Earth, Wind & Fire coming back to the Strip

Updated May 3, 2021 - 10:23 am

Let’s groove tonight. Or more specifically, in November.

Earth, Wind & Fire is back on the Strip for six shows at The Venetian Theatre, running Nov. 10, 12, 13, 17, 19 and 20. Performances are at 8 p.m., and tickets start at $59 (not including fees) and are on sale at 10 a.m. Friday at Ticketmaster.com, Venetian.com or any Venetian/Palazzo box office.

The series is yet another indication of the artists’ and bookers’ confidence in the return of live entertainment in Las Vegas. EWF’s run follows Chicago (Sept. 15-18), Styx (Sept. 24-26) and ZZ Top (Oct. 8-16) at The Venetian Theatre.

EWF has played several Vegas venues over the years, including Circus Maximus at Caesars Palace about a year before the showroom was pulled apart to make room for the Colosseum. The band also is co-headling with Carlos Santana on a U.S. tour running June-August 2022.

EWF passed its 50th anniversary in 2019. This year marks the 50th anniversary of its self-titled debut album. Founding member Verdine White was asked about the band’s 50-year milestone as it approached two years ago. “Really? I’m not even counting. I haven’t even thought about it yet. I just feel great onstage.”
