Boston Pops Performs.

This year, the Boston Pops will feature all New England performers for their 40th Fourth of July celebration at the Hatch Shell.

The two day concert on July 3 and 4 will feature Grammy-winner Susan Tedeschi, Howie Day, Ayla Brown, and Ellis Hall as well as the Tanglewood Festival Chorus and the Boston Pops Esplanade Orchestra led by Maestro Keith Lockhart.

While the celebration will keep traditions such as the real cannons and a ceremonial flag drop with confetti shot, for the first time in over 20 years, the celebration will not be televised nationally.

A local broadcast will still be available through WBZ NewsRadio 1030 starting at 6 p.m., the CBS-affiliate WBZ-TV at 7 p.m. and at www.cbsboston.com.

The event’s first official app has also been been released for download at the Apple Store and on Google Play under “Boston Pops Fireworks Spectacular.” The app includes an event schedule, vendor information and photo sharing capabilities with other app users.  read more

CBS Won’t Broadcast July 4 Concert Nationally

Fourth of July celebration at the Hatch Shell.

The upcoming annual 4th of July Boston Pops concert on the Charles River Esplanade will be the first in many years to not be broadcast nationally.

According to an AP report published in the Boston Herald, CBS declined to renew their contract with the producers of the show. The concert will continue to be broadcast locally on CBS affiliate WBZ-TV.

Executive producer David Mugar said TV ratings for the annual concert and fireworks display have dropped in recent years, according to the report.

In the past, the event has attracted national stars, including Jennifer Hudson last year. This year, the event will include more local artists like Susan Tedeschi, Ayla Brown and Howie Day. 

South End Patch will have all the details in the coming weeks for the upcoming July 4th celebration.
