Chicago is 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 a horn section is
the first American rock band to chart Top 40 albums in six 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. The band is now in their 50th consecutive year of touring, without
missing a single concert date.

The Beginning charted at #1 on two Billboard charts: the Catalog Chart, and the Digital Catalog
chart and in Billboard Magazine's list of Top 100 artists of all time, CHICAGO came in at #13,
the highest charting American rock band. Chicago’s first album Chicago Transit Authority, was
inducted into the GRAMMY Hall of Fame in 2014 and the band performed on the Grammy stage
for the first time that year.

the Hollywood Walk of Fame, a Chicago street dedicated in their honor, and keys to and
proclamations from an impressive list of US cities. Record sales top the 100,000,000 mark, and
include 21 Top 10 singles, 5 consecutive Number One albums, 11 Number One singles and 5
