Springsteen to play Fenway Park in August

BOSTON -- The Boss is coming back to Fenway Park.

Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band will celebrate the ballpark's 100th anniversary with a concert on Aug. 14, pending city approval. The group made history on Sept. 6, 2003, when they headlined the first rock concert at Fenway Park.

On Friday, Springsteen and his band announced they will open the second leg of their United States "Wrecking Ball" World Tour in Boston.

Tickets will be available at LiveNation.com, Etix.com, the Orpheum Theatre Box Office or by calling 800-514-3849.

The "Wrecking Ball" World Tour heads to Europe between May 13 and July 31 before returning to America. Springsteen's latest album was released in March and debuted at No. 1 in the U.S and 15 other countries.

Roger Waters is also performing at Fenway Park this summer, with a concert on July 1.

While Springsteen started the summer concert trend in 2003, the ballpark has hosted several big-name acts in each summer since. Aerosmith, Dave Matthews Band, Jimmy Buffet, Paul McCartney and The Rolling Stones have all performed at Fenway Park.
