Boston
Wednesday, May 10

Boston is far more than just a band. Lead guitarist Tom Scholz is famous not only for being the lead guitarist of a legendary American rock group, but also for his inventions and contributions to music. Brad Delp, original lead singer, can reach the high-notes of a screeching guitar riff. Curly Smith has worked with an incredible number of rock artists. Basically, Boston is kind of a collection of musical prodigies.  After recording several demo tracks in the ‘70s, Boston brought their music to the mainstream. The band’s 1976 self-titled debut album is still one of the highest grossing debut rock albums in U.S. history, with over 17 million copies sold. With a catalogue of  hits like “More Than a Feeling”, “Amanda”, and “Don’t Look Back” spanning decades, Boston is a band that refuses to go out of style. Today, the band is fronted by lead singer Tom DeCarlo (former Boston cover singer). Scholz, Smith, DeCarlo and the rest of Boston come to San Antonio as one stop on their national Hyper Space tour. The Alamo City’s Majestic Theatre invites rock lovers to “close their eyes, and slip away” to the sounds of one of the greatest bands to a grace the genre. $50-126, 8pm, Majestic Theatre, 224 E Houston, (210) 226-5700, majesticempire.com. — Kimberly Rivera
