(fcc) Three very special guests--six-time Grammy nominee pedal steel virtuoso Robert Randolph, guitarist Christone "Kingfish" Ingram, and the world-renowned a cappella quintet, VoicePlay-have been added to the exciting lineup of Decades Rock Live's latest concert production, "Chicago & Friends."

The legendary multi-Platinum band Chicago has partnered with award-winning producer, "Decades" series creator and co-founder of FanTracks, Barry Summers, to create an exclusive Chicago show unlike any other show they've ever performed on tour. They'll perform their greatest hits with some very special guests, including previously announced guitar virtuoso Steve Vai paying tribute to the band's original lead guitarist, Terry Kath, Robin Thicke, Chris Daughtry, and even more guests to be announced in the coming weeks.

Set for Friday, November 17 and Saturday, November 18 at Ovation Hall at the Ocean Casino Resort in Atlantic City, NJ, these shows are being filmed on a custom-built LED stage set with over 30 4k cameras for global distribution that will be announced in the coming weeks.

To celebrate the 55th Anniversary of Chicago's groundbreaking double-Platinum debut album, CHICAGO TRANSIT AUTHORITY, the band will perform songs from the album both nights, including never-before-performed songs from the classic album along with the band's greatest hits.
