Fenway Park in Boston is among my favorite ballparks in the country. It’s the oldest ballpark, which appeals to me for its classic charm. Although it has undergone some renovations during its 106-year life, it has retained its original character. Its small size (total capacity is under 40,000, making it the second smallest baseball stadium in the U.S.) also makes it a nice place for outdoor summer concerts.
The 2018 schedule so far has a lineup that suits many musical preferences. Here’s the current list:
- Zac Brown Band (country), Thursday-Friday, June 14-15, 6:30 p.m.
- Luke Bryan (country), Friday, July 5, time to be announced
- Foo Fighters (rock), Saturday-Sunday, July 21-22, 5:30 p.m.
- Billy Joel (classic rock), Friday, August 10, 7:30 p.m.
- Journey and Def Leppard (rock), Saturday, August 11, 5:30 p.m.
- Pearl Jam (grunge), Sunday, September 2, and Tuesday, September 4, time to be announced
Tickets are on sale now for all shows, except Luke Bryan and Pearl Jam. Sale dates for Luke Bryan tickets have not been announced. Pearl Jam tickets go on sale to the public on Thursday, February 21.
Fenway Park is located at 4 Yawkey Way in downtown Boston. Although parking is available for a fee, this area gets very congested, so public transit is the best option. Fenway Park is also bicycle friendly.
