GALVESTON — The Pointer Sisters will make their first appearance at The Grand 1894 Opera House, 2020 Postoffice St., at 8 p.m. Sept. 13.

Ruth Pointer, Anita Pointer and Ruth’s granddaughter Sadako will deliver an exciting evening of memorable Pointer hits.

The Pointer Sisters lit up the 1980s 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 have 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.

In 1994, The Pointers appeared in a 46-week, worldwide 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, billboard.com named them one of The Top 10 Best Girls Groups of All Times.

Tickets begin at $48. Call 409-765-1894, 800-821-1894 or visit www.thegrand.com.
