Hailed as one of the “most important bands in music since the dawn of the rock and roll era,” Chicago boasts a massive career loaded with accolades.
Thanks to smash hits including “You’re the Inspiration,” “If You Leave Me Now,” and “Hard to Say I’m Sorry,” Chicago became the highest-charting American band in Billboard Magazine’s Top 125 Artists of All Time and is the first American rock band to chart Top 40 albums in six consecutive decades.
Chicago’s first album, Chicago Transit Authority, was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame in 2014 and in 2017 Robert Lamm and James Pankow were inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame.
These legendary songwriters are credited for writing mega-hits such as “25 or 6 to 4,” “Saturday In the Park,” “Feelin’ Stronger Every Day,” “Make Me Smile,” and many others.
Chicago’s career includes a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award, two American Music Awards, a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, a Chicago street dedicated in their honour, and keys to an impressive list of U.S. cities. Record sales top the one million mark and include 21 Top 10 singles, five consecutive Number One albums, 11 Number One singles, five gold singles, and 25 certified platinum albums.
In 2022, the band released their latest record Born for this Moment, capturing the true heart of a legendary band. With 14 vibrant new songs, the record encapsulates the unique blend of award-winning and personal song writing, multilayered harmonic vocalizations, and world-class arrangements that have been electrifying audiences across the globe for decades.
From the signature sound of the Chicago horns, their iconic vocalists, and a few dozen ever-classic songs, Chicago concerts are always a celebration. Chicago continues to be true ambassadors for their beloved hometown, carrying the city’s name with pride and dignity around the world, with 2023 marking their 56th consecutive year of touring.
