‘Chicago’ to perform at state fair PDF Print E-mail

The Nebraska State Fair has signed one of the country’s most prolific groups to its line-up. Chicago will perform on Saturday, Aug. 31. Tickets are  $30 dollars plus fees. Tickets go on sale Tuesday, June 18.
According to State Fair Events and Entertainment Director, Chelsey Jungck, “There’s no question that Chicago is one of the most successful bands in the history of music. With record sales over 100-million, 21 Top 10 singles, five consecutive number one albums, and 11 number one singles, Chicago is the first American band to chart Top 40 albums in five decades which is a landmark accomplishment.”
Formed in 1967, Chicago weaved an entirely new sound–rock and roll with horns. The groups’ string of hits includes, “25 or 6 to 4,” “Just You and Me,” “Saturday in the Park,” ”Old Days,” “Wishing You Were Here,” and the list goes on and on.
“When one thinks of what group is and always has been at the forefront of the music industry, there’s no question that Chicago ranks at the top,” Jungck said.
