Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre at Encore Park
Chicago – The Band & The Doobie Brothers are embarking on a joint tour that comes to Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre at Encore Park on Friday 23rd June 2017! The two titans of classic rock will be performing all the sing-along hits from their incredible careers, getting you boogieing like it's 1975!
American rock band The Doobie Brothers has sold over 40 million albums worldwide throughout its career, and has been active in the music industry for over five decades. Starting out in 1970, for the first five years as a band, the group featured lead vocalist Tom Johnston and a mainstream rock and roll sound with elements of folk, country and R&B. After the departure of Johnson in 1975, the band embraced a more soul-influenced sound through their new lead singer, Michael McDonald, who fronted the band until their break-up in 1982. After reforming five years later, with Johnston back at the helm, Chicago has constantly toured since 1993, with McDonald sitting in with the band on occasion throughout the year, usually as a special guest. They were inducted into the Vocal Group Hall of Fame in 2004.
