This year marks Chicago’s 51st consecutive year of touring, without missing a single concert date. The band has a total of 47 gold and platinum awards, and was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2016.

Formed in 1967, REO Speedwagon has sold over 40 million albums worldwide, including 1980’s Hi Infidelity. That album, which contained the hit singles “Keep On Loving You” and “Take It On the Run,” spent 15 weeks at No. 1.

From WAC:

Fans will enjoy a night filled with a deep catalog of hits from both bands. Chicago, in planning a show unlike any other they have done before, will perform their historic album Chicago II in its entirety followed by the “world’s longest encore” as the band jokingly refers to it, filled with their greatest hits. REO Speedwagon will electrify audiences with hits and fan-favorites such as “In Your Letter,” “Can’t Fight This Feeling,” “Time For Me To Fly,” “Roll With The Changes,” “Keep On Loving You,” “Take It On the Run” and more.

Chicago – 25 or 6 to 4
