Last evening at the Grammy Museum in Los Angeles, three founding members of Chicago- Robert Lamm, Lee Loughnane, and James Pankow- sat down with Tony-award-winning actor and fellow Chicago native Joe Mantegna for an hour-long discussion and audience Q&A celebrating 55 years of the seminal band.

Following an introduction by Grammy-winning songwriter, producer, and lifelong Chicago fan, Jimmy Jam, Mantegna and the Chicago three spoke before a sold-out auditorium; reminiscing on touring with Jimi Hendrix, detailing their 38th and most recent album, Born For This Moment, and previewing the group’s upcoming documentary, The Last Band On Stage, set to debut on September 30. 

One of the more successful American artists of all-time, the Rock-and-Roll Hall of Famers, say that shows on their current summer run will wrap with two Southern California dates this weekend, and have been “the best the band has ever sounded.”
