Sublime with Rome plot return to Boston

, Staff

Just a few months after making their Boston debut at the House of Blues, Sublime with Rome have revealed plans to return to the Hub later this summer. The band, comprised of original Sublime members bassist Eric Wilson and drummer Bud Gaugh with new frontman Rome Ramirez, will play the Bank of America Pavilion on Thursday, August 19. Tickets for the show, which range in price from $27.50 to $37.50, are now on sale through Live Nation. The Dirty Heads will open the show.

The band’s formation comes fourteen years after the death of lead singer/guitarist Bradley Nowell. The 90’s ska-punk favorites are now fronted by Ramirez, a 21-year-old northern California native who was introduced to Gaugh and Wilson in 2008. He first performed with the two last fall, as part of the Smokeout Festival in California. Wilson and Gaugh originally planned on working with Rome under the band’s original name. However, a Los Angeles court denied the two the right to use the moniker because it was officially trademarked by Nowell, who expressed that he did not want it used without his inclusion.
