Finally tonight, while U.S.-Russian relations may be taking a turn for the worse, you wouldn't know it if you had been to a recent concert in a Chicago area, where music brought the two countries together as only music can. Our Kevin Tibbles was there.

Close your eyes and you won't believe your ears. The homegrown sound of rock legends Chicago played by 14 musicians who hail from

Me, from Siberia.

Leonid & friends all the way from the former Soviet Union to play in where else suburban Chicago. So what's these comrades comradery with the real Chicago? For Leonid Vorobyev's 60th birthday, that's him on bass, he rounded up some musician buddies to record tunes by his favorite band. He put them on Youtube and it blasted off like sputnik.

How many people have seen this on Youtube?

More than 30 million views.

That was only the beginning. Club owners Judy Shatkin and Chris Nibeck came in next.

My nephew was searching through Youtube for great bands and he said, this is the one you've got to get.

So they did and fans lined up in Siberian-style Chicago weather for the sold out show.

We can't believe it, too.

Jay drove in from Michigan.

They were fantastic.

In fact, some real America/Russia detente was brewing here.

The music makes us closer to each other, not political at all for us.

Before anyone really knew what time it was, the night was over. Leonid & friends played a few more U.S. gigs before heading home to Russia, where it all began.

Thank you, Chicago.
