“Chicago and Earth, Wind & Fire… The Heart and Soul Tour has thrilled audiences across the USA,” Robert Lamm of Chicago said. “Now it will be an honor to bring this celebration to our fans in Canada, finally! And it’s our honor once again to share the stage with our brothers.”
“There’s a saying that goes, ‘if it’s not broken there is no need to change it,” Indeed,” says Philip Bailey of Earth, Wind & Fire. “The powerful magic of Chicago and Earth, Wind & Fire works for both bands and fans alike. Here we go again!”
The Heart and Soul Tour’s initial run kicked off July 15, 2015 in Concord, CA. Fans in more than 25 cities such as Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Atlanta and Boston came out to wildly energetic, enthralling and critically-acclaimed shows. Due to high demand, the bands embarked on the 15-city Heart and Soul Tour 2.0 beginning March 23, 2016 in Jacksonville, FL before concluding on April 18 at New York City’s famed Madison Square Garden.
Rolling Stone has hailed the co-headliners’ show an “effortlessly blending of catalogs into one superjam” while Atlanta Journal-Constitution called the show as “a combination of brilliantly constructed songs that infest your soul and dazzling showmanship that gets the job done.”
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch raved about the show’s finale, featuring both bands on stage, as a “winning combination and a fitting capper to an evening of music that was at once warmly nostalgic and stirringly vital.” Likewise, the Arizona Republic described the “joy they invested in bringing the show to a climax with all 21 musicians joining forces while treating the fans to such crowd-pleasing triumphs… was as contagious as the songs themselves.”
With more than 200 million albums sold and 20 GRAMMY® nominations between them, the tour will continue to provide unparalleled entertainment from two of America’s most legendary musical groups. Billboard hails that Chicago is one of “the most successful American rock band[s] of all time, in terms of both albums and singles” and “been able to fill arenas with satisfied fans” with music that has endured throughout time while Rolling Stone has described Earth, Wind & Fire as “a funk-fusion powerhouse that changed the sound and history of popular music.” In February 2016, Earth, Wind & Fire received a GRAMMY Lifetime Achievement Award; in April, Chicago was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center after receiving their first nomination to be inducted since becoming eligible in 1994.
