Arena rockers Styx are heading back to Tucson for a show Feb. 24 at Desert Diamond Casino's Diamond Entertainment Center, 1100 W. Pima Mine Road.

Tickets starting at $25 go on sale at 10 a.m. Saturday, Jan. 7, through Star Tickets.

By the time they hit the stage, three years will have slipped by since the 1970s group's last Tucson show. So here's five classic Styx moments to put you in the mood. You can thank us — or curse us — later. 

Let's all sail away: "Come sail away / Come sail away / Come sail away with me."

Domo baby!: "You're wondering who I am (secret secret I've got a secret) /Machine or mannequin (secret secret I've got a secret) / With parts made in Japan (secret secret I've got a secret) / I am the modern man."

Get out the tissues: "Babe, I'm leaving / Must be on my way / The time is drawing near / My train is going / I see it in your eyes / The love, the need, your tears."

• Can they get any more sappy: "Lady when you're with me I'm smiling / Give me a-a-a-all your love / Your hands build me up when I'm sinking /Touch me and my troubles all fade."

• Ticket to an illusion: "Welcome to the Grand illusion / Come on in and see what's happening / Pay the price, get your tickets for the show / The stage is set, the band starts playing."
