Buzz Aldrin graduated from MIT. Big deal. Anyone can land on the moon, but they can't write hits like "More Than a Feeling" and "Peace of Mind." From a Beantown basement, Tom Scholz rolled up his MIT master's degree and smoked it. Through the fumes and the tidal waves of guitar overdubs and stacked harmonies arose one of rock ‘n’ roll's most beloved and enduring forces: the band Boston.
From the basement to arenas and stereos throughout the world, the monster riffs and youthful lyrics of Boston instantly elevated the mood of anyone within ear's reach. The band’s eponymous debut album scored three top singles, a Grammy nomination, and went on to sell more than 17 million copies. The follow-up, Don't Look Back, was born at the top of the charts and sold another 7 million. Later albums, released at a slow clip because of Scholz's scrupulous nature, kept Boston’s muscles flexed and introduced the smash power ballad "Amanda" into the cultural lexicon.
For the 2012 summer tour, the band is raring to go and anxious to play all the tunes that fans love most. With Scholz's guitar wizardry on display and the wide-ranging pipes of new singer Tommy DeCarlo, 8-track memories fill the air as Boston makes its only stop in the New York metro area. Expect to hear signature harmonies and time-signature calligraphy as they play all the singles and deep cuts, including rave-ups such as "Foreplay/Long Time" and "Smokin'," with the zest, smarts, and enthusiasm of a Mensa cheerleading squad.
