One of the top Classic Rock Bands from Chicago decided to pull out a big hit they haven't played in 35 years.

The state of Illinois has a great history of Classic Rock Bands like Cheap Trick, REO Speedwagon, Chicago, and Styx to name a few.

Their live shows are staples of the summer concert season.

As each of them fire up their tours, it's always cool to see what surprises they are going to bring out this year.

Well, Styx didn't disappoint with a huge shocker.

According to blabbermouth.com,

"At the opening show of their summer tour with Tesla and Joan Jett & The Blackhearts at FivePoint Amphitheatre in Irvine, California, veteran rockers Styx began their encore with "Mr. Roboto," the first time the group has performed the song live in its entirety in 35 years."

For the casual fan, this might not seem like a special deal but for the diehards it is.

There is no love lost between Styx and their former singer Dennis DeYoung. The "Kilroy Was Here" album era (featuring the song) is one the remaining members of the band would like to forget.

Maybe, enough fans requested it.

Luckily with technology, we can check it out.

If you want to see it live, they have a show in Chicago on July 7th at Huntington Bank Pavilion at Northerly Island.
