Boston’s Hyper Space Tour begins in April

Boston has announced what they’re calling their Hyper Space Tour, beginning April 14 in Hollywood, Florida. The band promises four-dozen North American shows in all but as of now the last date shown is on April 26 in Little Rock, Arkansas. Tickets are available here and here.

According to the tour announcement press release, “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 press release continues: “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.”

    Saw them in 2015 at Mohegan Sun in CT. Great show. Sounded way better than the clip above. Usually turn up here late summer.
