Billboard celebrated the 50th anniversary of its Adult Contemporary chart (in the July 23 issue), and named Chicago the #6 AC act of all-time.

 

How The Chart Was Created:



The 50th anniversary Adult Contemporary top artists and songs charts are based on actual performance on the weekly Adult Contemporary chart since its inception in the July 17, 1961, issue of Billboard. Songs are ranked based on an inverse point system, with weeks at No. 1 earning the greatest value and…

Better then EVER!

Last night under the stars at the OC Fair, Costa Mesa, CA. CHICAGO rocked! They played for over 2 hours and it ranks in the top 5 of Chicago Concerts that I have attended since 1969. We missed Walt and Jimmy; however their replacements Ray and Nick always fill in with great musicianship. Jason, you sang your heart out last night, the best I have heard you. This is a band of GREAT Musicians.… Continue

Great show at Red Rocks in Colorado!!

The band played tonight with the Colorado Symphony Orchestra, it was a great set!  Heard a lot of songs I haven't heard them play live for awhile and a smokin' Searchin' So Long was probably the highlight of the night for me.  One of the best I've heard, especially with the symphony backing them. The great Orchestra added to a lot of the songs, notably, for me, was Saturday in the Park and 25 or 6 to 4.  Thanks again guys for a great night at one of the best venues around.  Hope to see you… Continue

All of the boys where amazing and I am proud to have seen them on a live show!

Thank you for coming to Italy and to share your music with us!

Chicago concert in Milano

Hello everyone,
I was in the Chicago concert in Milano on 10th of July and just have to say - that’s the greatest band in the world. I pass 1500 km. from Sofia, Bulgaria to be on this event and I’m extremely happy I experienced all of this show, incl. to sing with Chicago under the rain!
It was unique chance for me and people like me, lived behind the “iron curtain” so many years, to see and to sing with their favorite band!
Thank you guys from Chicago! You are unique musicians!

Apollo London

We last saw the band whilst on vacation 16 years ago in Wonderland, Toronto, where the band had just released the 'Night & Day' album and, though playing through a thunderstorm, they created their own thunder and lightning that evening (still love listening to the album!). However, we did not realise how long it would be before we saw them again. What a great supercharged night in London and well worth the wait. The boys seem to have matured musically like fine wine and are such a tight…

Hammersmith Apollo 6th July 2011

What a great concert.  Brought our two daughters, Bethany and Zoe aged 9 and 7, possibly the youngest two at the show who thought it was really fab singing to songs that their Dad sang to at their age!

Las Vegas Hilton and Hammersmith Apollo

I bought 11 of the first 13 Chicago albums from 1969 onwards, and was a massive fan of Terry Kath, but only managed to get to my first gig in Las Vegas this April by accident.  My wife and I had been at a conference in Caesars Palace earlier that week, and transferred to the Las Vegas Hilton the day before the concert for our last 2 nights in Vegas.  We'd seen the posters around the monorail before the conference and so we booked tickets about a week earlier.

The Hammersmith Apollo…

Hammersmith Apollo

Fantastic concert last night, every bit as good as when we saw you with Maurice Oberstein in the 70's. We met you guys afterwards at the party. Our kids teethed on your music! Is there a play listing for the concert please?

Hammersmith 06/07/11

Chicago are like a London bus. You don't get any for ages, then two come along at the same time. Well that's not really fair, as I cheated a bit and went to Hamburg two weeks ago, and then last night in London. They were superb on both ocassions. Thinking about it, I wondered what I would be like if I did the same thing for 43 odd years with a little variation here or there. Quite simply, they are the most professional band I have ever, ever seen in all my years. And that is that!!! I have to… Continue
