The epitome of corporate rock, Boston has had quite a twisting career riddled with lawsuits and multi-platinum records with founding member/techhead Tom Scholz (he invented the Rockman guitar amp) at the center of it all. With the release of Life, Love & Hope last year, Boston is six albums into a career that dates back to a 1976 self-titled first record that is one of the best-selling debuts of all time. Get to the show early for Cheap Trick, who for nearly four decades has been engaged in non-stop touring and creating music that’s influenced a wide range of artists from Guns ‘N Roses and Nirvana to Smashing Pumpkins, Weezer and Husker Du. For whatever reason, unquestionable induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame has continued to elude the Illinois quartet despite them achieving eligibility in 2002. In the meantime, the band has continued to be a rock-solid live act that generates more vigor and panache than groups half its age.
