Tickets go on sale Feb. 26 to see the legendary band Chicago inside The Pearl at The Palms hotel-casino on July 9.

2016 marks Chicago's 49th consecutive year of touring without missing a single concert date.

Hailed as one of the “most important bands in music since the dawn of the rock and roll era” by former President Bill Clinton, the legendary rock and roll band with horns, Chicago, came in at No. 9, the highest charting American band in Billboard Magazine’s recent Hot 200 All-Time Top Artists. And Chicago is the first American rock band to chart Top 40 albums in six consecutive decades.

The band is also being inducted into the 2016 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in April.

Chicago’s debut album, Chicago Transit Authority (1969), was inducted into the GRAMMY Hall Of Fame in 2014, and the band performed on the Grammy stage for the first time that year.

Chicago’s newest record of studio tracks, “NOW” CHICAGO XXXVI, was released on Frontiers Records in 2014 featuring 11 brand new songs recorded on the road.

The line-up includes original band members Robert Lamm on keyboards and vocals, Lee Loughnane on trumpet and vocals, James Pankow on trombone and Walt Parazaider on woodwinds, as well as Jason Scheff on bass and vocals, Tris Imboden on drums, Keith Howland on guitar and vocals, Lou Pardini on keyboards and vocals, and Walfredo Reyes, Jr. on percussion.

Doors at The Pearl will open at 7 p.m. and show time is 8 p.m. Tickets start at $75, plus any additional service fees and go on sale Friday, February 26 at noon. The Pearl Box Office is open daily from noon until 7 p.m. with extended hours on select event days.
