BOSTON: Summer Systems Are a Go
Boston start their first tour in four years tonight in Hollywood, Florida at the Seminole Hard Rock Live.
Boston start their first tour in four years tonight in Hollywood, Florida at the Seminole Hard Rock Live. And the lineup has changed from that tour, which they co-headlined with Styx. Founder and guitarist Tom Scholz is still on board, as are guitarist Gary Pihl and their Home Depot employee and Brad Delp sound-alike Tommy DeCarlo. But they've changed bass players and drummers. The prettiest member of the group, bassist Kimberly Dahme, is busy producing Kids on Stage in Nashville and has been replaced by Tracy Ferrie. Curly Smith, their drummer for their 1995 and '97 tours, is back in place of Jeff Neal, and David Victor has been added as a third guitarist. The tour runs through September 8th in Hutchinson, Kansas.
Scholz continues to work on their new album, but it's now been 10 years since their last one, 2002's Corporate America.
