Chicago reveal fall dates following summer tour with Doobie Brothers

Legendary classic rock band Chicago will be heading out on an expansive world tour next month. The “Beginnings” hitmakers will kick off their next tour on May 12 in Wisconsin before moving on to venues in Minneapolis, Akron, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Phoenix Dallas, Denver, Atlanta, Charlotte, Chicago, Detroit, Toronto, Boston, Washington D.C. and Virginia Beach.

Although they came into existence in the late ‘60s as an aggressively political experimental outfit, Chicago gradually evolved into one of the soft rock era’s biggest acts. In the early 70s, the band turned down their rhetoric and turned up their horn section to adopt a jazz-rock sound that resonated with millions of listeners. The following decade, the group continued their evolution by moving away from guitars with horns paradigm to embrace the power of power ballads. Instead of alienating listeners, the change solidified Chicago as one rock’s most popular acts.

In what will be exciting news for classic rock fans, Chicago will perform with their fellow soft rock iconoclasts Doobie Brothers on a select number of dates this summer. This pairing of classic rock titans will begin the first week of June will continue on through the end of July. Colorado-based rocks fans should make a special effort to Chicago in the Doobie Brothers performance at Morrison, Colorado’s Red Rocks Amphitheatre. As the venue has previously hosted some of the finest concerts that U2, the Moody Blues and Stevie Nicks’ careers, there’s a good chance this show will be one to remember.
