Legendary rock and roll horn band Chicago and pop icon Rick Springfield have announced a North American summer amphitheater tour that includes a July 25 date at KeyBank Pavilion in Burgettstown.

Tickets go on sale to the general public at 10 a.m. Dec. 6 at livenation.com

Chicago has been honored at the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, Songwriters Hall of Fame, and Grammy Hall of Fame over the course of their lengthy career. The group’s latest album, “Chicago Christmas,” spotlights their trademark sound on eight original songs and three holiday favorites.

The group’s first album in 1969 scored hits with “Does Anybody Really Know What Time It Is?” and “Beginnings.” Hits in decades to follow included “Feelin’ Stronger Everyday,” “Saturday in the Park,” “Make Me Smile” and “25 or 6 to 4.”

Chicago has recorded 36 albums and sold more than 100 million records and are one of the longest-running and best-selling music groups of all time.

Springfield started his music career in his native Australia and has scored 17 U.S. Top 40 hits and is behind many popular songs from the 1980s, including “Jessie’s Girl.” He became known to American audiences as Dr. Noah Drake on the daytime drama “General Hospital,” beginning in 1981 and reappearing through 2012.

Kicking off June 12 in Concord, Calif., the tour will visit cities across the United States and Toronto, Canada, before wrapping Aug. 1 in Rosemont, Ill.
