David Victor Performs at the Boston Strong Benefit

TD Bank Garden and Live Nation presented Boston Strong: An Evening of Support and Celebrationat the TD Garden on Thursday, May 30, 2013. Net ticket proceeds of this historic concert benefited “The One Fund Boston” to help the people most affected by the tragic events that occurred in Boston on April 15, 2013. Concert tickets for this event sold out in four and a half minutes according to Live Nation. The once-in-a-lifetime show also featured Boston-area greats Aerosmith, Jason Aldean, Dropkick Murphys, Jimmy Buffett, Extreme, The J. Geils Band, Carole King, New Kids on the Block, James Taylor and comedian Steven Wright.

BOSTON opened the show with a special rendition of “The Star Spangled Banner” which brought the crowd to its feet in a spirit of unity. The band then immediately launched into a blistering set of BOSTON hits including “Rock ‘n Roll Band”, “Smokin'”, “More Than a Feeling” and closed the special set with the epic “Foreplay/Long Time”.

During the rousing finale of the night, many of the musicians who took part in the show took the stage one last time to sing the stirring “Come Together” as well as a local favorite, “Dirty Water”. BOSTON drummer Curly Smith as well as vocalist/guitarist David Victor joined Aerosmith’s Steven Tyler on the mic.

The complex “Boston Strong” production featured a giant rotating stage which allowed for fast set changeovers between acts. The show lasted for nearly five hours, and the nearly 20,000 in attendance were treated to a very special night of music in support of those affected and the people who care for them.
