MSG Entertainment and Live Nation are proud to welcome the legendary Earth, Wind & Fire to The Chicago Theatre on Friday, September 20 and Saturday, September 21.
Earth, Wind & Fire combines high-caliber musicianship, wide-ranging musical genre eclecticism, and ’70s multicultural spiritualism that appeals to a broad audience. “I wanted to do something that hadn’t been done before,” founder Maurice White explains. “Although we were basically jazz musicians, we played soul, funk, gospel, blues, jazz, rock and dance music…which somehow ended up becoming pop. I wanted our music to convey messages of universal love and harmony.” The recipients of multiple Grammy Awards and American Music Awards, Earth Wind & Fire have stood the test of time as they span the boundaries between jazz, gospel, R&B, blues and rock.
