BOSTON, Mass. (WTNH) — Country music legend and Eagles’ guitarist Vince Gill is coming to Boston — and fans can get in for free.
Gill will perform alongside Indianapolis Colts owner and CEO Jim Irsay and his all-star band for a free, one-night only performance at Boston’s TD Garden on July 15. The show will celebrate the Jim Isray Collection — a traveling museum of rock music and pop-culture items.
Throughout the ’70s, Gill rose to fame as the frontman of the country-rock group Pure Prairie League before his career took-off as a solo artist in 1983. The Country Music Hall of Famer is best-known for tracks like The Way Back Home‘s “Cinderella,” “Oklahoma Borderline” from The Things That Matter, and “Never Alone” from When I Call Your Name.
In 2017, Gill joined Deacon Frey to take place of the late Glenn Frey in the Eagles, serving as co-lead guitarist.
Alongside Gill, other members of the Jim Irsay Band include Titanic actor Danny Nucci, five-time Grammy nominee guitar and vocalist Kenny Wayne Shepherd, and founding member of R.E.M. Mike Mills.
The Boston gig is the tour’s only stop in New England.
