REDDING Calif. - On Sunday, August 20, STYX’s headlined a show at the Redding Civic Auditorium near the massive Carr Fire.

In response to the devastation, the band made a donation of $5,000 to the Shasta Regional Community Foundation via their Rock To The Rescue 501(c)3 organization, which will be matched by the band themselves as well as venue out of net proceeds from the show up to $15,000.

STYX bass player Ricky Phillips is from Redding and grew up in the town. Read his statement below: 

“Hey Redding, 

This is Ricky Phillips from the rock band STYX and we’re coming to the Civic Auditorium on August 19. Having grown up in Redding, I was quite taken by the fact that my band and management wanted to immediately make a donation to Redding and our neighboring communities of Shasta County who have been affected by the Carr Fire. Partnering with Shasta Regional Community Foundation, we have been searching for ways to assist even further. A portion of our proceeds from the show at the Civic is now a part of this effort, and the Civic Auditorium is making a separate donation as well. There was some heartfelt discussion between STYX management and representatives in Redding. The result, what could have been a canceled show, was eventually deemed necessary as ‘a needed and welcome distraction...a place for unity...and even celebration.’ Whatever the reason for attendance, I can promise you a kick-ass rock show and a great evening of entertainment. We have just come off of a coast-to-coast tour promoting the success of our latest release, THE MISSION, and we’re excited to be playing an evening of STYX classic hits for Y'all that will span the decades from the ‘70s to the present. On behalf of my brothers in STYX, we are looking forward to the Redding performance and to be that ‘distraction’ at this sensitive time in our Redding history.”


The concert was a rocking show that was a full house of excitement as the band put on a fantastic show.

In total, the Shasta Regional Community Foundation has raised around 3 million dollars for Carr Fire relief.
