Despite criticism and reluctant airplay, Grand Funk Railroad managed to cultivate a loyal fan base in the 1970s with tireless
touring and a loud, simple perspective on the blues-rock power trio sound. And now concert
tickets are on sale through StubHub to see one of the most successful hard rock bands of the '70's decade belt out those
'ol tunes that you remember rockin' to like Some Kind of Wonderful, I'm Your Captain, I Come Tumblin', I Can Feel Him in the
Morning and High Falootin' Woman. So what are you waiting for? Jump at the chance to see these guys return to the stage.
Grand Funk Railroad's breakthrough moment occurred when they played for free at the 1969 Atlanta Pop Festival. Their electric
show motivated Capitol Records to ink a deal with them at once. But not everyone was mesmerized with Grand Funk Railroad as
Capitol Records was. Radio stations shied away from them, but the group's exhaustive work ethic, dedication to touring and
working-class appeal, generated a slew of big-selling albums over the next few years. Five of their eight releases from 1969
to 1972 were certified platinum, and all the others went gold! And in 1970, Grand Funk achieved another amazing feat. They
sold more albums than other American band! They additionally became a major concert attraction validated by being able to
shatter The Beatles' Shea Stadium attendance record by selling out in merely 72 hours.
By the late 1970s and early 1980s, Grand Funk Railroad shifted in direction, and the group disbanded and reunited on a
couple of occasions. But it was in 1996 that Grand Funk Railroad picked up steam, and three original members once again reunited,
playing to over a quarter million people for 14 shows during a three-month stretch. In 1997, Grand Funk Railroad played three
sold-out Bosnian benefit concerts. To support their efforts, they released a live two-disc benefit CD entitled Bosnia.
