Earth, Wind & Fire Returning To Mohegan Sun Arena This Spring

Concert to kick off at 8:00pm and tickets are on-sale March 6th

UNCASVILLE, CT (March 2, 2015) — Mohegan Sun Arena will welcome back one of the greatest bands ever, Earth, Wind & Fire to Uncasville, CT for a Thursday, May 21st performance.

Tickets are $49.00 and go on sale Friday, March 6th at 10:00am through Ticketmaster.  Ticketmaster customers may log on to ticketmaster.com; call Ticketmaster’s national toll free Charge By Phone number 1.800.745.3000; or visit any Ticketmaster outlet.  Tickets will also be available at the Mohegan Sun Box Office starting Saturday, March 7th subject to availability.

Earth, Wind & Fire was born in Chicago in 1969 and is still making music that crosses years and decades and now connects the 20th and 21st centuries.  Rolling Stone Magazine said that Earth, Wind & Fire is “a Funk-fusion powerhouse that changed the sound and history of popular music.”

Inducted into both the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and the Vocal Group Hall of Fame, Earth, Wind & Fire has earned eight Grammy Awards and four American Music Awards. EWF has sold more than 90 million albums worldwide and remains one of the world’s top touring bands.

In 2013, Earth, Wind & Fire released, Now, Then & Forever on Legacy/Sony Music Entertainment. “The Now, Then & Forever album is really about the legacy of Earth, Wind & Fire,” said the group’s co-founder Philip Bailey.  “The spirit of the band has always been about uplifting the consciousness of humanity.  There’s a hope that this Earth, Wind & Fire music will go on forever.”

It’s a spirit echoed by fellow EWF co-founder Verdine White, who emphasizes the importance of the band’s incredible fanbase in the group’s abiding success.  “The album gave us the opportunity to tie everything together musically and culturally,” he explains. “Without the support of the fans around the world, the Earth, Wind & Fire journey would not have been possible.  We dedicate this album, Now, Then & Forever, to all the fans.”

One of the most important, innovative and commercially invincible contemporary R&B/Pop/Funk forces of the 20th century and beyond, Earth, Wind & Fire has been one of the world’s most reliably transcendent party bands.  With a signature sound beyond categories and a groove as deep as the soul of the planet, Earth, Wind & Fire has proved–since its inception–profoundly influential…musically, socially and spiritually.

Successfully breaking musical genre boundaries across 23 albums, EWF have recorded eight #1 R&B singles and eight double platinum Top 10 Pop albums over the group’s career.

EWF has earned more than 50 gold and platinum albums worldwide, earning them a solid spot on the list of all-time bestselling music artists. VH1 ranked Earth, Wind & Fire on their list of the 100 Greatest Artists of Rock & Roll.
