This summer should be the busiest one ever for Fenway Park. In addition to a revamped and revitalized Red Sox team that should compete for the American League East title (and play meaningful games well into September), there are more big-ticket concerts than ever before. From Foo Fighters to Billy Joel to to James Taylor to an unprecedented three-night run from Zac Brown Band, the lights at Fenway will rarely be turned off between Opening Day and the first signs of autumn.
The Weezer frontman and Harvard University grad (Class of ’06) tweeted out Friday night that playing Fenway with his band “would be the best day OF MY LIFE,” adding, to no one in particular, “you guys should make it happen.”
Of course Weezer isn’t big enough on their own to fill the stadium. But maybe they could play one of those bleacher gigs like Jack White last year and the Mighty Mighty Bosstones and Dropkick Murphys in years past. Or perhaps they can hook up on one of the Foo Fighters’ two-nightstand in July, but those shows already have stacked lineups (Mission of Burma, Royal Blood and the aforementioned Dropkicks and Bosstones).
