Concert review: Boston, Aug. 15 at the Walmart AMP

August 16th, 2014 at 5:00 pm

Boston is a ‘Rock & Roll Band’ that came to ‘Party.’ They left a crowd of about 5,000 at the Walmart Arkansas Music Pavilion ‘Feelin’ Satisfied. I’ll drop the puns now, but only because Boston provided many of their own … Continue reading

August 15th, 2014 at 12:51 pm

If someone tells you they’re going to Boston tonight (Aug. 15), don’t naturally assume the city in Massachusetts. That’s because the rock band of the same name from that very city is coming to Northwest Arkansas. They play tonight at … Continue reading

Concert review: Tim McGraw, Aug. 7 at the Walmart AMP

August 8th, 2014 at 3:41 pm
