Synopsis by Mark Deming
In the '70s, Chicago were the band who brought the punch and sophistication of big band jazz to rock by putting guitars and a horn section side by side, while Earth, Wind & Fire added a polish and intelligence to funk and disco grooves with their smooth arrangements and stylish songwriting. In the summer of 2004, these two ground-breaking bands were still going strong, and they treated their fans to a co-headlining tour in which each group played a set of their greatest hits before teaming up for several songs together. Chicago With Earth, Wind & Fire: Live at the Greek captures this star-studded tour during its Los Angeles stop at the world-famous Greek Theater. Chicago's set list includes "Saturday in the Park," "Make Me Smile," "Old Days," "Hard to Say I'm Sorry," and more, while Earth, Wind & Fire's song list includes "Boogie Wonderland," "Serpentine Fire," "After the Love Has Gone," and "That's the Way of the World." The groups team up for "Shining Star," "25 or 6 to 4," and more.
