Shreveport/Bossier’s Classic Rock Summer
The upcoming concert calendar for Shreveport/Bossier could be called The Summer Of Classic Rock. Except for a couple of baby band shows, the slate of concerts looks like something straight out of 1980.
BostonApril 23, 2017 Shreveport Municipal Auditorium
In 1976 the sounds blaring out of every teenager's 8-track were Tom Scholtz & Barry Goudreau's soaring guitars and Bradley Delp's otherworldly vocals. Though the original lineup only did a few albums together, Boston's songs are staples on Classic Rock radio today.
