    Seriously, could life get much better for Chicagoans these days? A hometown boy currently finds himself in the White House, the Cubs are still in playoff contention – ok, sure the season hasn’t started yet, but just work with me! – and two of the cities most legendary outfits are once again teaming up for a summer tour. Yes, Earth, Wind & Fire and Chicago have unveiled plans for a 30-date North American expedition, the first time the two acts have set out together since 2005.

    The fun will kick off in early June and runs until the first of August, highlighted by a stop at the two bands’ hometown on June 26th and this year’s Summerfest on June 30th. Tickets for a majority of the upcoming dates will go on sale beginning Monday, May 18th.

    As mentioned, this is not the first time Earth, Wind & Fire and Chicago will have toured together. The two outfits together together in 2004, resulting in the release of their collaborative, platinum selling DVD Chicago/Earth Wind & Fire – Live at the Greek Theatre one year later, and again in 2005.
