Huey Lewis & The News aren’t headlining (they should be), but opening up for Jimmy Buffett and the Coral Reefer Band. The Fenway stop is part of Buffett’s “Son Of A Son Of A Sailor” Tour 2018, celebrating 40 years of his LP of the same name. The record includes “Cheeseburger In Paradise,” “Livingston Saturday Night,” and “Cowboy in the Jungle.”
Buffett last played Fenway Park back in 2004, and his two performances 14 years ago birthed the live album, Live at Fenway Park. Tickets go on sale February 23 via RedSox.com/JimmyBuffett, and there’s an eight ticket limit per customer.
The addition of Buffett and Lewis adds to an increasingly busy concert calendar at Fenway this summer, and furthers the ballpark’s recent love affair with guitars. This year’s lineup features Zac Brown Band (June 14 and 15); Luke Bryan (July 5); Foo Fighters (July 21 and 22); Billy Joel (August 10); Journey, Deff Leppard, and Cheap Trick (August 11); and Pearl Jam (September 2 and 4).
But we’re here for Sports.
