Chaka Khan joins the Boston Pops for a July 4th Party on the Esplanade

Tomorrow evening the Boston Pops annual Fireworks Spectacular will take place with headliner, Chaka Khan. The tradition which started in 1929 has become a right of passage and when I first moved back to Boston, I spent more than a few July 4th holidays on the Esplanade to watch the celebrations in-person. As the years have passed, I’ve moved from the Esplanade to watching the show from friends’ apartments in the Back Bay and more recently from home, which is where I think we will watch this year’s show.

If you too would like to watch this from your home, The Boston Pops Fireworks Spectacular will be on Bloomberg TV, and locally the show will be simulcast on Boston’s WHDH-TV. Additionally, you can listen to the concert in the Greater Boston area on 106.1 FM / 1330 AM / 1450 AM / 92.9-HD2, and nationally, the concert can be found on SiriusXM channel 119, online at, and via mobile on the Bloomberg and iHeartRadio apps.

  1. Thank You for letting us know about Boston’s magnificent July 4 celebration. Years ago I watched it on PBS in the last years of Authur Fiedler conducting. I’ve always wanted to see it in person. Maybe one day I will.
