Billy Joel will perform at Boston’s historic Fenway Park on Thursday, June 26, according to a press release from Live Nation Entertainment.
Joel has never performed at Fenway Park, and his June 26 concert will mark his first solo headlining concert in Boston in five years. Tickets for the concert will go on sale Saturday, Feb. 8, at 10 a.m. ET, and can be purchased at RedSox.com/BillyJoel.
“Billy Joel’s upcoming concert at Fenway Park adds to the celebrated list of music legends that have performed at the ballpark since 2003,” Red Sox executive vice president and COO Sam Kennedy said, according to the press release. “We look forward to hosting the music icon at Fenway in June for what we know will be a memorable performance.”
Joel, a six-time Grammy award winner, has sold more than 150 million albums globally. The singer/songwriter/composer is the sixth-best-selling recording artist of all time and the third-best-selling solo artist, earning him induction into both the Songwriter’s Hall of Fame and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
