Chicago, in England to top the bill at the 1970 Isle of Wight festival. From left to right; Pete Cetera (bass), James Pankow (trombone), Lee Loughnane (trumpet), Terry Kath (guitar), Walter Parazaider (saxophone) and Danny Seraphine.

Heading to the MIDFLORIDA Credit Union Amphitheatre in Tampa Tuesday night to see Chicago? At the moment, there are plenty of seats left, including a few in the front couple rows at about $300 a pop if you’re willing to pay that price. But you certainly don’t have to. There are lots of good seats under the roof in the $60 range. Or if you don’t mind being on the lawn, those can be found for about $35.

Will the set list help you make up your mind about going to the concert? Here are the songs Chicago is doing on their tour so far. With all those fancy video and light shows that accompany the songs these days, it means bands rarely change up the order of the songs they do. So we’re pretty sure the setlist will look something like this!

  • Dialogue Part 1 and 2

    Going back to 1972 to kick off the show with this one. The lyrics are a coversation between someone concerned about early 70s events like the Vietnam War and hunger. A live recording of this one is in their Greatest Hits Volume II.

  • Old Days

    A nostalgic piece James Pankow wrote for Chicago about his childhood.

  • Call On Me

    From the summer of 1974, it was the second single from Chicago VII.

  • I've Been Searchin' So Long

    A top 10 single for the band in the mid 70s.

  • Mongonucleosis

    If you aren’t already, this salsa inspired song will get you dancing!

  • If This Is Goodbye

    Fast forward 50 years.  Here’s some new Chicago music!  This one was recorded just before this tour kicked off with Brian Wilson.

  • If You Leave Me Now

    Right back to the 70s for this classic… it was Chicago’s first #1 hit.

  • Make Me Smile

    This one went through a few modifications to get radio airplay.  The guitar solo was cut short and had a different introduction.

  • So Much to Say, So Much to Give

    Back to 1970 for this one from Chicago.

  • Anxiety's Moment

    Another 1970 gem, this time from Chicago II.

  • West Virginia Fantasies

    A remaster of this one was made in 2002.

  • Colour My World

    Initially it was the B-side (remember those?) for “Make Me Smile.”  Frank Sinatra expressed interest in recording this one.

  • To Be Free

    Another one from Chicago in 1970.

  • Now More Than Ever

    This ended up being the title of a documentary about the band released in 2016.

  • Does Anybody Really Know What Time It Is?

    The first song recorded for their debut album. It became Chicago’s third straight Top 10 hit single.

  • Hard Habit to Break

    Time to head into the 80s! This one was nominated for 4 Grammy Awards.

  • You're the Inspiration

    One of the group’s most famous 80s ballads. But guess what?  It was originally a song meant for Kenny Rogers!

  • Beginnings

    All the way back to 1969 for this one.  The club scene in Los Angeles was said to inspire this one.  It was composed on a guitar that was missing two strings!

  • I'm a Man

    A cover of the Spencer Davis Group classic!

  • Just You And Me

    Another big hit with Peter Cetera on lead vocals.  Billboard calls it one of the band’s best singles ever.

  • Hard to Say I'm Sorry

    Another ’80s classic that hits from the very first notes.

  • Saturday in the Park

    You know there’s no way they’re leaving without doing this one!  it was written as Robert Lamm looked at some film he shot in Central Park in the early 70s.

  • Feelin' Stronger Every Day

    The first single from Chicago VI.  It hit #1 on the Billboard pop chart from the summer of 1973.

  • 25 or 6 to 4

    Another one composed with that guitar missing two strings! The song’s title has title has led to many theories about the song’s meaning.  Robert Lamm said it’s about trying to write a song in the middle of the night.
