Earth, Wind & Fire Perform “I’ve Had Enough” Live (1981)
From Earth, Wind & Fire’s ‘In Concert’ DVD, here’s the band performing “I’ve Had Enough.” This performance was recorded live at the Oakland Coliseum, December 30 and 31, 1981 during their Raise! tour and it originally aired on HBO.
“I’ve Had Enough”
Written by Philip Bailey, Greg Phillinganes, Brenda Russell
The Raise! tour was our most expensive stage production yet, costing about $700,000 in preproduction alone. Once it was up and running, it cost $60,000 a night to do the show – and this was in 1981. We had a crew of around sixty people, fourteen tractor-trailers, buses, plane costs, hotel bills, band salaries, and a host of other expenses, but we sold out just about every show in advance.
