Hailed as one of the “most important bands in music since the dawn of the rock and roll era,” the legendary rock and roll band with horns Chicago plays here at the City National Civic on February 11th.
Chicago was inducted into the 2016 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and ranked #9 on Billboard Magazine‘s recent Hot 200 All-Time Top Artists, the highest-charting American band.
Their album Chicago Transit Authority was inducted into the Grammy Hall Of Fame in 2014, and the band performed on the Grammy stage for the first time that year. Chicago is the first American rock band to chart Top 40 albums in six decades.
Chicago’s newest record of new studio tracks, “Now” Chicago XXXVI, includes eleven brand new songs, recorded on the road. Chicago has built a new recording system that is flexible, portable, powerful and musical. This new “recording rig” travels with the band. They have even created an online collaboration portal that allows even more performances to be worked on around the clock from remote locations. The CD package is a six-panel digipack with a beautiful 16-page full color lyric booklet.
