Some legendary and Grammy-Award winning will be coming to the Ruoff Music Center this summer. Carlos Santana and Earth, Wind & Fire are preparing for a huge North American tour this summer that stops in Noblesville, Indiana on July 10th at the Ruoff Music Center. This isn’t the first time the two have toured together. Recently, on the Music Vibes Podcast, I was able to chat with EWF lead singer Philip Bailey about the upcoming tour. He informed me that they opened for Santana back in the 1975. So, it should bring back some fantastic memories.
Earth, Wind & Fire is one of music’s most celebrated musical forces in history with an iconic music catalogue that has been the soundtrack of millions of lives around the world.
“It is a great joy and honor to co-share music with the magnificent elements of Earth, Wind & Fire. We look forward to delight, joy and ecstasy!”, says Santana. “I feel like a 20 year old on stage playing with my band, and they deliver incredible energy on every song. When we hit the stage, we know we will touch your heart and make you dance, sing, cry, laugh and leave your worries and fears behind. The shows will feature the hits of yesterday, today and tomorrow…with energy!”
“We are excited to rock the USA alongside our friend Carlos Santana and his band with their off-the-chart musicianship and high energy show,” said EWF lead vocalist Philip Bailey. “We‘re going to bring the mighty elements of the universe to the stage and take fans on a journey they’ll never forget. This is gonna be a blast!”
In my chat with Bailey, we also revisited the upcoming 45-Year Anniversary for their album “That’s The Way of the World”. Which includes hit singles, “Shining Star”, and “That’s The Way of The World”. That album paved the way for an unforgettable career full of hits. Bailey also released a solo album last year titled ” Love Will Find A Way,” so we discussed that as well.
