Boston Pops Fireworks Spectacular
Grammy Award-winning pop icon Neil Diamond will perform on the Boston Pops Fireworks Spectacular, an entertainment special to be broadcast live from the Charles River Esplanade in Boston, Saturday, July 4 (10:00-11:00 PM, live ET/delayed PT) on the CBS Television Network.
Craig Ferguson (CBS's "The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson"), in his third consecutive year as host of the special, will travel directly from a week-long USO tour overseas with U.S. troops to Boston for the annual 4th of July event.
Diamond will perform some of his classic hits with The Boston Pops Esplanade Orchestra under the direction of conductor Keith Lockhart.
The Boston Pops Fireworks Spectacular, in its 36th year, is the orchestra's annual free outdoor Fourth of July concert. The final 21 minutes of the broadcast, featuring the spectacular fireworks display, will be presented commercial free by Liberty Mutual Group.
