MOLINE, ILLINOIS (November 16, 2021) — Don’t miss and evening with Chicago April 19 at the TaxSlayer Center. Tickets go on sale Friday, November 19, 10AM. Hailed as one of the "most important bands in music since the dawn of the rock and roll era," by former President Bill Clinton, the legendary rock and roll band with horns, Chicago, came in as the highest charting American band in Billboard Magazine's Top 125 Artists of All Time. And Chicago is the first American rock band to chart Top 40 albums in six consecutive decades.
From the signature sound of the Chicago horns, their iconic Vocalists, and a few dozen of ever-classic songs, this band’s concerts are celebrations. 2021 marks the band’s 54th consecutive year of touring! Chicago continues to be true ambassadors for their beloved hometown, carrying the city's name with pride and dignity around the world.
Chicago recently received The Recording Academy’s Lifetime Achievement Award from the GRAMMYS. The Lifetime Achievement Award celebrates performers who have made outstanding contributions of artistic significance to the field of recording. A special award ceremony and tribute concert celebrating the honorees was held in 2020.
Chicago was inducted into the 2016 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. This was their first nomination. Chicago's first album, Chicago Transit Authority, was inducted into the GRAMMY Hall Of Fame in 2014. Chicago managed to fuse pop, rock, and jazz together perfectly in this double album.
