SPONSORED -- Hailed as one of the "most important bands in music since the dawn of the rock and roll era" by former President Bill Clinton, CHICAGO, is the highest charting American band in Billboard Magazine’s list of Top 100 artists of all time. The band is also the first American rock band to chart Top 40 albums in six decades. With songs such as “IF YOU LEAVE ME NOW,” ”WISHING YOU WERE HERE,” “CALL ON ME,” “HARD TO SAY IM SORRY,” and “LOOK AWAY,” lifetime achievements for the band include a Grammy Award, multiple American Music Awards, and a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Record sales top the 100,000,000 mark, and include 21 Top 10 singles, 5 consecutive number one albums, 11 number one singles and 5 Gold singles. CHICAGO's album, Chicago Transit Authority, was inducted into the GRAMMY Hall Of Fame in 2014, and that year, a record of new studio tracks, “NOW” CHICAGO XXXVI, was released. It includes eleven brand new songs, recorded on the road. CHICAGO have toured every year since the beginning - they’ve never missed a year. The line-up includes original band members Robert Lamm on keyboards, vocals, Lee Loughnane on trumpet, James Pankow on trombone and Walt Parazaider on woodwinds, as well as Jason Scheff on bass, vocals, Tris Imboden on drums, Keith Howland on guitar, Lou Pardini on keyboards, vocals and Wally Reyes on percussion. From the signature sound of the CHICAGO horns, their iconic Vocalists, and a few dozen of ever-classic songs, this band’s concerts are celebrations.
