8:00 pm: El Campanil hosts Chicago… The Tribute
Chicago: The Tribute brings their homage to the Hall of Fame rockers to the El Campanil Theatre. To be a great Chicago tribute band, you have to be a great band, period. For one thing, there’s Chicago’s incredible output and back catalog, encompassing 20 Top 10 hits and 15 platinum albums. Then you have to replicate the original’s incredible energy and musicality. Chicago did so much more than just “add a touch of brass to rock ‘n’ roll.” They fused rock, jazz, funk and soul into a sound all their own — a sound celebrated and expanded in an incredible string of hits like “Saturday in the Park,” “Beginnings,” “If You Leave Me Now” and “25 or 6 to 4.” On all counts, Chicago: The Tribute succeeds as one heckuva band.
​​Tickets: Adults: $27  Seniors (62 & Over): $25   Youth (Under 18): $10
