ROANOKE, Va. – Two big-time music acts are coming to downtown Roanoke this spring.

On May 24, Styx is set to perform, followed a week later by Randy Houser.

Styx has been performing since 1972 and has created countless hits since then. In 1977, Styx released Grand Illusion, their breakout album that sold over 3 million copies and was propelled by singles "Come Sail Away" and "Fooling Yourself."

Houser has topped the charts in his country career with "How Country Feels," "Runnin’ Outta Moonlight" and more.

Joining Houser on May 31 will be Thompson Square. The country group has been honored as Vocal Duo of the Year by both the ACM and CMA.

Early bird tickets, which go on sale Friday, cost $27 each.

That price is available for a week until prices jump up to $37 and then $42 at the gate.

Both concerts begin at 7 p.m., with gates opening at 5 p.m.
