It’s always great to knock a band off your bucket list. August 6th was the day I was able to cross Boston off that list. Unfortunately, I was unable to do it before the passing of Brad Delp. Also in attendance that day was The Doobie Brothers and Pat Simmons Jr.. Fiddlers Green Amphitheatre hosted the event after receiving a slight facelift at the entrances and the concession stands. A perk to the show is that I was able to find the free parking at the venue. Keep a look out for it next time you go. With parking and excess convenience charges, any financial relief is welcome. The evening started with rain for a while, but like clockwork, it stopped right before the show began. This rain caused flooding in the front couple rows that had staff members frantically cleaning up. There were a couple merch booths with shirts and CD’s. People were walking around selling Boston’s Greatest Hits CD for $10 to be entered into a drawing for a Tom Scholtz signed guitar. All proceeds went to charity. The rain helped the evening by cooling everything off. As the trickles stopped, the people trickled in.
