Making its presence known, The Sun, in its noontime glory, took center stage for a blazing seven hour set that included such sparkling originals as ‘Sunshine For My Soul’ ‘Today Was a Good Day’ ‘The Light’ ‘Beam’ ‘Shine On’ and ‘I’m In It To Win It’. The show began in stellar fashion and maintained its form throughout the day. It was obvious from the get go that the fans were in for something special. Early on The Sun belted out a dazzling rendition of Johnny Nash’s ‘I Can See Clearly’. By dusk the show should’ve been over, but for an encore, The Sun brought The Moon on stage for an illuminated duet, an original entitled, ‘Am I My Brother’s Keeper’. It was absolutely a magnificent performance comparable to nothing words can describe. Chicago felt blessed. The spectacle was the highlight of the summer tour. Opening for The Sun were local acts From the Break of Dawn and Morning Fog.
