I had the choice, shoot Chicago in a theater too small for a band like Chicago that's only 10 minutes from my house now, or wait a few months and shoot them at the Forum, or Staples Center or some venue like that. I chose to stay close to home to make things easier on myself. Either way, I absolutely HAD to shoot Chicago.
There was nothing complicated or challenging about this shoot. Parking was super easy on site. I had to go through metal detectors and all that, but that's not unusual as most venues have them now. Even The Whisky has their bouncers run a hand held metal detector over your body. Not a big deal. I shot from the sound box thing (I am so sleep deprived I can't remember the actual name) at the back of the venue. I was not informed ahead of time. Good thing I brought my 70-200mm lens.
This was just a simple, and thoroughly enjoyable show to shoot.
