Haute Spots Boston: Fenway Concert Series

There is no better place in Boston to watch a concert than at Fenway Park. Each summer, America’s most beloved ballpark hosts some of the hautest names in entertainment. The field is transformed to a live entertainment venue with seats directly on the field in the turf section, in the stands and on the roof deck.

From Billy Joel, Paul McCartney and James Taylor to Aerosmith, The Dropkick Murphys and The Rolling Stones, some of the best seats can be found at the on the Right Field Roof Deck. The Red Sox Foundation hosts these all-inclusive parties each concert, which include complimentary food and beverages with a portion of each ticket benefiting the charitable programs of the Red Sox Foundation. We may be doing those in the know a disservice by divulging this haute secret, but the Foundation seats are definitely one of best places to watch a concert at Fenway Park..If you aren’t lucky enough to score the Foundation ticket, the turf seats are the next best thing and the closest ones to the stage for an up and close view of the performers.

Last weekend, Zac Brown Band played two sold-out shows to a total of 72,819 people at Fenway Park as a part of their 2016 ‘BLACK OUT THE SUN’ tour. The three-time Grammy-winning band broke three new records at Fenway Park this weekend which included the most tickets sold at a single concert, the most tickets sold over two nights of concerts by the same artist and the first band to sell-out seven consecutive shows over three years. During their time here, they performed a special “no-repeat” weekend with a different set each night (no song repeated over the course of the two nights). Friday night’s show included some of their best music, including “Castaway” and “Beautiful Drug,” and a few unexpected impressive covers like “The Devil Went Down to Georgia” and Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody” before ending with their beloved “Chicken Fried” grand finale that made the park go wild.

It’s no wonder Zac Brown thinks Fenway Park is the best place to play.
