"Spiritually he's been in the studio with me for more than 25 years," producer and musician said of "Get Lucky" collaborator

According to a joint release from the popular, legendary groups, a special guest, as-yet-unnamed guest DJ will be part of the show and each venue will have a specialized seating configuration towards the front to allow for dancing. The tour will officially wrap on August 22nd in Detroit at the DTE Energy Music Theatre.

I saw Earth, Wind & Fire in August 2016 at the Borgata Casino in Atlantic City. Oh my goodness, they were INCREDIBLE. Best concert I've ever attended, and I've seen Elton John, Stevie Wonder, and The Revolution. I'm hoping to see them again when they come to Philly.

Yeah I saw EWF 4 years ago. Even a little drizzle at the beginning of the show didn't stop fans

from dancing the whole show. They were very good. Not impressed with Phillip Bailey's son

singing as a vocalist.
