Chicago's Soul Train 40th Anniversary Concert-

New updated edited video

Pay homage to 40 years of Soul Train – the Chicago-based, longest-running, nationally syndicated television show – with a spectacular Labor Day concert at Millennium Park’s Jay Pritzker Pavilion. The evening’s honored guest is none other than Don Cornelius, Soul Train’s founder and host. Legendary R&B and soul artists, including Jerry “The Iceman” Butler, The Impressions, the Chi-Lites, the Emotions and Gene Chandler, take the stage with an orchestra of veteran musical collaborators led by the acclaimed conductor/arranger Tom Tom Washington.

Chicago's Soul Train 40th Anniversary Concert is presented by the Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events, in partnership with the Chicago Office of Tourism and Culture, and caps a weekend of events honoring the venerable show, including a Soul Train Photo Exhibition and Friday Night Groove Soul Train dance party with Chic-a-Go-Go at Expo 72. The concert is made possible, in part, through Amtrak in commemoration of its 40th Anniversary.
