The legendary band BOSTON will headline the outdoor festival at Marina Park on Friday, June 6 in Thunder Bay, Ontario, at one of the Canadian stops of the Great Race 2008. The 'round-the-globe motor sports event will be making a pit stop in Thunder Bay as a part of its centennial anniversary. The show kicks off a summer of stadium, concert and festival dates that will span the United States and Canada.

BOSTON will be bringing two new recruits on tour this year. Singer/songwriter/guitarist Michael Sweet, the veteran STRYPER frontman, will both sing and trade riffs with Gary Pihl and Tom Scholz on guitar. Unexpected phenomenon Tommy DeCarlo, the fan that posted his BOSTON covers on his MySpace page and ended up on stage, will also be belting out the classics that skyrocketed the band to worldwide fame.

Many remember where they were when they first heard "More Than A Feeling" or "Hitch A Ride" on the airwaves back in 1976. BOSTON's self-titled first album has sold over 17 million copies to date, and was the highest-selling debut of all time. It remains a rock classic, and has seen a resurgence in sales after it was remastered by Scholz, along with their second album, "Don't Look Back", in 2006. "Amanda", off 1986's "Third Stage", 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 And Roll Band" are still as ubiquitous on rock and roll radio as they were when they were new. BOSTON will be performing hits from all five studio albums, including many of their classics, and some fan favorites that have not been played live for many years.

Too funny.
I'm not a Scholz fan.
Great musician, but not fond of him personally.

Scholtz is a certified genius. His music isn't my cup of tea either. But the guy is smart. And a great audio engineer as well.

You talking to me? If I was on a desert island with only one album, it would be Boston hands down.

Well... I'm a genius too.

Doesn't make me any less of a dick, though... so it certainly shouldn't make a valid defense for him being an ass either. :lmfao:
