15 OCTOBER 2008 - The best horn band in the history of popular music", BLOOD, SWEAT & TEARS announce that they will treat New Zealand audiences to their fabulous sounds in three very special concerts in February.

Currently touring Europe, the musical institution that has left an indelible mark on the American and global music scene since 1968 is celebrating 40 years of great music with concerts in Auckland, Napier and Wellington. 'Not only the first, but the greatest jazz/rock fusion band of all time' (Melody Maker)

Although there have been many changes in the band's line up over the years BS&T continues its tradition of finding and showcasing the brightest talent around the world. Whether playing their greatest hits, or new arrangements of classic songs, the band provides a night you will never forget.

BS&T's longstanding audiences bring their children to the band's performances; a new generation joins an existing wide demographic of loyal fans. 2006 saw record attendance and sold out shows.
