We saw the massive crowd at the side stage. Earth, Wind, and Fire drew a crowd so large that Summerfest decided that they were worthy of a Marcus Amphitheater show. Chicago is a band this has continued to perform since 1967. On June 30th, we will see if their fans can fill the venue. Both bands have had numerous hits. For Earth, Wind and Fire, their biggest was Shining Star. That also happens to be their only number one song. Their Album Gratitude hit number one in 1975. Since that time, they have not had a number one song or album. In fact, if we dig deeper Summerfest fans would be hard pressed to find their songs in the top ten since 1986.
Chicago has seen nineteen members come and go since they formed in 1967. They still have four of the original members in the lineup, so the other fifteen must have been temps? Colour My World is a song you will certainly hear at Summerfest.
