DAVID LEE ROTH To Perform With The BOSTON POPS Orchestra

Former VAN HALEN frontman David Lee Roth will be performing with The Boston Pops Esplanade Orchestra at this year's "Boston Pops Fireworks Spectacular" Independence Day concert in Boston, to be broadcast live from the Charles River Esplanade via the CBS television network. Roth is scheduled to perform his hits "California Girls" and "Jump" with the Boston Pops under the direction of conductor Keith Lockhart. The concert will feature its traditional explosive fireworks display with the Boston Pops rendition of the "1812 Overture" as musical accompaniment.

The organizers of the annual Fourth of July extravaganza were previously in talks to have legendary hard rockers AEROSMITH take part in this year's event but were reportedly unable to resolve logistical issues in the period between the band's North American tour and their Japanese tour. Pops conductor Lockhart told the Boston Globe that it "just didn't come together, but Steve Tyler and I were talking, and we want to make it happen at some point."
