Get your coins ready and prepare for a trip to a boogie wonderland… The mighty elements of Earth, Wind, & Fire are heading back out on tour!

The iconic funk group announced on Monday (Nov. 13) that they are teaming up with rock/soul legends Chicago for a joint tour, titled the “Heart & Soul Tour.”

The 25-city trek kicks off in Cincinnati, OH on July 19, 2024 and ends on September 7, 2024 in Palm Desert, CA. Fans in the Triangle will get to see the legendary bands on August 12, 2024 at Raleigh’s Coastal Credit Union Music Park at Walnut Creek.

Tickets go on sale on Friday, November 17 at, with a presale kicking off on Tuesday for Citi Bank cardholders and fan club members.

The news comes just a few days after EWF nabbed their 17th Grammy nomination. The group is featured on R&B singer/songwriter Victoria Monét’s track “Hollywood,” which is up for Best Traditional R&B Performance. EWF’s Philip Bailey congratulated the songstress on Instagram last Saturday.

“It was our happy honor to be asked to record with [Victoria],” Bailey writes. “She is the real deal, gifted and beautiful.” He adds that the group was “over the moon” to hear the news.
