Chicago And America Announce US Tour

United States
LOS ANGELES, April 3 2007 — Rock greats Chicago and America today announced an 18-city US summer tour. Beginning June 5th at the Sound Advice Amphitheatre in West Palm Beach, FL, the shows will run through July 8th, finishing at the Open Air Theatre in San Diego, CA. Other highlights on the tour include a date at Nikon at Jones Beach Theatre in Wantagh, NY on June 22nd and Los Angeles’ Greek Theatre on July 7th. The tour is being produced by Live Nation. Tickets for select dates will be available for purchase at www.livenation.com starting April 2nd. Check www.livenation.com for more information regarding on-sales.

Chicago and America will both perform on NBC’s Today Show Summer Concert Series on June 22nd.

2007 is a milestone year for Chicago, the legendary rock “n” roll band with horns. Well known for extraordinary creativity, influential musicianship and staggering commercial success, Chicago now celebrates its 40th Anniversary -- a show of longevity rarely achieved in most careers, let alone the music business.

Starting in 1967, well before all the hits started flowing, Chicago established a reputation for its powerful live show. Fueled by a passion for music, Chicago’s members exploded the conventions of what rock music could or should be. The result was a groundbreaking new form, played by extraordinarily talented musicians. Early fans like Jimi Hendrix and Janis Joplin were sufficiently impressed -- they took the group out on their respective tours. Once the group began making records, fans rewarded the group with record sales of 100,000,000, 20 Top 10 hits, 5 Number One albums, 5 Number One singles, and 5 Gold singles. An incredible 25 of their 30 albums have been certified platinum. To date, Chicago is the first American band to chart Top 40 albums in five decades -- a landmark accomplishment.

In the midst of their fourth decade of music making, America have been perennials on the concert circuit for 34 years, pleasing their loyal fan base and attracting new generations of followers. The band’s new 2-CD set, Here & Now is a spectacular distillation of the group’s signature sound past and present, comprising one studio record of all new material and a second live disc taped at XM Radio featuring renditions of songs found on the group’s multi-platinum greatest hits album, History.

From their formative years, America has been a band capable of transcending borders with its uplifting music and positive message. Embracing a rainbow of divergent cultures, America’s audiences continue to grow, comprising a loyal legion of first, second and third generation fans, all bearing testament to the group’s enduring appeal. From anonymous horses to fast-moving trains, America’s extraordinary four-decade musical legacy of consummately crafted pop/rock songs, trademark lush harmonies and evocative lyrical landscapes will never go out of style.
