Boston, the dynamic rock group that took the world by storm with its multi-platinum selling debut album in 1976, headlines Musikfest 2016 when it rocks the Sands Steel Stage at 8:30 p.m. Aug. 9. Boston, launched by studio technician, producer and musician Tom Scholz, became an iconic rock fixture when they joined the music scene with their self-titled debut album, which has sold more than 17 million copies. Boston generated hits such as “More Than a Feeling,” “Foreplay-Long Time,” “Peace of Mind” and “Smokin’,” staples that are still in heavy rotation on classic rock stations. Boston’s second album, “Don’t Look Back,” was another chart-topper, followed by “Third Stage,” which hit No. 1 on the charts, with the top single of 1986, “Amanda.” Boston has sold more than 31 million albums. Boston is celebrating its 40th anniversary with its “Four Decades North American Tour” in summer 2016. Fans can expect to hear the group’s classic and new additions to the set list based on recent requests.
