The multi-star benefit in the Boston suburb marks the first time a Farm Aid concert has been staged in New England. The show will feature Farm Aid board members Willie Nelson, Neil Young, Dave Matthews and Mellencamp. Additional performers will be announced later. "New England was built on the strength of independent family farmers," John Mellencamp says. "We can honor that independent spirit by joining Farm Aid to grow the movement that is changing the way all of America eats." Tickets go on sale July 28 through Ticketmaster.
