Another band with Illinois Roots, in fact named after the state's largest city, is coming to Bloomington for a free concert to benefit victims of November's tornado. The Grammy winning band Chicago will be at the U.S. Cellular Coliseum Wednesday January 29th. A sponsorship from Bloomington-based Country Financial means no admission to the show. The Coliseum was the site of the first concert for victims of the violent storms that day, and the Champaign based band REO Speedwagon is making it's second appearance in the twin cities as they play a benefit show at ISU's Braden Auditorium Thursday February 6th. The two bands are also scheduled to tour together later this year.
