New show announcements: Boston, M83, Lord Huron & Nathaniel Rateliff

We've been a bit neglectful with updates lately, so today we've got a trio of new shows at downtown Raleigh's medium-sized shed, Red Hat Amphitheater.

First, classic rockers Boston will hit the road on a 40th anniversary tour this year and they'll play the Raleigh amphitheater on Friday, May 6. Tickets will go on sale at 10 a.m. on Friday, February 26, via the Duke Energy Center box office and Ticketmaster for $29.50 to $75. The Live Nation pre-sale will begin at 10 a.m. on Wednesday, February 24.

[UPDATE: Boston has canceled their North Carolina shows including Raleigh in protest of the state's HB2 legislation. Ticket Refunds are available at the point of purchase.]
