May 27, 2015

MISSOULA – Musician B.J. Thomas will perform a benefit concert for Five Valleys Crimestoppers at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 10, at the University of Montana’s Dennison Theatre.

Tickets are on sale now and are available by calling 406-721-1373. After an initial phone solicitation, tickets will be on sale at Rockin’ Rudy’s in Missoula starting Monday, July 6. Tickets cost $36 plus applicable fees.

Thomas is a pop singer best known for his 1960s hits “Hooked on a Feeling” and “Raindrops Keep Fallin’ on My Head.” “Raindrops,” featured in the 1969 film “Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid,” hit No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 music chart that same year. The song also won an Academy Award for Best Original Song. More than a decade later, Thomas scored another hit, “As Long As We Got Each Other,” the theme song for the popular 1980s sitcom “Growing Pains.”

Singer-songwriter Thom Bresh will open for Thomas.

The concert is a fundraiser for Five Valleys Crimestoppers, which operates year-round, toll-free phone lines for citizens to anonymously report tips on criminal activity. Money raised through the concert will fund rewards for tips used to solve crimes.
