The Boston Parks and Recreation Department presents the 2019 ParkARTS Citywide Neighborhood Concert Series made possible by presenting sponsor Bank of America with additional support from Berklee College of Music and The Friends of Ramler Park from July 10 to August 5 in parks citywide.
July 11: Joshua Tree
Hemenway Playground, Dorchester
As the nation’s premiere tribute to U2, The Joshua Tree pride themselves with their ability to generate a unique musical experience that does not lend itself to impersonations. Without compromising artistic integrity, the band has gone to great lengths to reproduce the distinct sound of one of the world’s most popular rock bands. Unique to The Joshua Tree is their dedication to the entire U2 songbook, including early fan favorites from the 1980-1987 period (Boy, October, War, The Unforgettable Fire, and The Joshua Tree).
