Chicago and Earth Wind & Fire are teaming up again on tour this summer. Word’s out that the brass-driven lineups will hit the road for seven weeks beginning July 15th in Concord, California and concluding the night before Labor Day in Atlantic City, New Jersey.

Chicago’s Lee Loughnane says, “One of the most exciting things about the show is when both bands perform at the end of the concert. Having these 21 very talented musicians playing our greatest hits together puts the excitement level at a fever pitch! From the heart of Chicago and the soul of Earth, Wind & Fire, it is an unforgettable experience.”

Earth Wind & Fire’s Philip Bailey adds, “This is a real treat for fans of both groups to experience again the power-packed collaboration of Earth, Wind & Fire and Chicago. We are looking forward to it ourselves –- it has always been one of our favorite tours.”

This will be the third time that Chicago and Earth Wind & Fire have shared stages. They did it in 2004 and again in 2009.
