About the show…

  • The Chicago “Color My World” Tribute Show will be appearing at Jerry Presley’s God & Country Theatres on Tuesdays and Thursdays in 2020.

The “Chicago “Color My World” Tribute show is a masterful tribute to the music of Chicago. This new Branson show’s capture of all the memorable music styles leaves audiences feeling like they’ve just seen and heard the legendary group “Chicago” and applauding for more!

Besides recording and touring, during the busy 1970s Chicago also made time for a movie appearance and several television appearances of note. In 1972, Guercio produced and directed Electra Glide in Blue, a film about an Arizona motorcycle policeman. Released in 1973, the film stars Robert Blake and features Cetera, Kath, Loughnane, and Parazaider in supporting roles. The group also appears prominently on the film’s soundtrack. Chicago made its “television variety debut” in February 1973 when they were the only rock musicians invited to appear on a television special honoring Duke Ellington, “Duke Ellington … We Love You Madly,” which aired on CBS. They performed the Ellington composition, “Jump for Joy”. In July 1973 the group starred in a half-hour television special produced by Dick Clark, Chicago in the Rockies, which aired in prime time on ABC.

We are excited to welcome to Branson the “Chicago Tribute Show”, “Color My World”. Beginning on April 7, 2020 — The Chicago Nights will feature the newly formed “Branson Brass” which will be adding all those memorable brass sounds that we all fell in love with back in 1970 and through the years.

The self-described “rock and roll band with horns” blended elements of classical music, jazz, R&B, and pop music Chicago began their brand in 1967 first called the “Big Thing”, and quickly changing their name to the “Chicago Transit Authority” and by the second album they were just called “Chicago”.

They began writing songs with politically charged lyrics, and later moved to a softer sound, generating several hit ballads. The group had a steady stream of hits throughout the 1970s and 1980s. In September 2008, Billboard ranked Chicago at number 13 in a list of the top 100 artists of all time for Hot 100 singles chart success and ranked them at number 15 on the same list produced in October 2015. Billboard also ranked Chicago ninth on the list of the 100 greatest artists of all time in terms of Billboard 200 album chart success in October 2015. Chicago is one of the longest-running and most successful rock groups, and one of the world’s best-selling groups of all time, having sold more than 100 million records. In 1971, Chicago was the first rock act to sell out Carnegie Hall for a week.

An epic band thats been to the top of the Charts!

To date, Chicago has sold over 40 million units in the U.S., with 23 gold, 18 platinum, and eight multi-platinum albums. They have had five consecutive number-one albums on the Billboard 200 and 20 top-ten singles on the Billboard Hot 100. In 1974 the group had seven albums, its entire catalog at the time, on the Billboard 200 simultaneously. They were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2016. In 2017, Peter Cetera, Robert Lamm, and James Pankow were elected to the Songwriters Hall of Fame for their songwriting efforts as members of the music group.

This full featured tribute will relive the memorable vocals of the original organ and vocalist Robert Lamm, and the voice of the then local tenor and bassist Peter Cetera which was invited to join the “Big Thing” in late 1967.

Tailoring this tribute involves all the many aspects of today’s music production that you would expect from this 4 Star production. The detailed music is well documented and presenting this masterpiece will be a fantastic addition to the already broad scope of shows at the “God and Country Theaters”.

Get ready to get your Chicago grove on in 2020. This show will be performing on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 2:00 PM. Be sure to check out the schedule for a specific date that works with your entertainment fulfillment and Hey! “just come have some fun” with us and go on the memory filled production of the story of the band Chicago.
