On Wednesday Chicago Address Peter Cetera Rock Hall Reunion Controversy was a top story. Here is the recap: Chicago has released an official statement about the controversy over Peter Cetera pulling out of their reunion performance at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony.

Cetera announced that will not be attending the ceremony after being "frustrated and tired of dealing" with organizers of the event in attempting to set up the reunion jam.

The band has now released the following statement, "The rock group, Chicago, is honored to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on April 8 in New York and are looking forward to performing at the event.

"The four original band members, Robert Lamm, Lee Loughnane, Jimmy Pankow and Walt Parazaider, will be there as well as former original band member Danny Seraphine.

"Peter Cetera, despite the best efforts of the Rock Hall and the band to reach a happy middle ground, made his decision not to participate. He has made it clear twice now that he will not attend or perform. Cetera, who was an original band member, has been gone for over 30 years.

"Chicago have performed consistently every year heading into their 50th anniversary without ever missing a year."

Manager Peter Schivarelli adds, "The band has looked forward to this day since they got word of their induction. They've waited a long time and are excited to perform for their fans and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame crowd." -
