Billy Joel to play at Fenway on June 26

Billy Joel will play Fenway Park on June 26. It will be the first time he headlines a show in Boston in five years.

American Express Card members can purchase tickets starting on Monday at 10 a.m. Tickets for the general public go on sale starting Feb. 8 at 10 a.m. Go to www.redsox.com/billyjoel.

Fenway also could host the Zac Brown Band this summer.

A few other notes:

• Chad Finn reports that Jenny Dell will not be on NESN Red Sox broadcasts this season.

• City of Palms Park in Fort Myers, the former home of the Red Sox, is looking for a new major league team. But it won’t be the Nationals based on this report.

The Red Sox and Twins would welcome a third team in the Fort to cut down on travel around the state.
