The livestream, which is scheduled for July 22nd, will be hosted by Will Dailey.
“Will Dailey has been a close friend of mine for years and when he approached us with the idea to host an event that would celebrate music and Fenway Park, all while raising funds for charity, we were completely on board,” said Red Sox President & CEO Sam Kennedy. “Of course, this event would not be possible without our partners at Live Nation who have been instrumental in securing the talented artists who have graced the stage at Fenway Park since 2003. Once again, they have helped us deliver on an exceptional program, this time virtual, that pays tribute to music and our great ballpark.”
“We are excited to partner with our friends at the Red Sox to help bring the Fenway Sessions to life,” adde Don Law, President of Live Nation New England. “Concerts at Fenway Park are an experience like no other and we are thrilled to help celebrate a genuine New England summer tradition all while supporting the Red Sox Foundation and Crew Nation.”
