New York, NY-March 14, 2002 -- One of the most popular live acts in rock music history has announced a 2003 summer tour. The long-awaited return of BOSTON will reunite guitarist, producer and songwriter Tom Scholz with original lead singer Brad Delp and will kick off on June 6th at Verizon Wireless Arena in Manchester, NH. The 48 city nationwide US tour will mark the first time in 6 years that the record-breaking rock band BOSTON has appeared in concert. The tour will also support a 5th album of new material called CORPORATE AMERICA on the Artemis Records label. Two singles, Someone and Livin' for You will hit the airwaves March 24, 2003.

In addition to vocalist Brad Delp, Tom Scholz (guitar, keyboards, vocals) will be joined by new band members Kimberley Dahme (bass, vocals), and Anthony Cosmo (guitar, backing vocals), both of whom contributed as songwriters and performers on BOSTON's new Corporate America album. Fran Cosmo (vocals, guitar), Gary Pihl (guitar, keyboards, backing vocals); and Jeff Neal (drums), complete the touring lineup.

BOSTON still holds sales records for its debut album, which sold over 16 million copies. They pioneered the art of recording a major release in a homebuilt studio, and are the only band in history to have recorded consecutive multi-platinum albums in their basement. Despite the fact that BOSTON has never made a music video or performed on television, their endurance as one of the most in-demand concert groups is a genuine tribute to the number of hit songs and the dynamic and compelling shows they put on. This is particularly evidenced by some of the large venues that are going on sale soon as opposed to some chart-topping artists who are playing mid-size venues or co-headlining.

Since its inception, BOSTON has opposed violence and cruelty of any kind, and they walk it like they talk it. This is evidenced in their daily way of life and commitment politically and financially to organizations such as PETA, The National Coalition Against Domestic Violence, National Committee to Prevent Child Abuse and other worthy causes.
