Kenny Cetera’s Chicago Experience, Saturday, July 18
In 1984, Kenny added his unmistakable tenor vocals to several songs on Chicago 17, the biggest selling Chicago album in history, including the chart-topping "You're the Inspiration," "Stay The Night," "Along Comes A Woman" and "Prima Donna" and was quickly recruited by the band to hit the road for one of the most memorable tours in their history. Kenny Cetera’s Chicago Experience features a full complement of live musicians that make it feel and sound like a true Chicago Experience.
(“25 Or 6 to 4,” “Color My World,” “Does Anybody Really Know What Time it Is,” “If You Leave Me Now,” “Look Away,” ”Saturday in the Park,” “You’re the Inspiration”)
Hotel California: A Salute to the Eagles, Friday, August 7

Stayin’ Alive – the sound of the Bee Gees, Saturday, August 8
STAYIN' ALIVE is the quintessential tribute band to the Bee Gees, capturing the excitement of live performance and the tender subtleties of the human voice. From the first falsetto-inflected note of their opening number to the final crashing power chords of the encore, the audience will slip back in time to the glory days of Maurice, Robin, and Barry - The Brothers Gibb. The boys from Canada return to Foellinger Theatre to offer the songs and sights of a full Bee Gees play list, singing blockbusters such as "Night Fever", "Jive Talkin,'" "How Deep Is Your Love," "You Should Be Dancing," "Nights on Broadway," and "Stayin' Alive.” In addition, they perform softer poetic ballads such as "I Started a Joke," "Massachusetts," "Fanny Be Tender," "Words," and "To Love Somebody" among other great hits.
All shows start at 8:00 p.m., gates open at 7:00 p.m. Sponsored by ABC21, Majic 95.1 and Classic Hits 101.7.
