Free Shows at Colleges in Boston

Headline-grabbing performances at Boston concerts are nothing new.

The night after Martin Luther King was assassinated James Brown put on a historic performance at the Boston Garden on April 5, 1968. It was at that show where the Godfather of Soul issued his famous appeal for peace and calm as other cities across the country exploded in civil unrest.

Then, there was The Boss and his E Street Band who wowed fans at Harvard Square Theater in ’74.

In September 1991 Axis on Lansdowne Street was rocked by Nirvana the day before Nevermind was released – a scene the Boston Phoenix described as being “too many people for anyone to fall straight to the floor. And it wasn’t only the audience. From the first chord (Kurt) Cobain was like a super ball — he seemed to ricochet off the floor into the air, off the audience back to the stage, off his amp to the front, and back again.”

And don’t forget about Jay Z and Justin Timberlake at Fenway in 2013. The list goes on and on … Check out The Phoenix’s Top 40 Greatest Concerts in Boston History
