Rock legends Aerosmith perform at Fenway Park with The J. Geils Band August 14th
THIS WILL BE THE ROCK EVENT OF THE SUMMER TICKETS ON SALE APRIL 17th
Aerosmith, America’s Greatest Rock and Roll band, will be performing in Boston’s famed Fenway Park on Saturday August 14th with The J. Geils Band in what will surely be the ultimate must see show of the summer. Aerosmith and The J. Geils Band, two of the world’s hardest rocking bands who call Boston their home, will play together at Fenway Park. This promises to be one of the most important shows in Rock and Roll history.
The announcement of the “DOUBLE PLAY” event was made this evening by Boston home boys Steven Tyler and Peter Wolf at the top of the 4th inning of the Red Sox/Yankees game when they visited Red Sox announcers Don Orsini and Jerry Remy to make the surprise announcement to a roaring Boston crowd. This is the first time both bands have ever played together.
“Sox fans look out! You’ve got a grand slam with Aerosmith and J. Geils and we’re going to rock it over the Green Monster,” said Steven Tyler.
Tyler most recently appeared at Fenway Park for the opening Red Sox/Yankees game on Sunday, April 4th when he performed God Bless America from the field.
Aerosmith‘s Joe Perry who is currently on tour in the UK with the Joe Perry Project commented from Newcastle, England, “When I heard that Aerosmith would be playing Fenway Park this summer, naturally I freaked out. Then I heard it was going to be with The J. Geils Band. I knew that this is an event that I, like all hard core Bostonians, have been waiting for for 40 years. There have been other shows at Fenway Park, but this one is going to leave them all behind because it’s going to rock so hard the Green Monster will crack and they will have to keep the Citgo sign together with duct tape and glue. The biggest problem for me is that I can’t be on stage and in the audience at the same time. I’ll definitely be in the audience watching J. Geils performance.”
Aerosmith, the biggest, most enduring and thrilling band in rock history will make a spectacular return to South America for the first time since 2007 beginning in Caracas, Venezuela on May 17th with the COCKED, LOCKED, READY TO ROCK TOUR! The band will then go to Europe for 11 more knock out shows.
Aerosmith will be celebrating their 40th anniversary later this year. For more than 30 years Aerosmith has defined American Rock and Roll. They’ve earned countless awards (including 4 Grammy Awards, 8 American Music Awards, 6 Billboard Awards, and 12 MTV Awards), performed electrifying sold-out concerts around the world, and have a fan-base numbering in the millions worldwide.
