Ancient philosophers belonged to two distinct schools of thought: those who believed Earth, Wind & Fire were the basic elements of existence and those who preferred Seals & Crofts. Celebrate the basic elements of R & B with today’s Groupon: for $33, you get one ticket to see Earth, Wind & Fire on its 40th-anniversary tour on Wednesday, July 27, at 8 p.m. at Charter One Pavilion at Northerly Island (a $51.50 value before fees, or up to a $65.15 value online, including all ticketing fees). Seating is located in sections 201, 202, 206, and 207 and will be assigned at Will Call on a first-come, first-served basis.
In the course of its four-decades-long journey of crossover musical innovation, Earth, Wind & Fire has 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 simmers in the sonic stew 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,” “Getaway,” and other steamy ditties about faith, love, and mortgage-backed securities.
The original show date of Tuesday, June 21, at 8 p.m. was canceled due to inclement weather. The show has been rescheduled to Wednesday, July 27 at 8 p.m.
