CHICAGO BAND AT THE PEACE CENTER
What a fabulous show. Possibly one of the best concerts I've ever been to. So many great songs. Such showmanship. All the instruments and voices blended so well together. This group of musicians is extremely talented and gifted. Would go see them again in a heartbeat. Recommend for anyone who loves Chicago or who just loves a GREAT show.

MAKE ME SMILE
Beautiful late May night outdoors at the Toledo Zoo Ampitheater. Chicago started their 1 intermission, 2 set, 1 encore performance, on time. Playing their 50 years of #1 hits to an appreciative older crowd, Chicago with many original members, had the house up and out of their seats and swaying to their favorites many times throughout the evening. The lead singer was great with a range that easily handled the vocal gymnastics needed for the diverse jazzy sound that has become signature CTA. The forms, percussion, guitars, keyboards, and backing harmonies, were a well oiled machine of true professionals who performed without gimmicks of wild stage sets, crazy light show, dancers, vocalizers, and click-track fillers. They play it straight and enthusiastically. They come across warm and genuine. Older guys, playing to an older crowd where those on stage and those in the audience shared an evening of memories.

CHICAGO IN YOUNGSTOWN OH
My all time favorite band from the 70’s and 80’s. Saw them last night in Youngstown and they were awesome! Played all my favorites and sounded great ! Would see them again in a heartbeat!
Steve from Houston, Texas
Fantastic concert. All the hits. Very well done. We were mystified that the crowd was completely dead. The audience didn’t seem to know the songs or care about the performance. Just sitting quietly. Awkward.

CHICAGO IN CONCERT
So Enjoyed the concert on July 26, 2019. Brought back so many wonderful memories. Three original members still in the band, but enjoyed the newer members as well. Look forward to seeing them again.

SOUND MIX NOT GOOD
Chicago is a great band, great showmen, and an unreal litany of hits. Sadly the sound mix at the Orpheum last night in Boston was not good. The first half of the show was really muddy. Couldn't clearly distinguish the vocals at all. It got better in the second half of the show - but could be better. I was excited to see them at the Orpheum because remember the acoustics being so good for other concerts at that venue. This was not the case with Chicago.

WHAT A POOR JOB BY THE VENETIAN
80 % of the show was enjoyable, very nice venue and the band was GREAT. Our group of six was lucky enough to secure front row seats and it was a first for us and very special until the 5th to the last song. A group of 30-50 spectators decided there seats weren't good enough and came down and stood and completely filled the area between the front row and the stage completely blocking the show for the people that had paid top dollar for the front row seats. This was at a point where Chicago was playing some of their biggest hits including all the songs during the encore. What a shame as there was no security staff from the Venetian to move the people back to their seats. This wasn't a Smashing Pumpkins' mosh pit but sure screwed up a great concert. If this is what the Venetian thinks is normal they don't deserve to have people pay good money for a nice facility. Wait for Chicago to come to your town, don't pay the Venetian, get tickets and go stand in the general admission area and fight the crowd for a lot less money.

FAIR AT BEST
Many LOUD instrumentals most songs saved for the second half

CHICAGO CONCERT IN ST. LOUIS
Really looked forward to this concert of an awesome band from my youth. However, all I can say is it was loud. The sound mix was a complete disaster, couldn't hear the vocal or instrumental solos. What a shame, such talented performers working their tails off and the result was a distorted mess. Would love for them to work this out and return to the tight refined sound for which they are famous.
