Styx and Joan Jett and the Blackhearts kicked off their joint summer tour on Wednesday at the Five Point Amphitheatre in California, with Tesla serving as opening act for the rock legends. Styx’s set consisted of 16-songs: four songs from last year’s The Mission. Styx began their encore with “Mr. Roboto” which they reportedly have not played in its entirety since they split with former lead singer Dennis DeYoung, who came up with the record’s concept. Styx posted a video of their performance to their Facebook page.  Jett began with “Bad Reputation” and continued with crowd-pleasing songs like “Cherry Bomb,” “I Love Rock ‘n’ Roll,” and “I Hate Myself for Loving You.”  The co-headlining tour will wrap up on July 15 at the PNC Bank Arts Center in Holmdel, N.J.
