On the heels of two sold-out Journey shows, Rick Bartalini Presents (RBP) very proudly announces another concert and geo-limited presale for the people of Hawai’i: Earth, Wind & Fire!
Beloved around the globe for more than 50 years, the legendary Earth, Wind & Fire is one of the best-selling and most influential bands of all time. Throughout their incredibly illustrious career, the band has amassed a treasured catalog of music that’s infused with strands of disco, funk, and R&B. Known for their uplifting and joyful songs, Earth, Wind & Fire is guaranteed to get the people of Hawai’i grooving with the hits that we’ve all been singing and dancing to for generations. Joining the band is special guest Jonathan Roy, a versatile independent artist who defies borders and genres and is known worldwide for his astonishing success on digital media platforms.
From the time of their first live performance in the Aloha State in 1975, Earth, Wind & Fire has been enthusiastically welcomed back time and again by the people of Hawai’i. One of the few bands to not just journey to the Islands but to do so repeatedly, Earth, Wind & Fire continues to draw devoted crowds, selling out all six of their shows in the 2000s. The adoration that the people of Hawai’i have for the iconic supergroup is mutual. Members of the band have expressed appreciation for the astonishing energy of Hawaiian audiences and percussionist Ralph Johnson has said that, “It’s always a treat for us (to perform in Hawai’i) … For us, this is just the cherry on top.”
Rick Bartalini Presents (RBP) has confirmed that Earth, Wind & Fire will appear for one performance only. No additional shows will be added.
As always, RBP remains committed to making sure that the people of Hawai’i get first crack at the best seats at the best prices. The promoter is once again offering geo-limited week-long online-only presales for Hawai’i residents that will begin at 10:00 A.M. HST on Saturday, October 22 at ticketmaster.com. No password will be required. RBP strongly encourages the people of Hawai’i to take advantage of the geo-limited presales and get their tickets before they go on sale to the mainland on October 29. Once the presale ends, the geofence will be removed and global scalpers and bots can no longer be excluded.
The exclusive on-line only presale for Hawai’i residents goes on sale Saturday, October 22 at 10:00 A.M. HST. No password is required. Up to eight tickets may be purchased by one patron.
Tickets go on sale to the mainland starting Saturday, October 29 at 10:00 A.M. HST.
