Fenway Sessions Livestream: Foo Fighters, Jimmy Buffett, New Kids On The Block & More
Fenway Sessions, a livestream benefitting the Red Sox Fund and Live Nation’s Crew Nation COVID-19 relief fund on July 22, will feature an archival performance from the Foo Fighters. Jimmy Buffett, Jefferson Starship and New Kids on the Block. The livestream will be hosted by Boston's own singer/songwriter Will Dailey and will take place a couple of days before the Red Sox's first game against the Baltimore Orioles on Friday, July 24.
Concerts at Fenway Park, including from Lady Gaga, Maroon 5 and New Kids on the Block, have been rescheduled due to COVID-19, but thanks to Dailey, Red Sox President & CEO Sam Kennedy told Vanyaland, the virtual concert will be a great way to celebrate the season with music.
"Will Dailey has been a close friend of mine for years and when he approached us with the idea to host an event that would celebrate music and Fenway Park, all while raising funds for charity, we were completely on board," Kennedy said. "Of course, this event would not be possible without our partners at Live Nation who have been instrumental in securing the talented artists who have graced the stage at Fenway Park since 2003. Once again, they have helped us deliver on an exceptional program, this time virtual, that pays tribute to music and our great ballpark."
Watch the livestream on Wednesday, July 22, at 7:05 p.m. EST/ 4 p.m. EST on Live Nation New England's Facebook.
