Chicago VI Decades Live Set Coming
http://bestclassicbands.com/chicago-vi- ... e-2-11-18/

We’re still awaiting complete details but it appears that Chicago fans are in for a huge treat. A 5-disc collection, Chicago VI Decades Live–using the band’s signature Roman numerals–and the subtitle “This Is What We Do,” has been scheduled for release by Rhino. The box set, either 5-CDs or perhaps 4-CDs/1-DVD, arrives March 30

While we don’t have the list of specific performances or personnel, we have a tentative track listing.

The band’s current lineup recently announced a North American summer tour with REO Speedwagon. For these dates, the band will perform their historic Chicago II album in its entirety followed by the “world’s longest encore” as the band jokingly refers to it, filled with their greatest hits. (In January, they replaced their longtime drummer as well as their bass player/lead vocalist.)

Chicago formed in 1967 and were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2016. They are the highest charting American band in Billboard‘s Hot 200 All-Time Top Artists, earning the #15 spot (as of Feb. 2018). The group’s extensive accomplishments include five consecutive #1 albums and record sales in excess of 100 million.
