Now you see why Chicago is STILL the BEST!

If you didn't go you missed out on a dynamite show!

Thank you Rafer for the great review of the greatest band around! CHICAGO!

Amazing show! It's also amazing that the same great three-piece horn section (Lee Loughnane, Walt Parazadier and James Pankow) is still together after 40 years, as well as singer/keyboardist Robert Lamm, who still sounds great. Didn't even miss Peter Cetera, with Jason Scheff handling the high vocals.With all the manufactured,formulaic, over-technologic crap that passes for music these days, it's refreshing to hear a band that still values musicianship!

I saw the concert and you were right - I knew America had a lot of success but didn't truly appreciate their music until the concert and their new stuff was great - so I bought the cd and that has tons on hit material on it...Chicago was tremendous - although I didn't like the first encore that much the 25 or 6 to 4 was amazing... I too really liked the groups signing some of their hits together
