While in Vegas on Friday night, we saw the Doobie Brothers and Chicago. I enjoy the Doobie Brothers, but never really considered myself a fan. They were excellent.
Chicago on the other hand, has always played a major part in my music. The first song my wife and I ever danced to (in 8th grade) was Color My World. I've always loved the brass in the Chicago catalog. Even though these guys are getting up there in age, this show was exceptional.
The final two guitar riffs that started the final song in each respective encore were probably two of the most recognizable in classic rock. China Grove for the Doobies and 25 Or 6 To 4 for Chicago.
What a great night, and the Park Theater at the Monte Carlo was a great venue for the show.
