Due to overwhelming demand, the J. Geils Band have added a second homecoming show at Boston’s Bank of America Pavilion to their summer tour plans. After quickly selling out the Bank of America Pavilion for a show on Saturday, August 6, the band will now play a second concert on Sunday, August 7. Tickets for the show, which range in price from $30.50 to $95.50, will go on sale Saturday at 10 a.m. via Live Nation. The Chris Robinson Brotherhood will open the show, which will also serve as the WZLX Anniversary Concert.

The J. Geils Band, currently featuring original members Peter Wolf (lead vocals), Richard “Magic Dick” Salwitz (harmonica), Seth Justman (keyboards), Danny Klein (bass) and Jay Geils (guitar), reunited for their first performance together in over a decade to celebrate the grand opening of the House of Blues on Lansdowne Street in February of 2009. They went on to play handful of shows in 2009 including a New Year’s Eve gig at the Mohegan Sun Arena in Connecticut.

Of course, last August, the band rocked Fenway Park as part of a co-headliner with fellow Boston legends Aerosmith. Much like these recent reunions, fans can expect to hear a set of greatest hits including “Centerfold”, “Give It to Me”, “Love Stinks” and “Ain’t Nothin’ But a House Party”.
