One has been a member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame for sixteen years, the other was just inducted earlier this month. Together, they make up a double bill that should be one of the highlights of the summer.

On Thursday (April 20), it was announced that Earth, Wind and Fire and Chic Featuring Nile Rodgers would set out on what they are calling “2054: The Tour”.

This isn’t going to be a simple sit and watch the artist show. Plans are to have a guest DJ with the bands and special seating toward the front of the arena that is spaced to encourage audience members to get up and dance.

The tour opens July 18 in Phoenix and runs through cities like Dallas, Chicago, St. Paul, New York, Washington and Pittsburgh, finishing up on August 22 outside of Detroit.

Tickets go on sale on Friday, April 28.

07/12 – Oakland, CA – Oracle Arena
