An exclusive CD bundle of their new release, along with a bonus CD featuring six of their greatest hits, is now available for pre-order at HSN.com for $12.95.
“The Now, Then & Forever album is really about the legacy of Earth, Wind & Fire,” said co-founder Philip Bailey. “The album gave us the opportunity to tie everything together musically and culturally,” said EWF’s co-founder Verdine White. “Without the support of the fans around the world, the Earth, Wind & Fire journey would not have been possible. We dedicate this album, Now, Then & Forever, to all the fans.”

HSN has also enlisted the expertise of music television Executive Producer Barry Summers and Director Milton Lage. Summers has extensive experience producing 3D & high-definition music concert events for VH1 & AXS TV (formerly HDNET), while Lage has directed numerous MTV shows and live musical performances by superstars such as Mariah Carey, Carrie Underwood and Beyonce.
“HSN is thrilled to welcome Earth, Wind & Fire to the HSN Live stage at The Venetian Las Vegas,” said Andy Sheldon, Chief Creative Officer for HSNi and General Manager of HSN Productions. “Earth, Wind & Fire is known for their elaborate, high-energy live shows and with Barry Summers and Milton Lage at the helm, I know this will be our best HSN Live production to date.”
The concert will be a 90-minute live show, with 60 minutes on HSN TV, followed by a special 30-minute encore performance that streams live across HSN’s digital platforms. Music streaming service Songza will offer a special Earth, Wind & Fire/HSN playlist for subscribers during the week leading up to the show and will stream the event live on August 30.
“I’m very excited to be working with Andy and the visionary HSN team to deliver a new level of live concert programming beyond High Definition to global audiences and new emerging distribution platforms,” said Summers. “I’m honored to be working with the legendary band Earth, Wind & Fire to kickoff this new series.”
