By the Chicago Authority
The Chicago Authority is a powerhouse 9-piece band dedicated to celebrating the music of one of the most popular and prolific bands of all time: Chicago!
For nearly fifty years Chicago has been one of the world's top touring acts, and their 2016 induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame has skyrocketed their popularity and introduced their vast 36-album catalog of music to millions of new fans.
The Chicago Authority pays tribute to that legacy during a three-hour show that mimics the look and duplicates the sound of the touring band. Your audiences will hear plenty of hits including Make Me Smile, Saturday in the Park, If You Leave Me Now, 25 or 6 to 4, Hard Habit to Break, and Colour My World, plus selected album cuts such as Introduction, In the Country, and We Can Stop the Hurtin'. The show also features unplugged versions of Will You Still Love Me, Where Do We Go From Here, Another Rainy Day in New York City, and Wishing You Were Here.
Celebrate a 50-year musical legacy and a new-again Hall of Fame popularity with a band that has been called “the world's best Chicago tribute,” The Chicago Authority!
