Jazz Rock Pioneers
Blood Sweat and Tears have been together, in one form or another, since 1967. Melding together rock n' roll, jazz and soul, they first rose to prominence within New York's counter-culture movement, and achieved enough status to headline the famous Woodstock Festival of 1969. While their counter-culture reputation didn't stay intact for long, in large part due to a US Government-sponsored tour of Europe, the band continued experimenting with every genre under the sun, and remained a huge influence for upcoming prog and jazz-rock bands over the subsequent decades.
With a huge catalogue under their belts, Blood, Sweat and tears are always a surprising and lively concert act. Their current incarnation is fronted by Bo Bice, who was runner up to Carrie Underwood in American Idol Season Four. Catch Blood, Sweat and Tears when they roll into in , , .
