In Photos: Chicago Live in Manila

It’s great to work with my better half for this concert. It’s been a challenge for him to go back to shooting live music once again. Together we experienced that exhilarating moment upon seeing the blazing light show. Chicago’s show is one of the most challenging since the lights are on high intensity, as they’re are also composed of 9 members yet it helped these musicians to perform better.

Highlights for me were when they played their signature hits including the duet with Journey frontman Arnel Pineda. Video by Legato Music Magazine

Chicago is composed of Robert Lamm, Lee Loughnane, James Pankow, Walter Parazaider, Jason Scheff, Tris Imboden, Keith Howland, Lou Pardini and Walfredo Reyes Jr. It’s totally impressive how these legendary artists master the creation of their finest sounds through their instruments and in all round virtuosity. Here are some of their performances, videos by Kim Lee.

We’ve accomplished something extraordinary, a heavy dose of inspiration. Check out our photo set:

Sharing you some Chicago fun facts (taken from this LINK):

  • Chicago mayor Richard Daley and the real “Chicago Transit Authority” objected to the band’s name, so they shortened it to just Chicago.
  • The group that laid down the first tracks consisted of Walt Parazaider (saxophone,), Lee Loughnane (trumpet), James Pankow (trombone), Danny Seraphine (drums), Peter Cetera (bass), Terry Kath (guitar), and Robert Lamm (keyboard). All members with the exception of Seraphine contributed to the vocals. They are originally formed in 1967.
  • “Along Comes a Woman” (with “We Can Stop the Hurtin’” on the flip side) was released as a single in March 1985, the last single Peter Cetera performed. Peter Cetera left the group to launch a solo career after that year’s summer tour.
  • Perhaps on the strength of two #4 singles (“Dialogue Parts I & II” and “Saturday in the Park”), “Chicago V” was the first of the band’s five #1 albums. “Chicago Transit Authority” topped at #17, “Chicago VII” marked their third consecutive #1 album (“Chicago V”, “Chicago VI”, and “Chicago VII”), and “Chicago X” topped at #3 but gave the band their first #1 single on Billboard’s US album charts.Related Links: Chicago Symphony in Manila [manilaconcertjunkies@blogspot.com}
