Chicago The Band Fan Forum

The official community for fans of the legendary rock band with horns.



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!”

Bring back David Foster.  The hits haven't been much (except for Chicago 19) since he stopped producing Chicago.

How good is to read this!! It's wonderful that  the band and David reunited, and that David  seemed to be really pleased  with the show they gave!  It just shows that there's much more life for the band , and with their experience and maturity, they are really big and ''feeling stronger everyday", I mean,  being stronger than ever!!! :)

Mmm...could there be any possiblity that David would produce at least one song for the band...again? No matter if it is slow or uptempo...It surely would be great!! Would the band would dare to do it...would they want to do that? At least one more time? Will they still love David to do it for them again...even though so much time has passed?

One of the greatest producers of all time with the greatest band of all time.  What a great reunion and what great things David said about the band.
