It’s more than a feeling, it’s 38 years of incredible rock ‘n roll music! Boston brought their Heaven On Earth Tour to the Joint at the Tulsa Hard Rock Casino for a SOLD OUT show. The venue was packed with young and old who came to hear the unique brand of rock music that Tom Scholz created with his signature guitar sound. The stage was filled with an amazing amount of guitar and sound equipment and the huge gong that raised up from behind the drum kit with the Boston logo was very impressive. Scholz played a massive synthesizer on many of the songs which had smoke bellowing out of it that captured the colors from the incredible light show. The band played hit after hit with some great intstrumentals in between a few of the songs and the band brought out special guest Siobhan Magnus from American Idol season 9 to sing on their song “Walk On”. Singer Tommy Decarlo, who was asked to join the band in 2007 after Tom Scholz heard some of his recordings, sounded superb and fits the band very well. Judging from audience reaction the stand out songs of the night were the 1986 #1 hit “Amanda” and the one that brought the entire audience to their feet, the 1977 top 40 hit “Long Time”. Boston has had an impressive career with 8 top 40 hits spanning several decades and over 30 million albums sold in the U.S. alone. Check out the new Boston album “Life, Love & Hope” and don’t miss the incredible live show!
