Earth, Wind & Fire Experience by Al McKay will bring the groove to Haydock Park!

We are delighted to announce that Earth, Wind & Fire Experience by Al McKay will headline Haydock Park Racecourse on Friday 9th August. The group join previously announced Pete Tong’s Ibiza Classics (Saturday 22 June) and Busted (Saturday 20 July) on this Summer’s music line-up.

Built by the legendary Earth, Wind & Fire “groove director” and guitarist Al McKay and featuring an array of top Los Angeles musicians, including former Earth Wind & Fire member Gregory Moore, the aptly named “Earth, Wind & Fire Experience by Al McKay” reincarnates the spirit of the original.

Powerfully delivering hit after hit of the supergroup’s songs, the outfit upholds the high standard of live excellence that established the original Earth, Wind & Fire sound. Expect to hear timeless hits including “September”, “Boogie Wonderland”, “Let’s Groove”, “After The Love Has Gone” plus many, many more.

Molly Dingwall, General Manager, Haydock Park Racecourse said

“The Earth, Wind & Fire experience by Al McKay will transport Haydock Park to the heyday of the seventies. Whether you’re an American Funk & Soul fan or just want a boogie, this night is for you!”

Al McKay said

“It’s such a delight that fans continue to enjoy and discover our music. This show is a true celebration of the Earth, Wind & Fire sound, with an all-star line-up including the legendary powerhouse vocalists Tim Owens, DeVere Duckett and Claude Woods. Haydock Park this August is in for a treat!”
