Legendary Band BOSTON Kicks Off Greatest Hits Tour 2008 On June 6

 Boston

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 and Tom 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 spot.

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.  For the
