Pops, Beach Boys warm up ahead of show on Boston Esplanade

Posted: Updated:
BOSTON (WHDH) -  It’s tradition on Boston, the Pops perform on the Esplanade and then fireworks, but this year the tradition was bumped up a day.

“We've been watching the weather for the past 72 hours and we think today is really our best chance of getting the show in,” DCR Commissioner Jack Murray said.

Police are everywhere as the city gets ramped up to celebrate the nation's birthday.

At least a thousand police officers will be on hand watching for trouble but generally this is a fun, family crowd.

“We expect that today will be a really good day,” mass. State Police Lt. Dan Richard said.

The headliner along with the pops is the beach boys. Both groups did sound checks Thursday afternoon.

Original beach boy mike love says he loves the idea of being on stage with an orchestra.

“Several hundred thousand people this is like the feather in the cap, this is really great to be with the Boston Pops,” he said.
