The band Boston has just announced a series of concert dates for a summer tour in 2012.  This is not the first tour since Brad Delp committed suicide. Indeed BOSTON played more than 50 concerts in the summer of 2008 with Tommy DeCarlo on Vocals and Michael Sweet on guitar and vocals.

Michael Sweet announced his departure from BOSTON in order to devote his attention to his band Stryper.

BOSTON has not yet confirmed the lineup for the upcoming shows yet. However, Gary Pihl is on guitar and vocals and has been a member since 1985. Harmonies and bass in the band fall to Kimberly Dahme, who has been with Boston since 2001 and performed on their last album 'Corporate America'; Jeff Neal, on drums and vocals, has been in BOSTON since 2002, and Tommy DeCarlo on vocals since 2007 .
