Rock and Roll Hall of Famers Earth, Wind & Fire bring a night full of dancing grooves to Las Vegas with a special performance in the intimate Pearl Concert Theater inside Palms Casino Resort on Friday, July 14, 2017 at 8 p.m.
Earth, Wind & Fire (EWF), America’s seventh top-selling musical group of all-time was born in Chicago in 1969. With a signature sound beyond categories and a groove as deep as the soul of the planet, the band’s legendary journey has set the standard for music of all genres.
One of the most important, innovative, and commercially invincible contemporary forces of the 20th century, EWF has released a total of 23 albums, recorded eight No. 1 R&B singles and eight Double Platinum Top 10 Pop Albums, and has earned more than 50 Gold and Platinum albums. These milestones helped EWF sell more than 90 million albums worldwide, earning them a solid spot on the list of all-time best selling music artists.
EWF’s career achievements and their music influences impacted music history. They have been inducted into Rock and Roll Hall of Fame (2000) and The National Academy of Recording Arts & Science (NARAS) bestowed its highest honor, the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award in 2016, totaling nine Grammy Awards for the group. The ensemble has also earned Lifetime Achievement honors from ASCAP, NAACP, and the BET Awards.
Many contemporary artists and superstars, including Usher and Beyoncé, are self-proclaimed EWF fans. Alicia Keys said of EWF “the best band ever,” while Mary J. Blige showed her love for the band in her own version of the band’s hit “Imagination.” The Black Eyed Peas took the stage with EWF with a performance at the XXIX Super Bowl, and again when opening the 57th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards.
In April of 2014, lead singer Philip Bailey released his memoir SHINING STAR: Braving the Elements of Earth, Wind & Fire telling the story of triumph and challenges —chronicling the band’s iconic rise to the top. Three of the group’s principle members–Philip Bailey, Verdine White and Ralph Johnson–have each earned honorary doctorate degrees from the Columbia College in Chicago. Philip Bailey and founder Maurice White have earned doctorate degrees at Berklee College of Music.
