The Kingston Trio Concert Tickets

Without the Kingston Trio, the entire music landscape as we know it would not exist today. One of the first international sensations, The Kingston Trio were trailblazers and influences for nearly every major music act from the 1960's to the modern era. With over 20 albums than span the length of their over 50-year career, The Kingston Trio has been a constant presence in the music industry and their tireless dedication to perfecting their craft have earned them their spot in the history books as one of the greatest bands ever to grace the airwaves and stages across the world. The current line-up of the Kingston Trio still makes special appearances to play their incredible repertoire for fans who knew them in their heyday as well as fans of the newest generation, and StubHub has concert tickets available now for all of their upcoming performances that are sure to be legendary.


The Kingston Trio Tickets

Childhood friends Dave Guard and Bob Shane recruited Nick Reynolds to form the first iteration of The Kingston Trio. Under the direction of manager Frank Werber, they subjected themselves to a strict practice regimen-- sometimes working on their instrumental and vocal performances as well as their carefully calculated on-stage banter for up to eight hours a day-- until they felt that they were ready to hit the local circuit around Northern California. Their big break came when Phyllis Diller, famed comedienne, had to cancel her week-long engagement at San Francisco's Purple Onion Club in June of 1957. Werber was able to convince the club owner to give this brand-new band a chance at entertaining the crowds in Diller's absence. After promoting the week-long gig tirelessly, The Kingston Trio's hard work paid off when their act was so successful, that the week-long contract was stretched out to six months.


The Kingston Trio Folk Tickets

After a bidding war amongst the top record labels at the time, The Kingston Trio signed with Capitol Records to produce their first album in 1958. The record reached cataclysmic success along with their first single "Tom Dooley," which became the number one single in the country and earned a double gold-record certification for the whole album. The Kingston Trio also won a Grammy Award for Best Country & Western Performance, even though they didn't fit into either genre. As a result of The Kingston Trio's fame and success, the Grammy's instituted a new category, Best Ethnic or Traditional Folk Recording, which The Kingston Trio were awarded the following year for their second album At Large.


The Kingston Trio Tour Dates

To enumerate the countless awards and accolades The Kingston Trio have achieved during their illustrious career would span novels, but to even hint at the undeniable influence they're had not only on the folk scene, but on the industry as a whole, can be summed up in the fact that through hiatuses, line-up changes, and evolutions, The Kingston Trio continues to inspire artists of all generations.
