● The self-described “rock and roll band with horns,” Chicago, will take the stage at the Toledo Zoo Amphitheater at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday. The band formed in Chicago in 1967 and began as a politically charged, sometimes experimental rock band before moving to a softer sound, generating several hit ballads. Chicago had a steady stream of hits throughout the 1970s and 1980s and over the course of its career has had five No. 1 albums and 21 Top 10 singles, second only to the Beach Boys in Billboard singles and albums chart success among American bands. Tickets to the show at the zoo are $76, $56, and $38.50 and can be purchased at the zoo box office, Ticketmaster outlets and ticketmaster.com.
