Come Together Show Official
Monday, July 02, 2007

The much talked about Brad Delp tribute show entitled Come Together is finally set to go ahead. There was a press release published July 02.

“COME TOGETHER”

A TRIBUTE TO THE LIFE OF BRAD DELP

PRESENTED BY WZLX, BOSTON’S CLASSIC ROCK  100.7FM


(Boston, MA)  The family and friends of Brad Delp will “COME TOGETHER” to share a special musical night honoring and remembering Brad Delp, the extraordinary man and his beautiful music.   The iconic song title,  “COME TOGETHER,” was selected as the name and theme for the event to highlight Brad’s love of Beatles’ music and also to inspire a sense of collaboration amongst the many musicians, family, friends and community that loved and admired him.

Hosted by television personality, Lynn Hoffman, The concert will take place on August 19th, 2007 at the Bank of America Pavilion, Boston, MA.

The “COME TOGETHER” concert was motivated by the adult children of Brad Delp who invited  his family, friends, fans, Beatlejuice mates and members of the band Boston, present and past who shared his professional and social life for over 30 years to join them in honoring their father.

Jennifer Delp, a graduate of the prestigious University of Southern California film school, wrote and directed a film that will be shown during the evening.  It features never before seen footage of Brad Delp that expresses not only his role as the lead singer of the hugely successful band BOSTON, but the man himself, and those who loved him.

During his lifetime, Brad Delp generously supported causes that he believed in such as vegetarian and anti-violence (to people and animals) organizations as well as those that helped hunger and shelter programs. For more than two decades, he helped fund these concerns via donations to the DTS Foundation, founded by his collaborator of 35 years, Tom Scholz.  The DTS Charitable Foundation will receive a small portion of the proceeds from the “Come Together “concert. 

Most of the proceeds will go to The Brad Delp Foundation, a new charity being formed by his family members and headed by his children Jennifer Delp, 26, and John-Michael Delp, 22.

“To further honor our father’s memory, the foundation will give grants to in-need school systems, programs and individuals that provide music education. Funding will also be given to individuals that desire to continue their own musical education,” they said.

WHO: Performances by ERNIE & THE AUTOMATICS, FARRENHEIT, BEATLEJUICE, GODSMACK, ORION THE HUNTER, RTZ, and BOSTON who will be joined by guest vocalists Michael Sweet (Stryper), Mickey Thomas (Jefferson Starship) & Sammy Hagar.

For the first time in over two decades, former BOSTON band members Barry Goudreau, Sib Hashian and  Fran Sheehan have been invited to join BOSTON in playing Don't Look Back to end this special night
