Earth, Wind & Fire Teams With Chic ft. Nile Rodgers

Promising an evening of “non-stop entertainment,” Earth, Wind & Fire is hitting the road with Chic featuring Nile Rodgers for a summer co-headline tour in July. 

Attendees should get ready to show off their moves because “2054 The Tour” will feature a guest DJ and “a specialized seating configuration toward the front of the stage where seats will have additional space between them to encourage audiences to dance the night away.”

The fun begins July 12 with a gig at Oracle Arena in Oakland, Calif. The tour travels to the East Coast and then wraps up with an Aug. 22 performance at DTE Energy Music Theatre in Clarkston, Mich. 

Cities on the routing include Sacramento, Phoenix, Denver, Cleveland, Boston, Toronto and Nashville. 

“Nile Rodgers and CHIC are legendary for their iconic style, song, sound, and groove,” Philip Bailey, co-founder of Earth, Wind & Fire, said. “Get ready for a non-stop 2054 party!”
“There was a time when we could only dream of ‘seeing’ Earth, Wind & Fire live, now we get the honor of sharing the stage together. Get your feet ready for a deluge of hits,” Rodgers said.
