Earth Wind & Fire Tickets - Concert and Tour Dates Schedule

The DVD
The LIVE AT GREEK THEATRE DVD is a party in a box!
(And I don't give that recommend often.
You can't take your eyes off Verdeen White on EWF's bass.)
2-DVD set

"Video ****
Shot in High Definition, it is not only a crystal clear picture but tasteful panning and chancing of shots to make it interesting without the frenetic changing of angles that plagues many concerts. This was a challenge with so many performers on a large stage. Visually, this is the best concert of 2005. "

Price Grabber lists it at $15.99!

Weird personal trivia about Chicago:
I have proof.
I'm giving away my age but just have to tell you Chicago played in my High School gym one Saturday night in 1969. A classmate actually had E-industry aspirations and booked them for us! It was JUST when they released "CTA".

3. I saw them on one of the HD channels...
... great concert! Being both a huge Chicago fan from way way back (well the first 7, 8 records at least) I'd love to check them out live. and with EWF! Thanks for the links.

I've been listening to Chicago VII a lot lately... oh, how I miss Terry Kath!

4. That's where they caught my eye too. Channel surfed right into "September"

and couldn't stop watching. It was this same DVD performace - and that's why I went looking for it.

We've got all Chicago and EWF possible on CDs plus some great imports. My partner is a collector when it comes to some specific groups. Tower of Power is another fav.

5. Tower of Power... yes!
Sounds like you and your partner's musical tastes mirror mine. Huge TofP fan here, as well.

Even before I knew that Chicago/EWF toured together, I've had a playlist on my iPod that's just Chicago, EWF and Tower of Power. No lie.

As for that DVD, I think I'm going to have to go out and get it. Can't get enough of Verdeen's antics...

8. Here, play a bit of their BEST CD -
http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/B00005LMX...

But don't buy from Amazon, use Barnes and Noble or some other BLUE store.
