Boston Adds Joan Jett to New Summer 2017 ‘Hyper Space’ Tour Dates
Boston's 2017 Hyper Space Tour has added more than 20 extra dates — and a new partner for that leg, in Joan Jett and the Blackhearts. Tickets for the entire tour are on sale now through Ticketmaster.
The previously announced Hyper Space dates, which pick up April 14 and run through much of the rest of the month, will now be followed by a summer leg that's scheduled to send Boston and Jett around the country throughout June and July.
"I am thrilled to have Joan and her band on tour with us this summer," said Boston leader Tom Scholz in a press release announcing Jett's involvement. "Not only is she an amazing rock and roll performing artist, but even more exciting to me is that she is a fellow vegetarian and shares compassion for animal welfare."
The Hyper Space Tour finds both acts drawing from a deep well of hits while continuing to tour behind their most recent studio efforts, both released in 2013. Boston's Life, Love & Hope marked a return to the Top 40 for the group, while Jett and the Blackhearts' Unvarnished featured instrumental and production work from Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl.
