We did get to hear a piece from the new album that in the beginning reminded me of Eruption by Eddie VanHalen but then it became 100x better. I soooooo want to hear that piece again! It was amazing! All in all, well worth the $$$ and time to go.
100 times better than Eruption...??
I don't think any Boston guitar piece I've ever heard can rival Eddie in his prime and Eruption is his signature solo.
I am glad some of you have seen Boston recently and enjoyed the show, but I am comfortable with my stance. I won't go see them and won't buy the new album because without Delp they can never be the Boston I like. Sorry but that is my take on it.
Be honest have they even come close to their first two records?? Third Stage was decent but already the decline in the band was evident.
