The music was amazing. The horns section, guitarist, and drum solo carried the show. The lose of their lead singer back in the 2014(?) really hurts as the vocals are not up to par. We still loved it and applauded the remaining founding members amazing talent. Thanks for bringing it!!!

4.0 star rating Angela Hill from Atlantic City, New Jersey


Chris was amazing!!!!! Not enough Steve Vai!!!!!!! Neil did all 3 vocals and was a formidable replacement. Although Judith Hill is an excellent singer, I just think Chris would've been the one chosen to sing "Color My World" to keep it original-ish. VoicePlay made a great addition, but Robin Thicke needs the boot! The 3 original are still amazing and played and sang their hearts out! The concert served as a poignant reminder to me of Terry Kath's immense talent and the profound impact he had on the music world. His legacy lives on, not just in the continued popularity of Chicago's music but also in the hearts of fans worldwide who continue to cherish his music and his memory.

1. I love Chicago and have seen them many times. Good concert, however, Jimmy Pankow was a no show. This happened before too. There are so few original members that the group is seeming more like a tribute band. They should notify ticketholders when an original member will not perform. 2. The Venue management was not good. They sent no communication that you needed to put all of your belongings in a clear plastic bad to get in the show. One person said you couldn't bring in a mini umbrella and another said you could. My wife had to go to a special location to check in her purse and then we were allowed into the venue and they didn't even scan our ticket. What a joke.

Great instrument playing....mostly lack luster solo vocals although together they still sound good.....played a lot of non hit music for a night with their hits

3.0 star rating Kathleen from Albany, New York


My all time favorite band but ….. after leaving the concert at SPAC Sunday night I resigned myself to listen to their music on line. We had wonderful seats but the vocals just weren’t what they used to be. Their new young lead guitarist/vocalist was weak in the vocals department. The original members vocals were wonderful but not as strong as they have been in prior years. I left satiated but sad, it was the last Chicago concert I will attend. From now I will enjoy their music while at home listening on Amazon Music or Pandora.

Went to show on12/31/21 in AC, disappointing, the band didn’t play “ color my world “ or feeling stronger every day completely, plus no encore. If they can’t play a full concert, then they all should have been in bed by 10pm

3.0 star rating Rob from Boston, Massachusetts


Overall glad I attended. However, the sound level was exceptionally loud and lacked several aspect of a good mix. Several sounds were simply piercing, and the blending of instruments was far off the mark much of the time. A highlight part at times would soar far above the mix as to be detached from the overall band. The average sound pressure level (SPL) was completely excessive. Dynamics were non-existent, sound went from too loud to crazy loud. PS. I have attended and mixed many live shows. This act needs some technical work and perhaps a musical director with a bit more scrutiny. PSS. Attended Steely Dan 1 week prior, sat in similar seats and the difference was remarkable... mix and level for the Dan absolutely excelled.
