Zimbelism (2017)

Tells the unbelievable story of how the band Chicago has lasted 55 years without stopping recording or missing a year of touring. Narrated by Joe Mantegna, the film follows how Chicago dealt with COVID-19, and how the only thing that could stop the band from touring was a worldwide pandemic that stopped everyone. Incredibly, Chicago was literally the last band on stage before worldwide shutdowns began. The film also chronicles the recording of their new album as well as the song “If This Is Goodbye.” The creation of the song leads to the band’s realization that they will eventually have to stop. The Last Band on Stage is a celebration of the American musical institution known as Chicago, featuring candid interviews and footage that show the band in their humanity and musical genius that has inspired millions for over half a century.
