Saturday 5/5

EWF is such an exciting live band that the PACER Center is bringing the Rock Hall of Famers back for its 30th annual benefit a mere four years after last showcasing them. Don't expect the pyrotechnics of EWF's regular tour but do expect Philip Bailey's soaring vocals, Verdine White's dynamic energy and nonstop fun, punctuated with party jams, sophisticated jazz-soul musicianship and romantic ballads. Two EWF classics have been inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame: "That's the Way of the World" and "Shining Star." PACER works with children with disabilities. With silent and live auctions and additional tickets for a pre-benefit dinner and post-concert patron party.

  • When: 6 p.m., music about 8 p.m. Sat. 5/5

    Where: Minneapolis Convention Center, 1301 2nd Av. S., Mpls

    Tickets: $65-$140. 952-838-9000 or pacer.org
