Aerosmith have announced plans to return to their old home base of Boston on September 18 to play a special concert at Fenway Park in celebration of the band’s 50th anniversary. The Rock & Roll Hall of Famers will be joined by opening act Extreme.
News of the Boston show comes after a whirlwind weekend for Aerosmith that saw the band saluted as MusiCares Person of the Year on Friday, and also hit the Grammy stage Sunday for a performance with hip-hop legends Run-DMC.
Tickets for the Fenway Park concert go on sale to the general public this Friday, January 31, at 10 a.m. ET at LiveNation.com. Pre-sales tickets will be available for members of the group’s Aero Force One club and Citi card holders starting Tuesday, January 28, at 10 a.m.; for Red Sox season ticket holders beginning Wednesday, January 29, at 10 a.m.; and at LiveNation.com starting Thursday, January 30, at 10 a.m.
The Boston show is Aerosmith’s first U.S. concert of 2020 outside of the Las Vegas residency performances that the band has lined up.
Some drama ensued at the MusiCares Person of the Year gala as Aerosmith drummer Joey Kramer awkwardly joined his band mates on the podium for their acceptance speech, although he didn’t take part in the group’s performance. As recently reported, Kramer sued the other Aerosmith members because he claims they unfairly haven’t allowed him to rejoin them at their concerts since he experienced health issues that sidelined him last year.
The MusiCares event featured performances by star-studded list of guest artists and by Aerosmith themselves, albeit with a fill-in drummer.
