Shellabration is excited to announce that the legendary rock band BOSTON will headline Shellabration 2015 on Friday, June 26th at the Rogers Sports Complex in Fort Dodge. What a score for Fort Dodge! Our goal was to go big this year, and go big we did. Complete with high tech light show and an LED video wall, the production on BOSTONís current tour rocks!
BOSTON was the brain child of founder and MIT graduate, Tom Scholz. While working for Polaroid after graduating with his Masterís degree, he used his salary to fund a studio in the basement of his house where he perfected the BOSTON sound. BOSTON as a band broke onto to the music scene in a big way in August of 1976 with the release of their debut album entitled, BOSTON. That record went on to be the best-selling debut album of all time with sales of 17 million units reported (certified Platinum 17 times). The album stayed on the Billboard chart for an amazing 132 weeks peaking at #3. It produced several of the bandís hits including More Than a Feeling, Peace of Mind, Foreplay/Long Time, Rock ní Roll Band, Smokiní, and Hitch a Ride. The bandís next two albums, Donít Look Back and Third Stage both went to #1 on the Billboard chart. These two albums produced more hits including Donít Look Back, Feeling Satisfied, Party, Weíre Ready and the #1 hit Amanda.
