Blues Brothers Tickets - Blues Brothers Tour Dates

Blues Brothers Revue Tour Schedule

Since first being created in 1978 by John Belushi and Dan Aykroyd, the Blue Brothers have left an indelible mark on pop culture whether it was on the small screen on Saturday Night Live, on the big screen during their self titled movie, during revival performances featuring some of the comedy and music world's biggest stars, or through the founding of House of Blues. As R&B revivalists, the Blues Brothers remain alive and well and are still a huge draw during the Blues Brothers Revue performances. The band plays songs that have withstood the test of time and manage to resonate with generation after generation of music lovers and the energy at a Blues Brothers Revue show is unmatched.

January 24, 2014 will be a memorable night for R&B and rock and roll fans in the Tacoma, Washington area as Blues Brothers Revue will hit the stage at Pantages Theatre in Tacoma. Whether you are a longtime Blues Brothers fan or are just getting in on their act, there is arguably no better show in rock and roll and now is the time to see them as the Blues Brothers Revue is heading out on tour. If you cannot make it to the show in Tacoma be sure to continue checking StubHub for the most up to date tour information on the Blues Brothers Revue tour.


About the Band

The Blues Brothers were an instant hit starting from their first appearance on Saturday Night Live. This occurred during the first season of the show when the Not Ready for Primetime Players were a nationwide sensation and actually living like rock stars themselves. John Belushi was Joliet Jake Blues, while Dan Aykroyd was Elwood Blues and the two were a whirlwind of throwback R&B wearing matching suits and Ray-Ban Wayfarers. They were able to establish a band of well known and respected blues musicians and were a huge hit with the crowd. An album, Briefcase Full of Blues was released and the Blues Brothers began to become something much more than just sketch comedy characters. Eventually the two would star in the Blues Brothers movie but the band broke up after the death of John Belushi in 1982. Years later, in 1998 the band got back together to make the movie Blues Brothers 2000 as well as head out on a world tour. To this day Blues Brothers continue to perform all over the world, often going under the name Blues Brothers Revue or Blues Brothers and Friends.


Breakthrough

After assembling an all star band to back them up, Dan Aykroyd and John Belushi were able to record and release an album of old blues and R&B songs as their alter egos. Based on the success of the album and the popularity of the Blues Brothers skits on Saturday Night Live, a Blues Brothers Movie was made. The film was a smash hit and featured some of the biggest stars in the history of R&B and soul singing with the Blues Brothers. The soundtrack was an equal hit and suddenly the Blues Brothers had an audience that extended well beyond their usual late night comedy crowd. A best of album was soon released both in the United States and eventually in England and the movie was a hit with generations even while the Blues Brothers remained dormant after Belushi's death.


The Experience

The chance to see some of the best songs in the history of pop music performed live does not come along often, and when it is the Blues Brothers on stage performing it is an opportunity not to be missed. For many just being able to see the Blues Brothers on stage in person is like a dream come true and when the house lights finally dim and they struts out onto the stage and the band picks up their instruments there is an excitement in the air that is palpable. Before you know it the iconic duo is saying hello to the crowd and the band busts into one of their classic cover songs. These are some of the most well known songs in all of music and continue to be be favorites of music lovers of all ages. The night progresses and it is like being transported back through time and being given a history of rock and roll.


Trivia

During Super Bowl XXXI, Dan Aykroyd, James Belushi, and John Goodman performed at halftime with ZZ Top and James Brown, marking the comeback of the band which culminated in the release of Blues Brothers 2000. The Blues Brothers movie stands behind only Wayne's World as the second highest grossing movie based on a Saturday Night Live sketch. The origins of the Blues Brothers on Saturday Night Live actually goes back to a sketch where John Belushi was dressed up as his bee character and Aykroyd joined him on stage playing the harmonica.
