Looks as if the original members of Boston are coming together to pay tribute to the band's singer, Brad Delp, who committed suicide in March.
 
The "Come Together" tribute concert is slated for Aug. 19 at the Bank of America Pavilion with a tentative lineup of Orion the Hunter, RTZ, Godsmack, Farrenheit, Beatlejuice and Ernie & the Automatics. Cheap Trick's Robin Zander and Gary Cherone of Extreme will be on-hand as special guests.

But the BIG news is the reunion of Boston mastermind Tom Scholz, with former Boston members Sib Hashian, Barry Goudreau, Fran Sheehan and Fran Cosmo. Apparently the urge to honor Delp was enough for the ex-mates to put years of feuding and lawsuits behind them.

The concert was organized by the Goudreau and Delp families, with proceeds to benefit the newly formed Brad Delp Foundation, which continues the charity work to which Delp dedicated himself.

In addition to the music, a film written and directed by Delp's daughter, Jennifer, will be shown. Jennifer Delp is a graduate of University of Southern California's film school, and will showcase never-before-seen footage of the Boston frontman.

Tickets are $35 (plus a $5 "venue charge") and go on sale Thursday at 10 a.m. through Ticketmaster, www.livenation.com and the Bank of America Pavilion box office.
