Peter Cetera Teases “Shock The World” Statement Coming Soon

by Roger Wink, VVN Music on December 26, 2015

First Chicago’s Robert Lamm said that Peter Cetera would be joining the band for their induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Then, a day later, Robert says he has received a message saying that Peter would definitely not be in attendance.

That leads to yesterday when the world heard from Peter Cetera for the first time on the subject with a rather cryptic message on his website saying that he will make some sort of big announcement after the New Years.


Yes, that’s right. Tell all your friends, tell the press, tell radio, TV, newspapers, why you can even tell The Pres, Hillary, Trump everyone. I will make an important announcement on this site after the New Year that will shock the WOOORRRLLDD! Ok, maybe not the world but at least maybe parts of the USA and Canada!

Ill have a statement that will come from me and me only regarding my participation in The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Until then, have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year and Ill speak to you shortly after New Year’s day with my earthshaking announcement regarding the Hall Of Fame!

Ciao, Peter

Most likely, Cetera wouldn’t be setting up for a “important announcement” if it were to just say that he wasn’t coming to the party, but why draw it out in such a way? Was it really necessary to shoot down Lamm’s statement? Was he upset that he didn’t get to initially break the big news? Are there big negotiations on songs, stage time, etc. going on?

It looks like we won’t know until at least January 2…unless someone slips with news before then.
