Styx tours Beaumont

Tommy Shaw holds a note on his guitar during a Styx concert at Cactus Canyon in Beaumont on Thursday, April 28, 2005. The band is touring with concerts to promote their new album titled "Big Bang Theory," which is scheduled for release on May 10, 2005.

This was the first concert I've actually wanted to cover in a long time. Now if I could just shoot Pink Floyd...

If you'd like to read some local bloggers' reviews on the concert, please check out Miss New Orleans and Wang Chi's House of Pancakes. Additionally, Tommy Shaw was running a quasi-blog (no archive) about the tour on the band's official Web site.

Great pictures! I was so excited to be there, I didn't even think to look for you. It was a great concert.

Another nice set of concert pictures. But I agree, Pink Floyd would be the ultimate.

These are way cool. Great exposure, vivid colors, great subject composition ... need I go on :-)

I'm jealous--By the way that snake and dragonfly shot is awesome. Talk about timing.

Mark M. Hancock said...

Thank y'all. I'm humbled.
I should post the image of Young in it's original color (raw jpg). Y'all would be shocked. It took more than 50 points on the red side of magenta saturation to get his skin the correct color.

Domo Arie Gotto Mr. Roboto.

I probably spelled this wrong but I got the 45 for this song when I was in sixth grade--who knows where it is now.

Nice work for three songs.
