Boston and Doobie Brothers Team Up for Summer Tour
ABC News Radio reports that the two classic rock legends will team up for a series of dates this year, offering fans more bang for their buck during seven shows scheduled to take place during June and August. The concerts are being worked into already-extensive touring plans for both acts; as we previously reported, the Doobies’ long list of summer shows already includes a few joint dates with Peter Frampton, while Boston will log an impressive number of miles during its 2014 U.S. tour.
This year’s tours come during a period of renewed recording activity for both bands. While the Doobies have teamed up with an array of current country stars for an album of re-recorded hits that’s scheduled to be released later this year, Boston recently released its sixth studio LP, ‘Life, Love & Hope.’ During a recent conversation with Ultimate Classic Rock, Boston founder Tom Scholz promised fans a mixture of new songs and classic hits in Boston’s set, saying, “We’re playing some of the new songs and we’re also changing up a few of the songs in the set with ones that have been requested over the years. So we’re very excited about it. We’ve already had our first rehearsals and they went super-well. You know, we don’t get out much, so when we get the chance, this is a big deal to us.”
