Chicago and the Doobie Brothers are now planning on returning to Charlotte this summer to rock out the PNC Music Pavilion in North East Charlotte. They will become some of the oldest touring bands to ever play in Charlotte.
Chicago was originally formed in Chicago, IL in 1967, and has been pumping out chart-toppers ever since. Billboard recently classified them as one of the “greatest of all time”in both singles chart success, and album chart success as well, having sold more than 100 million records.
The Doobie Brothers were founded around the same time as Chicago, seeing the peak of their career in the 1970s. They have sold an impressive 40 million records since then.
Their newly announced 2017 summer tour will start in early June and run through the end of July, mark the latest in a series of joint tours between the bands, which are among a growing list of veteran acts that have teamed up for package outings in recent years. ““The perfect summer line-up, playing dozens of the best-loved rockin’ pop classics,” commented Chicago co-founder Robert Lamm. “I’m happy to be hangin’ out with our ‘Doobie’ friends … a great band.”
The bands will be packing out the PNC Music Pavilion on June 24th, 2017.
