“You’re the meaning in my life, you’re the inspiration, you bring meaning to my life, you’re the inspiration.”
Was Chicago’s “You’re The Inspiration” ringing in your head while you were reading the line above? Now, just imagine yourself singing it alongside the band.
If that sounds like a dream come true to you, well, you’d be happy to know that Chicago will return to our shores again next year since performing in Malaysia 4 years ago 😉
Self-described as a “rock and roll band with horns”, Chicago is considered as one of the longest-running and most successful rock groups. The band sold more than 100 million over records and was leading the US singles charting group during the 1970s.
In the US itself, the Grammy award-winning band managed to sell more than 40 million album units, with 23 gold, 18 platinum, and 8 multi-platinum albums. Throughout their entire career, they have had 5 number-one albums and 21 top-ten singles. They were also recently nominated for induction into the “Rock and Roll Hall of Fame”.
The band was supposed to perform in Malaysia back in 1994. However, they were banned from entering the country because some of the band members had long hair. Of course, the ban was withdrawn a few years later and they serenaded the Malaysian crowd with their first gig at KL Convention Centre (KLCC) in 2012.
After touring around the world for over 48 years, they are set to visit Malaysia again next year for an upcoming gig in Kuala Lumpur.
