From former Beatles to country-rock legends to hip-hop moguls, Boston’s live music schedule this summer should have something for everyone. Here’s a look at just some of the big names who have released Boston concert tickets for shows over the next month.
Continuing to break touring sales records into his 70s, the most successful composer of all time will kick off the second North American leg of his Out There! world tour at Fenway Park tonight with Paul McCartney tickets still available on TiqIQ at a get-in price of $95 and average price of $166. Alongside several of his solo hits (“Maybe I’m Amazed,” “Here Today”) and various Wings’ classics (“Live & Let Die,” “Band On The Run”), recent shows have also seen him perform The Beatles tracks’ “Being For The Benefit Of Mr. Kite!” and “All Together Now” live for the first time in addition to a plethora of more familiar Fab Four classics (“Hey Jude,” “Paperback Writer”).
Tickets are also on sale for another classic rock act this month with the visit of The Eagles to the Comcast Center on July 19. Coinciding with the release of their big-screen documentary, History Of The Eagles, the Hotel California group’s latest reunion tour is notable for the fact that they will be joined by original guitarist Bernard Leadon for the first time since 1975. Alongside solo performances from Joe Walsh and Don Henley, expect a nostalgic trawl through their 40-year back catalogue including number ones “One Of These Nights,” “Heartache Tonight” and “Best Of My Love.” The Eagles tickets are available for a get-in price of $56 and average price of $356.
TD Garden will then welcome the Mrs Carter Show world tour on July 23 with Beyonce tickets on sale on TiqIQ at a get-in price of $167 and an average price of $1079. Backed by an impressive display of choreography and special effects, the R&B superstar has already wowed European audiences with her career-spanning set-list. But alongside the likes of Destiny’s Child classic “Survivor,” chart-toppers “Single Ladies (Put A Ring On It),” “Irreplaceable” and “Crazy In Love” and Grammy winner “Love On Top,” recent shows have also previewed new material from her long-awaited forthcoming fifth album.
America’s national sweetheart will then take to the stage at Foxborough’s Gillette Stadium on July 26 and 27 with Taylor Swift tickets on sale for the first date at a get-in price of $104 and average price of $213 and $95/$238 for the second. Supported by UK singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran, expect to hear their current collaboration, “Everything Has Changed,” alongside plenty of other material from her chart-topping fourth album, Red, (“We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together,” “I Knew You Were Trouble”) and several of her earlier country-pop classics (“Love Story,” “You Belong With Me”).
No strangers to the concept of the joint tour, the kings of pop and hip-hop respectively are to follow-up their Top 3 US hit “Suit & Tie” with 15 Legends Of The Summer Stadium dates. Rolling into Boston at Fenway Park on August 10 and 11, there are still thousands of Justin Timberlake and Jay-Z tickets waiting to be snapped up on TiqIQ with a get-in/average price of $97/$249 for the first date and $115/$254 for the second. Fans should look forward to hearing a string of iconic hits including “Empire State Of Mind,” “Cry Me A River” and “99 Problems” alongside material from their respective new albums, The 20/20 Experience and Magna Carta… Holy Grail.
