Pops to perform during opener

The Red Sox won’t be the only Boston icons to take the field on Opening Day.

Maestro Keith Lockhart and members of the Boston Pops will perform “God Bless America” and “Take Me Out To The Ballgame” during the seventh-inning stretch of Monday’s season opener at Fenway Park.

Both pieces are featured on the Boston Pops Orchestra’s new recording, The Red Sox Album, which will be released the same day, April 6.

Three-time Grammy Award winner Seal (a.k.a. Mr. Heidi Klum) will sing the National Anthem.

The Red Sox are requesting that all fans at Fenway Park on Opening Day take their seats by 1:20 p.m. to enjoy the pregame ceremonies before the scheduled 2:05 p.m. start time.
