Fenway Park is arguably one of the most iconic parks in the United States. As the oldest Major League Baseball stadium and home to the Red Sox, it has seen its fair share of home runs, World Series wins, and scoreboard-shattering plays. What many don’t know is that the park has a life of its own outside of being the stomping ground for America’s favorite pastime.
Live in Concert
Fenway Park periodically holds live concerts, like this summer’s Plainridge Park Casino Fenway Concert Series. In the first weeks of the series, Phishheads will unite to see the psychedelic band, Phish, perform on July 5th and 6th. Fans of Teenage Wasteland will get to sing along to the iconic hit during The Who’s live performance on September 13th. The following day, legendary musician Billy Joel will light up the stage with some classic anthems.

History buffs will appreciate taking the one-hour walking tour of Fenway Park, which dives deep into the stories behind the venue’s past. Feel the nostalgia as you imagine the crowds roaring in the distance to the sights of legends like Williams, Yaz, Fisk, and Rice.
