For a band that only hoped for a couple of hits, Chicago has really withstood the test of time. Friday night they played to a packed park for the kickoff of Riverfest, a Little Rock tradition for 36 years. From 1970's "Make Me Smile" to "America," the new single from the album "NOW" ChicagoXXXVI, the band inspired the audience by giving them a healthy dose of their songs that have made the whole world sing.

Ironically enough, the release date for the new album is July 4, the same date mentioned in "Saturday In The Park."

A popular merchandise tent t-shirt had "What's Your Number" printed on it and featured pictures of the album covers from Chicago's chart history.
