Earth, Wind & Fire comes to Minnesota State Fair Grandstand on August 26.


Earth, Wind & Fire, one of the world’s top-selling musical groups of all time, was formed in Chicago in 1969. With a signature sound and a groove as deep as the soul of the planet, the band’s legendary journey has set the standard for music of all genres and made a profound and lasting impact on popular culture. One of the most important, innovative and commercially invincible contemporary forces of the 20th century, Earth, Wind & Fire has released 23 albums, recorded eight No. 1 R&B singles and eight Double Platinum Top 10 pop albums, and sold more than 100 million albums worldwide. The group has nine Grammy awards, was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, and earned achievements from ASCAP, NAACP and the BET Awards. Top hits from one of the most influential groups of the century include “September,” “Boogie Wonderland” and “Let’s Groove.”

The band, which was founded by Maurice White in 1969, is known for its horn section, energetic and elaborate stage shows.  Even though Maurice is no longer with us, he passed away in 2016, he remains the band’s heart and soul.  Maurice was quoted as saying, “I wanted to create a library of music that would stand the test of time. ‘Cosmic Consciousness’ is the key component of our work. Expanding awareness and uplifting spirits is so important in this day. People are looking for more. I hope our music can give them some encouragement and peace.”

The show starts at 7:30 with opener Sinbad.
