Following the release of their sixth album, Life, Love & Hope, BOSTON is kicking off their highly anticipated summer North American, “Heaven on Earth,” tour, and has teamed up with Sea Shepherd Conservation Society to benefit our vital conservation work in defense of ocean wildlife.

BOSTON, the iconic band who to date has sold more than 31 million albums in the US, has invited Sea Shepherd Onshore Volunteers to staff outreach tables at selected shows on the tour, which just launched on June 5th in Hollywood, FL, in order to garner support and educate fans about the imperiled state of our oceans. The band will also feature Sea Shepherd video footage during each show to spread awareness about the urgent need for direct action ocean conservation to thousands of their fans. One lucky Sea Shepherd or BOSTON fan will have an opportunity to win a pair of tickets to see the show and meet members of BOSTON at select shows where Sea Shepherd conducts outreach.

At select shows, there will also be a promotional sale of the BOSTON Greatest Hits CD, including the chance to win an Epiphone guitar signed by BOSTON’s Tom Scholz. Net proceeds of the guitar contest will be split between Sea Shepherd and the Shriners Hospitals for Children.

This welcome partnership has been many years in the making. Band founder and leader, Tom Scholz, first became aware of the important work Sea Shepherd founder Captain Paul Watson was doing in 2007 at an animal rights conference they both attended where Captain Watson was a speaker and where Scholz received an award. A longtime animal protection advocate, Scholz became a fan of Captain Watson and Sea Shepherd and has wanted to become more involved with the organization ever since. He saw this tour as the perfect opportunity to make good on that wish.

Said Tom Scholz, "We are very excited to be able to help support Sea Shepherd in their heroic fight against the horrifying slaughter of whales, dolphins, and other sea creatures for commercial gain. BOSTON is proud to be associated with this desperately needed effort to protect innocent life in our oceans from those who have so little respect for it."

“We are very grateful to have been asked by Tom Scholz and BOSTON to be the recipient of their goodwill on their upcoming tour,” said Captain Watson. “We look forward to educating thousands of BOSTON fans about the importance of marine conservation, for if the oceans die, we die,” he said.

The staff and volunteers of Sea Shepherd thank BOSTON for their support of our vital work. Watch the Sea Shepherd website to determine which shows will feature the organization’s Onshore Volunteer tables, where concertgoers can learn more about how they can help Sea Shepherd defend, conserve and protect marine wildlife and habitats around the globe.
