What You'll Get
Ancient philosophers belonged to two distinct schools of though: those who believed Earth, Wind & Fire were the basic elements of existence and those who preferred Seals and Crofts. Celebrate the basic elements of R & B with today’s Groupon: for $32, you get one loge section ticket to the Earth, Wind & Fire 40th-anniversary show on Wednesday, June 1, at 8 p.m., at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live (a $59.50 value).
In the course of their four-decade-long journey of crossover musical innovation, Earth, Wind & Fire have garnered multiple Grammy awards and an induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. A tuneful panoply of styles including funk, soul, jazz, R & B, and pop are poured into a sonic stew of rhythms and stirred by EWF’s powerful horn section and African-influenced, weather-altering rhythms. The band’s 40th-anniversary tour culls tunes from EWF’s expansive polyrhythmic repertoire of falsetto-laced Top 40 hits and era-defining classics including “Serpentine Fire” and “Getaway.” With a Grammy-winning voice of his own, special guest Aaron Neville will join the band to soothe troubled minds with songs about faith, love, and mortgage-backed securities.
At the 7,100-seat Nokia Theatre L.A. Live, no concertgoer will sit more than 150 feet away from the performers, a range that may allow the band to hear every crowd member’s shouted suggestions for songs and invitations to after-party potlucks.
