(CelebrityAccess News Service) — Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band will perform September 6 at Boston's Fenway Park, home of the Red Sox. This marks the first rock concert ever at the oldest major league baseball stadium still in use in the United States, which was built in 1912. In the 1970's, the Newport Jazz Festival presented some concerts at Fenway Park.
According to Springsteen's longtime manager Jon Landau, "Bruce and the E Street Band are thrilled to be playing the first rock concert ever at Fenway Park. We know what Fenway means to the people of Boston and are very appreciative to the Boston Red Sox for the opportunity to play at this great symbol of the city of Boston. It will be a night we all remember."
This date extends Springsteen's 2002-2003 tour. Since it began on August 7, 2002, Springsteen and the E Street Band have sold an astonishing near-3 million tickets worldwide, including 1.1 million on their current 24-date, 13-city European tour and 900,000 so far for this summer's US stadium tour. Additional stadium dates will be announced in July, with the tour expected to end on or around September 30. – edited by Jane Cohen and Bob Grossweiner
