Earth, Wind & Fire. No, it's not the reunion of three of Captain Planets Planeteers but the much cooler return to these shores this July of 60s R&B legends. And are they coming back to take in Wimbledon and try to peek at the Queen? Maybe, but they are also playing three Arena gigs over consecutive July nights for all their adoring fans. Thank you guys.

Featuring a core of: Philip Bailey, Verdine White, Maurice White and Ralph Johnson, the group manage to put one hell of a show together and with a phenomenal nineteen albums to work through there will no shortage of material. The group may also come in on an extra high as one month before their gigs over here they are being inducted into the Songwriters Hall Of Fame in New York.

They begin their three night roadshow at the MEN in Manchester on July 20th before going to Birmingham's NIA the following night and ending in the O2 Arena in good old London on July 22nd. Tickets go on sale for these shows on Friday 26th March at 9AM and cost £42.50 (Manchester & Birmingham) and £45 for London, so set your alarms early and poise your finger over the ticket links below.
