2021 marks the band’s 54th consecutive year of touring — the last date they had in Moline was April 16, 2016. Their previous arena concerts here include in 1994, 1996, 2004, 2011, and 2013.

Chicago recently received The Recording Academy’s Lifetime Achievement Award from the Grammys, which celebrates performers who have made outstanding contributions of artistic significance to the field of recording. A special award ceremony and tribute concert celebrating the honorees was held in 2020.

Chicago was inducted into the 2016 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, after their first nomination. Chicago’s first album, Chicago Transit Authority (which fused pop, rock and jazz together), was inducted into the Grammy Hall Of Fame in 2014.

Original band members Robert Lamm and James Pankow have become inductees of the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2017. These legendary songwriters wrote mega-hits such as, “25 or 6 to 4,” “Saturday In The Park,” “Feelin’ Stronger Every Day,” “Make Me Smile,” and many others.
