Rock Band DLC Additions for Xbox 360, PlayStation®3 system and Wii™
Look at their career of Billboard chart topping hit singles and albums and you’ll see that Chicago is easily one of the most successful American rock acts of all time. On October 23rd, three of their hit singles come to the Rock Band Music Store!
