The Official Chicago Fan Network
Recently, I purchased the 2cd set "The Atlantic Albums" by England Dan and John Ford Coley. Inside the liner notes, John Ford Coley recalls, "....All those acts of the day that we came across, Three Dog Night, Bread, the Carpenters, Elton, Carole King, CHICAGO, they all treated us so good and really helped us along."
I thought a nice thank you to a group that I feel the same way about.....Chicago!!

Any comments on Chicago adding "Street Player" to the line-up on this past week's live Yahoo concert from Az?
"Chicago 13", from where the song came, probably (I'm guessing) one of the lowest selling "first-run" albums, with no big hits, and having Donnie Dacus on lead. A fan since '69, personally, I could think of a lot of other "obscure" songs to add to the line-up: e.g.: "Lowdown"; "Flight 602", "Something In This City...", "Byblos", and one of my favorites, though not very…Continue

I always say each time I go to a Chicago concert "the band continues to get better and better". Due to personal reasons, I had not seen them in a few years. Thursday night's concert blew me away. What an absolute joy to sit through 25 amazing songs. They were unbelievably good and absolutely incredible. Better than ever!
They opened with "Introduction". It is the first time I had seen the entire song in concert. Let's put it this way...I hope they always open with that song.…Continue
I'm new the Chicago The Band Music Community. I've been a loyal Chicago fan since the day I bought the "Chicago Transit Authority" album back in the early seventies when it was released. I'm retired military, and they have been there with me through high school, many military deployments, marriage, divorce, marriage again, children, and grandchildren. It's amazing how so many of the songs I grew up with and went through life with still…Continue
Good job Lee with the ice bucket challenge... way to go and whose next? Did you pass on the challenge?
I saw my favorite band in Raleigh this past Saturday night. I drove 5 hrs to see them. It was worth every mile. I saw them in May at Harrah's Cherokee. They are the best band of all time for me. They make me so happy every time I hear one of their songs. I grew up listening to them and still enjoy them as much as I did in the 70's when I first know who they were. I am so happy the merchandise has come out. For the past few years I had been trying to get shirts, posters and such. I would love…Continue
I want to say Chicago has been loved by me for 42 years. I loved them as a child! They got me through my divorce in 1981 and it was so hard because I still loved my ex-husband. He went to Embry- Riddle, in Daytona Beach, Florida for 4 years and guess who typed his reports. Well, single life attracted him and left a 1 year old and me by the sidelines. Well, I have always put myself on the line for others and I probably would do it again. My friend and I went to Phoenix, Arizona last year. My…Continue
Hello Chicago Fans, I know many of you are musicians and have accumulated sheet music over the years of our favorite band. I lost the Complete Works Sketch Scores for Chicago Transit Authroity, Chicago II and III in a move in 1978. Alas, I am having trouble finding a credible source to buy/borrow or get "gifted" one. I still have my Chicago V, VI, VII and VIII original sketch scores. So within the appropriate way of securing one, please advise if anyone has one. I'd be willing to…Continue

Really looking forward to next week's show in Atl. The band has been at Verizon in Alpharetta the last couple of tours and front row seats are great, but were below stage level which made it hard to see the entire stage, even while standing. Seats at Chastain are back farther, as there is a "table set-up" with season table ticket holders closest to the stage. The Fab Club tix are as close as possible and I appreciate that.
Here's hoping they don't confiscate my camera at…Continue

Have a super Birthday Keith, enjoy today and your evening too.
All I can say is WOW. Assume Show with REO. Both groups did Chicago, Illinois proud. The encore with both groups doing a mix of 6 great REO and Chicago songs made the show !!! Cheers

Tonight in a suburb north of Detroit, Chicago is playing at DTE! Two of my friends have a nasty virus that is going around. My friend, Vicki, is going with me....and it is raining and storming outside. I have waited to see if they would cancel--as Rascal Flatts did cancel last summer! But, not yet--no cancellations! I am waiting, though, We will go out to dinner and see how it goes.....Maybe they will cancel yet--as it looks pretty gloomy and thundery outside.....hmmmmm.....time will…Continue
The concert last night was FANTASTIC!! This was the seventh time seeing Chicago in concert and they never disappoint. REO was also great and I loved when they played together. Their hook-up with Earth Wind & Fire was the best however. It was a perfect night for an outdoor concert with our hometown boys!
