News Release
Thursday, May 03, 2018

GALVESTON ISLAND, TEXAS - On Saturday, May 12, 2018, at 4pm and 8pm, The Grand 1894 Opera House presents the 50th Anniversary Tour of Blood Sweat & Tears. Tickets may be purchased at The Grand’s Box Office, 2020 Postoffice Street, by calling 409.765.1894, 800.821.1894, or online at

One of the top touring attractions of the past five decades. Blood Sweat & Tears combined rock, blues, and pop music, with horn arrangements and jazz improvisation to create a musical hybrid known as “jazz-rock.” When original founder and drummer Bobby Colomby assembled the first generation of Blood Sweat & Tears in 1967, he − nor anyone else − thought that 50 years later, BS&T would still be a top touring band. The original group received ten Grammy nominations and won three Grammys including “1970 Album of the Year,” beating out the Beatles Abby Road. Some of the greatest musicians in the world have passed through BS&T, including more than 175 performers during various iterations of the band. Fifty years of touring is a stellar tribute to Colomby’s vision of “Great Musicians equal Great Music." Join BS&T for their debut performance at The Grand 1894 Opera House, and enjoy their Top 40 Billboard hits, including “Spinning Wheel,” “And When I Die,” “You’ve Made Me So Very Happy,” “God Bless the Child,” and many more.

This performance is sponsored in part by Galveston Restaurant Group.
