  Chicago the band - booking information

  Chicago - booking information

Many who know call Chicago the most successful American rock band of all time. The group came together on February 15, 1967, in the Windy City – from which it eventually would take its name.

The band members were looking to put together a rock group with a fully integrated horn section. The original group consisted of Walter Parazaider on saxophone and woodwinds, Lee Loughnane on trumpet, Terry Kath on guitar and vocals, Danny Seraphine on drums, James Pankow on trombone, and Robert Lamm on organ and vocals. In December 1967, bassist/vocalist Peter Cetera joined from rival band, The Exceptions.

  Chicago the band - booking information  Chicago's first self-titled album sold more than two million copies and spawned four chart singles, beginning a string of massive hits that lasted to the end of the decade, with each album cover sporting a variation on the Chicago logo and a sequential title with a roman numeral: Chicago II, Chicago III, etc. Chicago's music was a combination of many varying styles, from hard rock to light pop, and often included elements of jazz and classical.

Following Cetera's gold-selling #1 hit in 1976, "If You Leave Me Now," the group became more identified with romantic ballads than anything else. Chicago went into decline after a split with Guercio in 1977 and the accidental death of Kath in 1978, but it quickly rebounded in 1982 with "Hard to Say I'm Sorry" and the million-selling "Chicago 16," and was able to sustain its renewed popularity despite Cetera's departure for a solo career in 1985.

(i.e., what is the fee of CHICAGO for an event?)
(i.e., what is CHICAGO charging to perform at an event?)

Official booking fees for CHICAGO, or any other celebrity, are determined based on a number of factors and may change at anytime without prior notice.

Factors influencing pricing vary and may include date, location, type of event, whether a private party or a public concert, the artist's calendar, whether the artist is on tour or not, how well tickets are selling at the artist's concerts, the current demand for the artist's music, market activity, etc.

As you might expect, the more in-demand the artist is, the more buyers are prepared to pay. Of course, this causes the artist's price to increase as the artist becomes more popular, or decrease when becoming less popular.

Exclusive agents with exclusive representation frequently quote a range instead of a specific price, since changes can occur at anytime. Generally, the artist's manager has a role in the decision to accept any particular offer from a talent buyer.

To learn the most current artist's pricing, or the estimated artist's fee for your particular event, simply click on the "Booking information" link found on this page. Then, send us your request for booking information.
