Chicago and Huey Lewis and the News Announce U.S. Summer Tour

Chicago is celebrating its 30th album, “Chicago XXX,” which was just released by Rhino/Warner Bros. Produced by Jay DeMarcus of the superstar country group Rascal Flatts, “Chicago XXX” begins a new chapter in Chicago’s history. The forthcoming single is “Love Will Come Back,” which includes the members of Rascal Flatts and will certainly add to the band’s long list of extraordinary accomplishments: 40 gold and platinum awards, 20 Top 10 singles and 5 Number One albums. In fact, Chicago is the first American rock band to chart a Top 40 album in 5 consecutive decades. This year, the Grammy-winning Chicago is touring for the 40th straight year.

Huey Lewis and the News are gearing up for Capitol/EMI Music Catalog Marketing’s May 23 release of “Huey Lewis and the News: Greatest Hits” and a limited edition deluxe CD/DVD package, “Greatest Hits & Videos.” The 21-track CD includes 20 Top 20 hits, among them 17 Top 10s and six #1 singles, and the deluxe edition’s 10 videos make their DVD debut with this release. In a career spanning more than 25 years, Grammy award winners Huey Lewis and The News have amassed 17 Gold and Platinum certifications and sales of more than 12 million albums, placing the band among the world’s top 200 best-selling music artists of all time (RIAA).
