“Apparently, ‘If it’s not broken then there is no need to change it,” Philip Bailey of Earth, Wind & Fire said. “Chicago / EWF magic works for both bands and fans alike. It’s a lot of fun, so, here we go again.”
“I’m excited to be starting another leg of the Heart and Soul tour,” said Lee Loughnane of Chicago. “Both bands are playing great and when we play together, the show rises to another level. Come see the concert. You won’t be disappointed.”
