Get ready to get funky. Legendary 1970’s band Earth Wind & Fire will be coming to the UPMC Events Center on Oct. 8. The concert was announced Friday morning, and tickets will go on sale on Aug. 12 at 10 a.m.

Though 2020 was the height of COVID-19, it was a year-long celebration for the band as it was their 50th anniversary. Their music is more alive than ever and continues to stand the test of time, just like its name’s elements.

The band is known for their hit song, “September,” but they have had a total of eight number one hits and released 23 albums. Eight of their albums went Double Platinum and hit the Top 10, which makes them one of the best-selling artists of all time.

So, pull out your bell bottoms and knee-high boots from the closet and get ready to groove and get funky with the music of Earth Wind & Fire!
