Chicago and Doobie Brothers

Target Audience: This tour is for people who feel that music reached for perfection in 1972, right as "Listen to the Music" and "Saturday in the Park" climbed into the Top 10. These groups may not be very "cool" these days and they may be missing "key members," but they work their asses off every summer pounding out those  hits. 

Missing Members: There's too many to name, but the Doobie Brothers no longer have Michael McDonald and Chicago has been without Peter Cetera for quite some time.

Likely Highlight: Sadly, the Karate Kid II song "The Glory of Love" was a Peter Cetera solo song, so they won't be doing that. Same goes for "I Keep Forgettin'." That was Michael McDonald solo. But the Doobies are sure to bust out "China Groove," "Listen to the Music" and "Takin' it to the Streets" and "What a Fool Believes." Likewise, no Chicago concert would be complete without "Saturday in the Park," "25 or 6 to 4," "Just You 'N' Me" and "If You Leave Me Now."
