While Britney Spears’ residency in Las Vegas is soon coming to a close, Earth, Wind & Fire is hitting the Strip in 2018.

The group announced Tuesday (Dec. 5) a limited six-show run at the Venetian Theatre at the Venetian Las Vegas.

Earth, Wind & Fire had 33 songs hit the Billboard Hot 100 in their 40-plus-year career, seven of which claimed a top 10 spot.

Fans will not only get to experience one of the world’s top-selling musical groups, but their presence will also benefit a good cause. In response to the Las Vegas shooting in October, for every ticket sold, Earth, Wind & Fire will donate $1 to the Las Vegas Victims Fund. The charity, which has raised millions of dollars in the aftermath of the tragedy, works to provide support to the victims and their families.

Tickets go on sale to the general public Friday at 10 a.m. PT. Catch one of the shows at the Venetian on May 2, 4, 5, 9, 11 and 12, 2018.
