Boston Remaster Greatest Hits, plus Michael Sweet Tour News

The legendary band BOSTON kicked off their summer tour, June 6 in Thunder Bay, Ontario. The tour will be stadium, concert and festival dates that will span the United States and Canada.

Seasoned Stryper frontman Michael Sweet and new fan phenom Tommy DeCarlo join BOSTON veterans Jeff Neal, Kimberley Dahme, Gary Pihl and of course, Tom Scholz on stage this summer. Gary, the longest reigning member of BOSTON next to Tom, joined the band in 1985 to help complete Third Stage, and through his efforts, the band reemerged in 1987 for the Third Stage Tour, which set stadium records across the US.

BOSTONs self-titled first album has sold over 17 million copies to date, and has seen a resurgence in sales after it was remastered by Scholz, along with their second album, Dont Look Back, in 2006. Amanda, from Third Stage in 1986, shot to the top of the charts and held a record-breaking stay at #1, in spite of being the only hit single that year not accompanied by a TV video.

With over 30 million albums sold worldwide, hits like Peace of Mind, Smokin', and Rock & Roll Band are still as ubiquitous on rock and roll radio as they were when they were new. Coinciding with the summer tour is a fully remastered Greatest Hits CD (Sony Legacy.) Lead-off singles from all five BOSTON albums will be included, as well as new photos from throughout the years and liner notes written by Tom Scholz.

BOSTON will be performing many of their classics this summer, including some fan favorites that have not been on the set lists for many years.
