Earth, Wind, & Fire in Hawaii

Last night my sister and I saw Earth, Wind & Fire in concert at the Blaisdell Arena. Being able to see this iconic music group live on stage has always been on my sister’s Bucket List and now she’ll be able to cross it off her list.

This amazing 90-minute concert opened up with classics like “Boogie Wonderland,” “Sing A Song,” “Shining Star” and “Getaway” which immediately got the crowd on their feet and dancing. It didn’t matter if you knew the person sitting next to you or not, it was just one big dance party!

The founding members Verdine White, Ralph Johnson and Philip Bailey were as strong and as talented as ever. And how they were able to put on this high energy performance without any breaks or intermissions were beyond me. However, Baily really was the superstar of the night as his powerful high notes pierced the crowd.

One of my favorite moments was when the band paid a tribute to Maurice White as they showed a video montage of him as the band sang “Serpentine Fire”. It was truly a touching moment.

Needless to say, the concert flew by too quickly and before we knew it it was sadly over. And as we were walking back to the car I realized that even though my feet were killing me and my ears were ringing . . . it was a night I’ll never forget.

Sorry if it’s a little shaky. It’s hard not to dance when you hear this song. Plus my Sis was doing “the bump” with me at the time. :-)

    I was at this awesome concert! I didn’t want it to end. FYI Maurice White is still with us. He has parkinsen’s disease, which is why he doesn’t tour with EWF.
