James Pankow interview -Chicago trombonist and horn arranger leads the charge

Between two tours of Europe and Asia and select dates in the United States this summer, it seems audiences can't get enough of the legendary rock 'n' roll band with horns, Chicago.

Chicago will take the stage for a one-time performance in Ohio on May 20 at the Hard Rock Rocksino, 10777 Northfield Road in Northfield. The show starts at 8 p.m. Tickets range from $56 to $110.

"It's not only busy, it's busier than ever," said original band member Jimmy Pankow. "It's gotten to the point where the music has become a phenomenon."

This year marks Chicago's 47th consecutive year of touring, without missing a single concert date.

"This is what we've done for so long that it's become almost something that we cannot do without," Pankow said. "It's a communion because you created this music and little did you know when you sat at a piano and notated some intimate, personal ideas and thoughts that they would become shared with hundreds of thousands of people and become an experience, not just notes on paper."

The show will take audiences on a magical journey, starting from the very beginning.

"The adrenaline gets pumping," Pankow said. "The people get nuts. The show we're doing is probably the best show we've ever done in terms of pacing, in terms of capturing the body of music of all these years. We start the show with the first album and we include selections from our new album."

Chicago's new record, "Now," Chicago XXXVI, is set to release on July 4. The album includes 11 brand new songs, recorded on the road.

"We have some very exploratory stuff and music that is traditionally Chicago," Pankow said. "We have the signature horns and the identity that the music has always had, but we also have the fun of taking it places that…

Grammy-award winning rockers, CHICAGO, who have been on tour throughout Canada for the last month, played their final show of the run last night.Renown music producer, David Foster, flew up from Los Angeles to Victoria, BC, his hometown, specifically to take family and friends to Chicago’s concert. 

Chicago has a special feeling for Foster, as they were the first major group Foster produced, and after their success, he went on to be one of the greatest music producers in the world and win numerous Grammy, Emmy and Juno awards.
Foster produced Chicago XVI, XVII and XVIII, which included some of the band’s biggest hits: “Hard To Say I’m Sorry,” “You’re The Inspiration,” “Hard Habit To Break” and “Will You Still Love Me?”

Foster came backstage to congratulate the band on their recent performance on the Grammys, and for their Chicago Transit Authority album to be inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame this year.

Said Foster after the concert, “Please tell all the guys that I absolutely LOVED the show. It was spectacular - the playing, the singing - so tight, so perfect!!! After hearing that giant body of impossible achieving work, it just confirms that I was a mere blip on the radar.

Going down early Chicago memory lane reminded me of why I love music and why I am addicted to their unique, brilliant sound!! It was an unforgettable evening!”
