Have you ever wondered how the unearthly sounds that you hear on a BOSTON album actually happen? See for yourself this summer at a live show on BOSTON’s Hyper Space Tour ! The band is currently planning four dozen shows in North America including a stop at Ruth Eckerd Hall in Clearwater on Tuesday, April 18 at 7:30 pm. Always a huge crowd pleaser with their high-energy stage show, other-worldly sound, and exceptional musicianship, BOSTON prides itself on performing a totally live show, delivering an extraordinary experience that is faithful to their studio recordings.

Unlike most bands at the time, all of BOSTON’s albums were conceived in a basement, written, produced and recorded by Tom Scholz, an MIT graduate who designed specialized equipment to capture the songs that he heard in his head. Scholz created his music with the intention of playing it live, in real time with real musicians, making it one of the few bands in history to reproduce seemingly-impossible-to-perform productions on stage, without the use of prerecorded music or technical enhancements.
The timeless songs appeal to young and old alike, so it’s not surprising to see concert audiences that span generations. Fans can expect to hear the classic songs they have grown to love, and will be treated to wild Hammond organ work, soaring guitars, and exceptional vocal harmonies, as well as BOSTON’s unique visual stage presentation, from mind-blowing lightning bolts and spectacular lights to an interstellar “journey” from the cockpit of the BOSTON spaceship, along with plenty of extra-terrestrial sounds heard nowhere else on earth.
“From the opening licks of ‘Rock & Roll Band,’ it was a night of heart-pounding rock the way it was meant to be — raw, powerful, and with endless guitar solos delivered in the pure analog splendor that makes BOSTON one of the most enduring live acts on the planet.” – Wendy Rhodes, Broward/Palm Beach New Times
“It’s not an easy task to reproduce BOSTON’s lush studio albums in a live setting, yet the sound was thick and layered with spot on four-part vocal harmonies.” – Ken Tomczak, 995TheMountain.com
“This band has been firing on all cylinders for 40 years and they still know how to give it up BIGTIME to their faithful fans! They are ‘not just another band out of Boston’, they are ‘THE BAND OUT OF BOSTON!’” – Michael Mckenna, Nor’easter Entertainment
It’s been over 40 years since BOSTON’s self-titled debut album first hit the airwaves and turned the world on to a new kind of sonic experience. With over 17 million copies sold, Boston generated hits such as More Than a Feeling, Peace of Mind, Foreplay/Long Time, and Smokin’, rock staples that are still in heavy rotation today. Their second album, Don’t Look Back was another chart-topper that confirmed their place in rock history, followed by Third Stage, which hit #1 on the charts, with the top single of 1986, Amanda. Walk On, Corporate America and Life, Love & Hope complete the band’s discography. With over 31 million albums sold to date, BOSTON has stood the test of time.
