Shining Star Comes to Raue Center
Raue Center For The Arts is excited to welcome "Shining Star - A Tribute to Earth, Wind & Fire" to the stage at 8 p.m. on March 9, 2019. This tribute is a celebration of the four decade strong success, popularity and resilience of one of the most successful musical stories ever told!
"Shining Star has been moving and grooving all of Chicago for the last decade and we are thrilled to bring this party to the house," says Raue Center Executive Director, Richard Kuranda. "This will be a great night to shake off the winter blues and get the body moving to some excellent music!"
The music of Earth, Wind & Fire is timeless, and fans around the world constantly crave the opportunity to hear their songs performed live. Shining Star now fills that void! Ten talented vocalists and musicians harmoniously join forces to present a tribute to Earth, Wind & Fire.
This amazing recreation of the group's iconic music and live show is based on the 1970s through the 1980s, the peak of Earth, Wind & Fire's magical career. The show's playlist has been hailed as the definitive collection of Earth, Wind & Fire's top charting hits and includes beloved songs such as "After The Love Is Gone," "Sing A Song," "September," the remake of the classic Beatles' song "Got To Get You Into My Life," from the movie "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band" and their namesake "Shining Star," along with disco tracks "Boogie Wonderland" and "Let's Groove Tonight."
Shining Star's live show consists of lead guitar, bass guitar, two keyboards, drums, a three-piece horn section and the exact vocal reproduction of Maurice White and Philip Bailey. Audiences will leave this musical and visual extravaganza feeling as though they have been entertained by the most well-known R&B pop band of all time... Earth, Wind & Fire!
