The Pointer Sisters to Make Grand 1894 Opera House Debut, 9/13
On Saturday, September 13, 2014, 8 pm, The Pointer Sisters make their first appearance at The Grand 1894 Opera House, in a rousing opening to the theatre's 2014-15 performing arts season. Ruth Pointer, Anita Pointer, and Ruth's granddaughter Sadako will deliver an exciting evening of memorable Pointer hits.
The Pointer Sisters lit up the '80s with an abundant succession of high-octane performances, including "He's So Shy," "Slow Hand," "Yes We Can Can," "I'm So Excited," "Automatic," "Jump (for My Love)," "Neutron Dance," and "Dare Me." Praised for their exuberant, sassy style, The Pointers performance career has included a vast array of accomplishments. They were been honored with multiple Grammys and American Music Awards, were inducted into the Soul Train Hall of Fame, and received a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. The advent of MTV provided vast exposure for their highly popular music videos. In 1994, The Pointers appeared in a 46-week, world-wide tour of the Fats Waller musical, Ain't Misbehavin'. In 1996, they were one of the legendary acts that performed at the Closing Ceremony of the Olympic Games in Atlanta. In February 2014, BILLBOARD.COM named them one of The Top- 10 Best Girls Groups of All Times.
The September 13th Pointer Sisters performance at The Grand 1894 Opera House is part of this year's "Celebrate with The Grand" lineup, which coincides with the theatre's 40th consecutive performing arts season [following the purchase and initial restoration of The State Theatre, which began in 1974], and the 120th anniversary of Grand's historic opening January 3, 1895.
