From one of Hollywood’s most iconic film scores to those rousing classics we all know and love, plus a bit of 80s pop thrown in for good measure. Symphony Hall and Town Hall – both B:Music venues – play host to some of the biggest and most talented names in music this November.

“This brand new Greatest Hits tour is about finally being able to come together to celebrate love, life, and remember those we may have lost along the way. Most of all, it’s about enjoyment and celebrating the here and now. Get your dancing shoes on – it’s time to party” – Marti Pellow
