You are the only one I am aware of.

Quote :
Michael Sweet performed lead vocals, background vocals, and guitar work for Boston. His first official show with the band was June 6, 2008 in Thunder Bay, Ontario. Sweet handled lead vocals on roughly half of the set list, including Boston staples "More Than a Feeling," "Amanda," "Peace of Mind" and "Longtime." "Peace of Mind" was re-recorded by Stryper and released via the iTunes Store on June 23, 2008. Reviews of his performance have been positive. It is unknown whether he will record new material with the band as Brad Delp's replacement.

Yes you are the only one. Razz

Not only did he do a tribute concert with the band (they had several singers), but like Dale said he (and one other lead singer) did an entire tour with Boston (not sure how many dates). Tom Sholz (lead guitar/songwriter/producer for Boston) was so enamored with Michael's performance at the tribute concert that he put together a tour and invited Michael as one of the lead vocals. (he shared lead vocal duties with a completely unknown Boston fan that sound very similar to the the departed Brad Delp). There was even talk of Michael getting with Tom Scholz and writing/recording music for a new Boston album together.

I saw Boston perform on this tour, and Michael Sweet was definitely the "ROCK STAR" of the band - lots of movement (which none of the other musicians in Boston have ever managed very well), plenty of audience engagement, and a great attitude throughout the show. His vocal performances were a bit different from Brad Delp's, which I initially found distracting, but as the set went on I warmed up to his approach. The other guy was pretty good vocally (kind of a Brad Delp sound-a-like), but not much personality or stage presence.

I would love to see Boston do a series of albums with that lineup. The studio would give the sound-a-like dude a chance to do his thing without having to worry about connecting with an actual audience, and Michael Sweet would doubtlessly bring a fresh approach to what they do vocally. Here' s hoping ...

Peace,
Rob What a Face

Guilty/Forgiven, yep, you are the only one.
That's why some concerts were postphoned because Michael was a member of Boston. Very Happy

If I'm not mistaken they even delayed the release of "Murder By Pride" because of Sweet touring with Boston.

True, but also a part of the European tour of Stryper.
