Watch Chicago Perform ’25 or 6 to 4′ From ‘Guitar Center Sessions': Exclusive Video Premiere
Guitar Center Sessions is celebrating its 11th season this year, and the 99th episode of the TV show, which features Chicago, will premiere tomorrow at 9PM ET on the Audience Network. We have an exclusive look at one of the band's classic songs from the performance: "25 or 6 to 4." You can watch the clip above.
Throughout its run, Guitar Center Sessions has earned fame not just for its high-quality audio and video production values and the insightful interviews by well-known music journalist Nic Harcourt, but also for the diverse range of artists who've been invited to perform on the program. This season will include classic rockers like Chicago and James Taylor, as well as country legend Merle Haggard and indie acts like Metric and Matisyahu. Previous years have seen Peter Gabriel, Joan Jett and Smashing Pumpkins take the stage.
“As a musical instrument retailer, it is incredibly important that we connect with our customer base in a way that inspires and celebrates the art of musicianship," Brian Berman of Guitar Center said. "The fact that we’ve now recorded 100 episodes is proof that Guitar Center Sessions has done just that – connected with music fans in a very real and authentic way that has the ability to withstand the test of time."
By coincidence, "25 or 6 to 4" is the same song that former member Peter Cetera offered to perform when Chicago are inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in April. Cetera, who hasn't played with the group since leaving for a solo career 30 years ago, said, "I believe it would make for one fantastic Hall of Fame moment and satisfy those who have always wanted some sort of reunion. ... This should go a long way toward healing old wounds and showing solidarity on that night."
