Chicago started 2017 year off with a bang by announcing a summer co-headline tour with The Doobie Brothers. The pair of multi-Grammy winners will hit the road this summer for a 30+ city trek across North America.

Pollstar reports on Jan. 3 that the powerful double-bill will rock amphitheatres across the U.S. and Canada throughout June and July. The announcement comes as Chicago continue to celebrate their 2016 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction and upcoming 50th anniversary, which began with the TV premiere of their documentary “Now More Than Ever: The History of Chicago” on Jan. 1 via CNN

The co-headline trek will kick off June 7 in Concord, California, at the Concord Pavilion. The pair of multi-platinum sellers will work their way east, hitting numerous major city stops, including visits to Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Denver, Toronto, Chicago and Boston before winding things up July 30 in Virginia Beach, Virginia, at Veterans United Home Loans Amphitheater At Virginia Beach.

“The perfect summer line-up, playing dozens of the best-loved rockin’ pop classics, writes Chicago founding member and lead vocalist Robert Lamm in a press release. “I’m happy to be hangin’ out with our ‘Doobie’ friends… a great band.”

“We are so excited to once again be sharing the stage with our wonderful friends Chicago,” says Doobie Brothers founder and lead vocalist/guitarist Tom Johnston. They're a great band, and musically we fit together very well.”
