The amount of hits accrued over the years by the two acts is absolutely amazing. On the Chicago side you have classics like “Does Anybody Know What Time It Is,” Beginnings,” “Saturday in The Park” and “25 Or 6 To 4.” 

The Doobies have plenty of top tracks as well. Songs like “Listen To The Music,” “China Grove,” “Another Park, Another Sunday” and “Black Water.” Heck, the biggest obstacle facing both bands on this tour might be deciding which songs to leave out of the setlist. 

“The perfect summer lineup, playing dozens of the best-loved rockin’ pop classics. I’m happy to be hanging’ out with our ‘Doobie’ friends … a great band,” Chicago’s Robert Lamm said.
