Rockers to play The Joint inside Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Tulsa

TULSA, Okla. — Have you ever wondered how the unearthly sounds that you hear on a BOSTON album actually happen? See for yourself May 11 when BOSTON's Hyper Space Tour! comes to The Joint inside Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Tulsa.

Tickets start at $75 and go on sale March 23.

Always a huge crowd pleaser with their high-energy stage show, other-worldly sound and exceptional musicianship, BOSTON prides itself on performing a totally live show, delivering an extraordinary experience that is faithful to their studio recordings.

Unlike most bands at the time, all of BOSTON’s albums were conceived in a basement, written, produced and recorded by Tom Scholz, an MIT graduate who designed specialized equipment to capture the songs that he heard in his head.

Scholz created his music with the intention of playing it live, in real time with real musicians, making it one of the few bands in history to reproduce seemingly impossible-to-perform productions on stage without the use of prerecorded music or technical enhancements.

The timeless songs appeal to young and old alike, so it’s not surprising to see concert audiences that span generations.

Fans can expect to hear the classic songs they have grown to love and will be treated to wild Hammond organ work, soaring guitars and exceptional vocal harmonies, as well as BOSTON’s unique visual stage presentation, from mind-blowing lightning bolts and spectacular lights to an interstellar “journey" from the cockpit of the BOSTON spaceship, along with plenty of extra-terrestrial sounds heard nowhere else on earth.

It’s been over 40 years since BOSTON’s self-titled debut album first hit the airwaves and turned the world on to a new kind of sonic experience. With more than 17 million copies sold, BOSTON generated hits such as “More Than a Feeling,” "Peace of Mind,” "Foreplay/Long Time” and "Smokin'," rock staples that are still in heavy rotation today.

Their second album, “Don't Look Back,” was another chart-topper that confirmed their place in rock history, followed by “Third Stage,” which hit No. 1 on the charts with the top single of 1986, "Amanda.” “Walk On,” “Corporate America” and “Life, Love & Hope” complete the band’s discography.

With more than 31 million albums sold to date, BOSTON has stood the test of time.

The band is currently planning four dozen shows in North America and is set to launch in Hollywood, Florida, on April 14, at the Hard Rock Live.
