Go behind the scenes with Chicago, the legendary rock band with horns, in their new public television special. Featuring in-depth interviews with the iconic founding members, Chicago World Tour 2011 is a fascinating documentary that allows viewers to experience the band in an intimate rehearsal setting and see never-before-seen footage from their U.S. and world tours.

In 1967, Chicago musicians Walter Parazaider, Terry Kath, Danny Seraphine, Lee Loughnane, James Pankow, Robert Lamm, and Peter Cetera formed a group with one dream, to integrate all the musical diversity from their beloved city and weave a new sound, a rock ‘n’ roll band with horns. Their dream turned into record sales topping the 100,000,000 mark, including 21 Top 10 singles, 5 consecutive Number One albums, 11 Number One singles and 5 Gold singles, including 25 or 6 to 4,Saturday in the Park and If You Leave Me Now. An incredible 25 of their 34 albums have been certified platinum, and the band has a total of 47 gold and platinum awards. According to Billboard chart statistics, Chicago is second only to the Beach Boys as the most successful American rock band of all time, in terms of both albums and singles.

Now in their 45th consecutive year of touring (without missing a single date), Chicago displays in this television special how they have managed to persevere, laugh and stay humble throughout their tremendous musical career.
