Styx, REO, Felder Rock Bangor Waterfront [PHOTOS + VIDEO]
Classic rock returned to Bangor Sunday night with Styx, REO Speedwagon and former Eagles' guitarist Don Felder performing on the waterfront stage.
Felder, who helped pen some of the Eagles' greatest hits, opened the show with the classic "Already Gone" and charged through a 10-song set including "Take It Easy" (with Tommy Shaw of Styx) and ending with "Hotel California."
Styx had the crowd at Darling's Waterfront Pavilion on its feet from the moment they took the stage with "Gone, Gone, Gone" from the band's new concept album, "The Mission."
Behind guitarists Shaw, James Young and keyboardist Lawrence Gowan, Styx slowly rolled through their set, about half of the songs from which came from the band's "The Grand Illusion" which is marking its 40th anniversary. The crowd danced along to "Too Much Time On My Hands," "Come Sail Away" and "Renegade."
REO Speedwagon closed the show with a 14-song set including the familiar tunes "Take It On The Run," "Can't Fight This Feeling," "Keep On Loving You" and "Time For Me To Fly."
