    Chicago would like to officially welcome bassist / vocalist Jeff Coffey to the band! Jeff has been touring with Chicago in recent months, filling in for long-time member Jason Scheff.

    We are so grateful to Jason for the enormous contribution he has made to Chicago over the last 30 plus years. Everyone wishes him and his family all the best as he continues his musical journey.

    Was um Himmels Willen ist da los?

    Vorgestern gibt Tris Imboden seinen Ausstieg aus der Band bekannt und heute Jeff Coffey, der erst seit Oktober 2016 offiziell Mitarbeiter der Firma Chicago war.

    Dear Friends,
    This is to announce that I have decided to no longer tour with the band Chicago. I came to this decision after many sleepless nights and much soul searching. I realize the great honor I was given to have played drums with this incredible band for quite nearly three decades, however, at this point in my life I no longer want to commit to 9 to 10 months out of every year being on the road. This in no small way is because I have finally found and married the love of my life, Mary, and I want to share more of my life with her. I must tell you though that I in no way intend to „retire“. In fact to this end I am in negotiations with a major artist right now that will require much less time away from home and loved ones. I’m still strong as a horse and very healthy thank God!
    I wish to thank all of the members of the band, past and present, our manager Peter Schivarelli, and all of you amazing fans who have made this incredible ride possible. Chicago truly has the best fans in the world! I look forward to making more music in the near future and appreciate your continued support. Stay tuned!
    With much gratitude, Tris

    Ich empfinde es als sehr schade, da er mich nicht nur als Schlagzeuger, sondern auch als Mensch begeistert hat. Sowohl auf der Bühne, als auch – wenn man ihm direkt gegenüber stand – hat dieser Mann eine unglaubliche Wärme, Freundlichkeit und Fröhlichkeit ausgestrahlt. Allerdings kann ich seine Gründe sehr gut verstehen und darum wünsche ich ihm alles, alles gute.

    Hi everyone,
    I’m sure many of you are still reeling from Tris’s announcement the other day. I have to tell you, it was so heartwarming to see all the love, admiration, respect and appreciation for Tris coming from all of you! He so deserves the praise because not only is he a brilliant musician, but he’s also one hell of a nice guy! Seriously, one of the sweetest people I’ve ever known and an absolute thrill to play music with!
    I am coming to you today with a heavy heart to announce that I am also leaving Chicago. In fact, we both played our last show earlier this week. Let me just start off by saying that for me, musically, playing with Chicago was like a match made in heaven! It truly was. It felt so natural from the very start. This amazing music is as much a part of my life as it is yours. To be offered the opportunity to play with such an incredible lineup of A-list musicians was a blessing, a privilege and an honor! Every time we got on stage to play for you, it brought me great joy, as I hope it did for you. This decision was made after much deliberation and consideration for what is best for my family and my career.
    As many of you know, my family is my whole world! I cherish them above all else. It can be very difficult at times to find the right balance in life between work and happiness, or even how you define success. You have to weigh the sacrifices, decide what is most important to you and stand up for what you believe is right. We’ve all faced this same dilemma at some point, I’m sure. As Tris eluded, the scale here leans more and more towards heavy touring, with NO time for anything else. It wasn’t the right balance for me. As Chicago moves forward, I wish them continued success with their long and illustrious career. I want to thank my buddy Keith Howland for not only finding me, but helping me prepare for the show. To my friend and partner in rhythm, Tris, I truly believe we were destined to play together my friend. I also want to thank all the amazing Chicago fans who so warmly embraced the new guy! You are all very inspiring! To my Bus #2 peeps, I love you! What an amazing band that would be!!
    Although I’m saying goodbye to touring with Chicago, this doesn’t mean I’m saying goodbye to you. On the contrary … I’m not going anywhere! I have a lot of new music coming your way as I’m in the process of finishing my 3rd and latest solo CD with the first single and video to hit in Feb. I’ll also be completing a really cool band project with some very special people. And touring is not out of the picture either. So, I hope you will continue to follow me as I move forward on the next phase of my musical journey.
    With much love!
    Jeff

    Tja, dazu fällt mir wenig ein. Einen vermutlich nicht eben schlecht bezahlten Job für die Familie und die Möglichkeit, weiterhin eigene Musik machen zu können (was beim Tourprogramm von Chicago so gut wie unmöglich wäre) aufzugeben, spricht für ihn. Ich habe ihn einmal erlebt und war ziemlich sprachlos: perfekte Stimme, sympathisches Auftreten.

    Alles Gute.

    To our beloved fans,
    As many of you have already heard, our long-time drummer Tris Imboden has resigned. For nearly thirty years Tris has shared his tremendous talent, and indeed his life, with Chicago. We are fortunate to have known him and grateful to have shared the stage with him these many years. He has been a great friend and band mate and we’ll miss his enthusiasm and contagious smile. We wish Tris and Mary a lifetime of happiness together.
    Walfredo Reyes Jr. has been touring with Chicago for many years as percussionist, but as most of you already know, he is also an accomplished drummer. Walfredo has been fusing the two disciplines of drummer and percussionist since his teen-age years and has toured and/or recorded with an impressive number of artists including Carlos Santana, Steve Winwood and Smokey Robinson, just to name a few. We are thrilled that he will be taking over on drums as we continue our 2018 tour.
    We are also saying goodbye to our newest band mate Jeff Coffey, talented bassist and vocalist. While Jeff was only with us for a short time, we are grateful for his considerable contributions and his dedication. We wish him continued success with his solo career and in all his professional endeavors.
    The rigors of touring are immense. Now, in our 51st consecutive year of touring, we understand the toll it takes on families, the birthdays and milestones that are missed and the strain of being away from loved ones for weeks at a time. Chicago routinely plays over 100 events a year. When you add in travel days, band members are away from home for over 150 days a year. It is a difficult life, but also one filled with tremendous rewards. We look forward to sharing those rewards as we welcome new members to the band.
    Many of you are already familiar with Canadian Neil Donell who has been enthusiastically received as a guest vocalist with Chicago on occasion, we now welcome him as an official band member taking over lead tenor vocals. On bass we will be joined by Brett Simons who has toured and recorded with musical icons such as Brian Wilson, Fiona Apple and Melissa Etheridge. We will be posting more about these new members in the weeks and months to come, and hope you will embrace them with the same love and support you have for all present and former Chicago band members.
    –Chicago, the band

    Ja, live sind sie sicher wieder besser als in den 90ern.

    Ich weiß nicht, ob sonst noch jemand das oben erwähnte Boxset hat. Da sind viele gute Aufnahmen drauf und ein paar ganz schlimme  :wacko: . Der Sound ist unterschiedlich, z.B. die Aufnahmen von der Isle of Wight sind natürlich nicht perfekt, aber doch sehr lohnenswert.

    Ich kenne sie live erst seit 2005(?) und die Konzerte waren – auch was die Tonqualität angeht – sehr gut. Der Preis für die Box ist ja schon ein bisschen happig. Lohnt sich das? Also nicht nur als „haben müssen zum vervollständigen“ sondern zum hören und genießen?
