Fenway Park will be rocking again this summer.

Live Nation and the Red Sox confirmed that "Uptown Girl" piano man Billy Joel will take the Fenway stage on June 26, after rumors swirled on Wednesday of a possible performance.

Tickets go on sale on Saturday, Feb. 8 at 10 a.m. and range from $49.50 to $139.50. There isn't a listing for the Boston show on Ticketmaster's website yet, but we're guessing it will be there soon.

This is proving to be a stadium-filled year for Joel, who began a residency at Madison Square Garden on Monday night. When he isn't in New York, he'll play summer shows at Chicago's Wrigley Field (July 18), Washington D.C.'s Nationals Park (July 26), and Philadelphia's Citizens Bank Park (Aug. 2).

Past Fenway performers have included Justin Timberlake and Jay Z (2013), Bruce Springsteen & the E Street Band (2012), and Aerosmith with J. Geils Band (2010).
