“We marvel at the fact that this will be the fifth consecutive year Billy Joel will be performing at Fenway Park, but we are not surprised,” says Red Sox President and CEO Sam Kennedy in the press release. “It is a testament to the enduring popularity of his great music and consummate showmanship, and we couldn’t be happier that the Piano Man is returning here to deliver more summer magic.”
Joel joins a guitar-heavy slate at Fenway’s musical series this summer, as Zac Brown Band (June 14 and 15) and Foo Fighters (July 21 and 22) has already announced their own gigs.
And we should be getting those Pearl Jam dates locked in any day now. While we wait, get into some “Piano Man.” Featured image by Anthony Correia.
