone, call 898-2100.
