Legendary rock band, Chicago, visited the Bismarck Civic Center on Tuesday night, April 22nd, and we have exclusive video footage from the show--Courtesy of Your Early Morning Radio Pal---J.J. Hemingway and his girlfriend Sherry Bentley.

I had seen Chicago back in 1991 in Colorado and 23 years ago they were great to see and hear live.  But this time around--I'd say Chicago was spectacular.  The concert kicked off with 'Questions 67 and 68' from their first album, and then one amazing hit after another. The horns were incredible and it seems that the man having the most fun on stage had to be Jimmy Pankow (he plays the trombone and trumpet). You could tell he so enjoys what he is doing on stage!  As did Robert Lamm and all members of Chicago.

The other band members are incredibly talented, playing a number of instruments - horns, keyboards, guitar and more. Robert Lamm, the lead singer, sounded amazing after more than 45 years of singing the Chicago hits. He was right on when it came to their summer of 1972 hit “Saturday In The Park." And the crowd really erupted when Chicago did the full version of 'Hard To Say I'm Sorry/Getaway'.  And sang along to "Does Anybody Really Know What Time It Is."

Chicago's other lead singer, Jason Schepp, who had been with the band since 1987 did an exceptional job filling in for Chicago's original voice—Peter Cetera—who is now a solo star and not part of the band.

Two encores later, the entire band appeared on stage and bowed before the sold-out audience following their final song "25 Or 6 To 4," and all I can say--It was indeed definitely an amazing 2 ½ hours of music, memories and fun!!   And they do have a new song and album coming out July 4th.  They played their new song called "America," and like everything else---it sounded awesome!!!

Chicago---thanks for such an awesome show....we love you here in Bismarck!

Take a look at some of our favorite moments from the concert.
