On The Second Day of Christmas ...

Tonight's The Night! 

Several weeks ago we told you about the new "In Theaters Only" musical event "Chicago The Band Presents An Evening Of Holiday Music And Greatest Hits".  Well, tonight's the night for this exclusive in-theater concert event. 

To help kick off the holiday season this unforgettable evening of music will feature some of the band's greatest and most popular hits, including "Just You 'n' Me", "Feeling Stronger Every Day" and "Hard To Say I'm Sorry / Getaway", as well as special "Chicago-Style" performances of songs from their brand new holiday album, CHICAGO XXXIII, "O CHRISTMAS THREE." Additionally, fans will also experience the band in an intimate rehearsal setting, never-before-seen, behind-the-scenes footage from their recent US tour, interviews with the current band members, and much, much more.

Over 500 theaters nationwide are participating in this very special holiday event .. and an encore performance has been slated for December 15th at limited locations. 

(By the way, Lee Loughnane will be interviewed this Saturday Night on Phil Nee's "Those Were The Days" radio program on WRCO in Richland Center, Wisconsin, talking not only about the new Christmas CD but life in general within the context of Chicago, the band!)

Last weekend we had the pleasure of attending America's special Christmas Holiday Concert / Greatest Hits show at The Arcada Theatre.  (Thanks again to Ron Onesti of Onesti Entertainment for making that happen!!!) 

America, of course, has had their own Christmas CD available for years now ... "Holiday Harmony".  (In fact, last year the guys sent us a new bonus track to feature in our Twelve Days Of Christmas series.  Their CD was reissued with their new recording "Holly Jolly Christmas" and they sent us a copy to share in Forgotten Hits!  "Holly Jolly Christmas" is how they closed their show at The Arcada last weekend, right after their "A Horse With No Name" encore.)

This year we've got a special Christmas two-fer ... first up, America's version of "Holly Jolly Christmas" ... followed by another track from the new Chicago Christmas CD, "I Saw Three Ships" ... which features BOTH '70's icons, Chicago and America, together performing on this track!

Both CD's can be ordered through the bands' websites ... and later this week we'll be giving away a copy of Chicago's "O Christmas Three" to one lucky Forgotten Hits Reader.  (Have YOU registered yet???  Drop us an email to get YOUR name into the running!  Today's the last day we'll be accepting names ... and we'll pick the winner TOMORROW!)
