Disappointed Fan from Lincoln, Nebraska
CHICAGO - PINEWOOD BOWL, LINCOLN NE
Very disappointed. We left after the first hour. With the exception of vocalist Neil Donnell (who was phenomenal), the other vocals sounded terrible as if straining and unable to reach or hold the notes. The horns were way too loud and out of balance, drowning out vocals and other instrumentals. Much of the time, things sounded very off key and out of sync both vocally and instrumentally. It was like watching a group of locals doing karaoke. Maybe the show got better in the second half, after we left? One can only hope, for the sake of all other fans who paid good money to see a much higher caliber performance.

THE WORST $1000 I’VE EVER SPENT
No lead vocalist since Jason left meant Bardini butchering some of the best Cetera/Scheff songs and leaving you feeling cheated. Yes the instruments were so loud that the Donell the Canadian choir guy’s very average voice was drowned and made even more depressing when you were expecting a voice close to either Cetera/Scheff. I’m not kidding when I say that I saw much better Chicago cover bands than this Chicago. They really need to stop touring because they’re just too old but mostly because they’re now an instrument band without a vocalist. Extremely disappointed and done with nursing home concerts. I’d rather listen to the original recorded music and relive my memories knowing exactly what to expect.

CHICAGO CONCERT IN ST. LOUIS
Really looked forward to this concert of an awesome band from my youth. However, all I can say is it was loud. The sound mix was a complete disaster, couldn't hear the vocal or instrumental solos. What a shame, such talented performers working their tails off and the result was a distorted mess. Would love for them to work this out and return to the tight refined sound for which they are famous.

Ok set 1...sub bass was overpowering....this is a jazz rock band not a heavy metal band! The guitar was buried in the mix the whole show. No vocals at all. Set 2.....again no vocals or guitar!!!! Do these so called sound guys even so a sound check? That dude should be fired! The drums and percussion were way too loud and got annoying. It was a real shame to have such a great band playing to such a terrible mix!

TERRIBLE SOUND QUALITY AND FAR TOO LOUD
Seats at Pechanga are literally smaller than airline seats. So, not a food start…. The band started out with a set that was all but unknown…. They were ok, but not the ones you’ll recognize. The guitas solos were way out there…more like AC/DC than Chicago. BUT, the major problem, as so many others have said, was the sound. FAR too loud. So much that it was distorting. That muddied the whole thing. Solos couldn’t be heard clearly over the rest of the band…horns were there, but didn’t stand out in typical Chicago fashion. Again, as has been said before, it seems like they didnt do a sound check at all. My wife literally ripped up her face mask to make ear plugs…. And we’re Chicago fans…. We walked out after five tunes….. don’t waste your money….listen to Chicago music at home….it’ll be better….
