Forget Da Bears. How about Da Band?
The city of Chicago is celebrating the return of the Bears to the Super Bowl in a couple weeks. (Last time there? In the 80s of course!) And we here at Stuck in the 80s are celebrating the return of the band Chicago to the touring circuit.
A spring tour by Chicago begins Feb. 3 in Anaheim, Calif., and wraps up May 16 in Las Vegas. (A stop here in Tampa Bay is set for Feb. 8 at Clearwater's Ruth Eckerd Hall.)
Now before you pigeon-hole this band as a 70s act -- thus subjecting it to endless scorn on this blog -- consider that Chicago landed more than a dozen songs on the charts in the 80s, including seven in the Top 10. They also remain one of the handful of bands that has stayed together -- in one lineup or another -- since their inception back in 1967.
Surely that feat is worthy of a top 5 list.
