Earth, Wind, and Fire is on their 40th Anniversary World Tour. They play at Tanglewood on June 25, 2011 at 7 p.m. This promises to be an extraordinary event. People are already booking rooms at our luxurious Berkshires Lodging. (Note to drivers: We’ll share our secret short-cut to Tanglewood with guests of our Lenox MA Bed and Breakfast.)
Since its creation in 1969, Earth, Wind, and Fire has garnered accolades from the music industry, critics, and fans. Eight of their albums went double-platinum.

The Tanglewood 2011 Season may not start until summer, but the schedule has been announced and tickets are on sale.
