DeKALB – The Chicago Authority will perform at the Egyptian Theatre in DeKalb at 7:30 p.m. Nov. 10.

The Chicago Authority is a tribute to the music of one of the most popular and prolific bands of all time: Chicago. For 50 years, Chicago has been one of the world’s top touring acts, and their 2016 induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame has skyrocketed their popularity and introduced their vast 36-album catalog of music to millions of new fans.

The Chicago Authority pays tribute to that legacy during a three-hour show that mimics the look and duplicates the sound of the touring band. The audience will hear plenty of hits including “Make Me Smile,” “Saturday in the Park,” “If You Leave Me Now,” “25 or 6 to 4,” “Hard Habit to Break” and “Colour My World,” plus selected album cuts such as “Introduction,” “In the Country” and “Flight 602.”

Ticket prices start at $22 and are available at www.egyptiantheatre.org or by calling 815-758-1215.

The Egyptian Theatre at 135 N. Second St. in downtown DeKalb, is owned and operated by Preservation of Egyptian Theatre Inc., a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.
