Two of the most successful and critically-acclaimed rock bands Chicago and The Doobie Brothers – who have sold more than 150 million records combined – have announced their co-headlining North American summer tour.

The tour will conclude July 30th in Virginia Beach, VA.

“The perfect summer line-up, playing dozens of the best-loved rockin’ pop classics. I’m happy to be hangin’ out with our ‘Doobie’ friends… a great band,” said Robert Lamm of Chicago. “We’re excited to be touring with the Doobies again. I know we’ll have lots of fun,” adds Lee Loughnane. “Come see us in a city near you.”

“We are so excited to once again be sharing the stage with our wonderful friends Chicago! They’re a great band, and musically we fit together very well,” said Tom Johnston of The Doobie Brothers. “We know from past experience what a great show this is going to be for the audience. I’m sure there will be some fun musical surprises along the way too. It’s going to be a great summer,” adds Patrick Simmons.
