Props to Tom Scholz and rock legends Boston for sounding exactly like Boston on their 2012 album Life, Love & Hope. Although never a fan of the band even in their ’70s heyday, I “went there” and was happy to find them in something like peak form: agreeable, anthemic and “soaring,” even though the late lead singer Brad Delp, who died in 2007, appears on only a handful of tracks.

Back in the ’70s, Boston and the proto-pop-punks Cheap Trick would have seemed more adversaries than allies; but time has a way, does it not? Boston and Cheap Trick aim to fill the big shed at the Bethel Woods Center for the Arts on Friday, June 27. The gates open at 6:30 p.m. and the show starts at 7:30. Tickets cost $49.50, $77, $95 and $125 for reserved seating, $28.50 for the Lawn. For tickets and more information visit www.bethelwoodscenter.org/events/detail/boston. The Bethel Center for the Arts is located at 200 Hurd Road in Bethel.
