Chicago Plots North American 2020 Tour With Rick Springfield
Chicago and Rick Springfield have announced a co-headlining North American tour for 2020. The 26-date trek launches June 12 in Concord, Calif. and wraps Aug. 1 in Rosemont, Ill.
General public tickets go on sale starting at 10AM local time Friday via Live Nation.
Chicago recently released their fourth holiday LP and 37th overall album, Chicago Christmas, which features their take on the standard ""Here We Come a Caroling." The record includes horn arrangements from trombonist James Pankow and production from trumpeter Lee Loughnane; there are two other covers and eight original compositions.
The brass-rock band issued their last album of all-original material, Chicago XXXVI: Now, in 2014. Chicago currently features three active founding members: Loughnane, Pankow and keyboardist-singer Robert Lamm; co-founding woodwind player Walter Parazaider retired from active touring but remains part of the lineup.
Lamm has said it's a "possibility" that Chicago could carry on without any of their original members. “I think there's a feeling that instead of being just Chicago it'd be like the Chicago little symphony, if you will," he said in 2018. "Players go in and players go out."
