This show is so popular that the first date sold out in minutes which lead to the Borgata Casino executives to quickly add an additional to support the demand. Tim Johnson said “this show always does well here in Atlantic City, it’s Sold Out every year since they teamed up, we love to them here at the Borgata!”.
The Borgata Events Center is a great place to watch a concert. The two main types of seating are the floor (all one level) and the Riser which is elevated seating in the rear of the center. Many Earth Wind and Fire concert goers enjoy the risers, more comfortable seats, easy access to bar and bathrooms, elevated above the floor seating for a better view and the sound is perfect.
It may be good idea to lock in tickets to EWF quickly as they are completely sold out and the ticket inventory on the secondary market is also going fast.
