Following the release of her second, self-titled album and songwriting debut, Rita Wilson announced today that she will support iconic rock band Chicago for 10 dates on their Summer tour. The concert tour will span the West Coast, including a two-night run at Saratoga’s Mountain Winery.
The announcement comes on the heels of a successful residency at the renowned Café Carlyle in New York City and expands on Wilson’s already-announced dates at venues including the Nashville and Chicago locations of City Winery.
Chicago, recently inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, are the first American rock band to chart Top 40 albums in six consecutive decades. Their new documentary film, “Now More Than Ever: The History Of Chicago,” premiered at the Sedona International Film Festival in February, and won the Film Festival’s Best of Fest Audience Choice Award. Now in their 49th consecutive year of touring, they continue to be the ambassadors for their beloved hometown.
Wilson, who currently can be seen in the hit comedy “My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2,” said in a statement of the upcoming shows, “I am beyond thrilled to be opening for Chicago, a band who has made up so much of my musical life. Whether I was listening to the band while skiing down a slope or driving in my car, I was always instantly transported to the joy of their melodies and songwriting. I cannot wait for these shows!”
