The polls are closed and the people have spoken. We've tallied up your ballots to determine the winners of the 2017 Ultimate Classic Rock Fan Choice Awards, and they're all lined up right here.
It can be hard for a classic rock act to entice longtime fans with new music these days, but Styx's audience definitely appreciated the band's return from a long hiatus between albums of original material. The Mission, the group's 16th studio LP and first since 2003's Cyclorama, marked Styx's highest chart peak in more than 30 years when it debuted in June — and the fan base is still excited about it, as evidenced by the voting results in our Album of the Year category. The Mission took top honors with 52 percent of the vote, easily outdistancing the follow-up contender, Gregg Allman's Southern Blood.

Styx also enjoyed a strong showing in the Song of the Year category, where the Mission cut "Hundred Million Miles From Home" — one of several songs made available for streaming prior to the album's release — racked up 56 percent of the vote on its way to a first-place finish. Once again in second place: Allman, with his Southern Blood cut "My Only True Friend."

We already knew plenty of classic rock artists made good money on the road in 2017, thanks to top-grossing tours from Metallica, Guns N' Roses and U2. But none of those acts topped the UCR Fan Choice Awards; instead, Queen enjoyed a landslide victory for top Tour of the Year, drawing a whopping 69 percent of the vote. Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers' 40th anniversary tour, sadly punctuated by Petty's unexpected death, took a distant second.

I agree with one of the commenters to the article - it would have been nice if Adam was mentioned; i.e. Queen and ADAM LAMBERT!

Adam was included in the results of the various polls at the bottom of the original article. I have to agree that it’s unfortunate that Adam’s name was left out of both the title of the article and from the body of the article. A rather unfortunate and in my opinion, careless mistake on the part of the author of the results article. Adam is an important member of Queen now, and without Adam Lambert they would not be touring at all. On the plus side, they won, something to be very thankful for indeed!
