'Chicago' live in concert May 22 at Charleston Municipal Auditorium; Tickets on sale Friday

CHARLESTON, WV (NEWS RELEASE) – 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 at #9, the highest charting American band in Billboard Magazine’s recent Hot 200 All-Time Top Artists. The award-winning band is coming to Charleston Municipal Auditorium on May 22, and tickets go on sale this Friday, December 8, at 10am at Ticketmaster.com.

Chicago is the first American rock band to chart Top 40 albums in six consecutive decades, and was inducted into the 2016 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Their 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.

Chicago have toured every year since the beginning – they’ve never missed a year.  The original four band members are Robert Lamm on keyboards and vocals, Lee Loughnane on trumpet and vocals, James Pankow on trombone and Walt Parazaider on woodwinds. The band line-up also includes Tris Imboden on drums, Keith Howland on guitar and vocals, Lou Pardini on keyboards and vocals, Ray Herrmann on sax and flute, Walfredo Reyes, Jr. on percussion and Jeff Coffey on bass and vocals.

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.  2017 marks the band’s 50th consecutive year of touring, without missing a single concert date!

Chicago continue to be true ambassadors for their beloved hometown, carrying the city’s name with pride and dignity around the world.
