Touring: Chicago and Earth, Wind & Fire to Tour Together Again This Summer

One of the best summer tour matchups of the last decade is going out on the road again this summer.

While, at first glance, Chicago and Earth, Wind & Fire would appear to be from different worlds, their horn-based music compliments each other perfectly.

The bands will join together for the Heart and Soul Tour 2015 starting on July 15 in Concord, CA and play 25 shows, ending September 6 in Atlantic City, NJ.

Lee Loughnane of Chicago said of the pairing "One of the most exciting things about the show is when both bands perform at the end of the concert. Having these 21 very talented musicians playing our greatest hits together puts the excitement level at a fever pitch! From the Heart of Chicago and the Soul of Earth, Wind & Fire, it is an unforgettable experience."

Phillip Bailey of Earth Wind & Fire added "This is a real treat for fans of both groups to experience again the power-packed collaboration of Earth, Wind & Fire and Chicago. We are looking forward to it ourselves – it has always been one of our favorite tours."

This is the third time the two groups have toured together after 2004/05 and 2009 treks.
