Today was the service for Dave Rahn, who lost his battle with cancer late last week.
Dave was part of our road management team for several tours starting in 2003,
but more importantly was a good friend to all of us with BOSTON.
Dave was one of those rare individuals who brightened everyone's day.
His relaxed demeanor and unfailing good nature made problems seem much less important,
and made good times even better. He always found a way to see the bright side of every situation;
his positive outlook was infectious, and his calm influence always reassuring.
My thoughts of Dave are filled with memories of the fun we had on the road and
a deep gratitude for the way he took care of us. Dave was more than just a great
team member with BOSTON, he was our friend, and he will be missed very badly. ~ Tom Scholz
We are now over halfway done with our summer tour, and the audience response has been amazing! Playing to packed houses and hearing the crowd sing louder than the PA system is beyond thrilling for everyone on stage.
Appearing nightly is special guest vocalist, American Idol Season 9 Finalist Siobhan Magnus. She joins the band for a stratospheric version of “Walk On,” and is a perfect match for both the band and the out-of-this-world visual effects on the giant BOSTON ship’s viewport.
If there is a BOSTON date near you coming up, don’t miss it!
BOSTON on tour in 2014!
We've done about a dozen shows and we've been having a blast! It's great to see so many people smiling and singing along! We've had some terrific bands on the shows with us; .38 Special, Night Ranger and The Doobie Brothers. Cheap Trick starts a series of shows with us tomorrow. Looking forward to that! We hope you can join us to make some summer concert memories this year.
With final preparations complete, the first show has kicked off this summer's tour! The band sounds amazing and everyone is psyched. Performing a set list filled with all the BOSTON classics fans long to hear, as well as a couple of cuts from BOSTON's latest release, Life, Love & Hope, this show is certain to give your mind a ride. Scroll down for a full list of tour dates, and come hear the classic BOSTON sound live ... it's just like the record!
Joining Tom Scholz on stage is 28-year BOSTON member Gary Pihl on guitar and vocals, Tommy DeCarlo on lead vocals, keyboards and percussion, Tracy Ferrie on bass and vocals, and Kimberley Dahme on rhythm guitar and vocals. Drumming duties will be split between veteran BOSTON drummers Jeff Neal and Curly Smith, with Jeff handing the first leg of the tour.
This summer at selected shows, there will be a promotional sale of the BOSTON CD Greatest Hits. Each CD sold comes with a chance to win an Epiphone guitar signed by Tom Scholz. Net proceeds of the guitar contest will be split between Sea Shepherd Conservation Society and Shriners Hospitals for Children. The new album Life, Love & Hope will of course be available at the merch booth.
