In addition to The Beach Boys, performers include Megan Hilty of the musical "Wicked," the cast of "The Phantom of the Opera," and the Boston Children's Chorus, according to Boston 4 Productions, the event organizer.
And it wouldn't be a July 4 in Boston without the Boston Pops. The orchestra will play Tchaikovsky's 1812 Overture complete with cannon fire.
Additionally, WBZ will live-stream the concert on its website - the first time Boston's celebration of America's birthday will be made available live online.
