Even with the Red Sox enjoying the off-season, the hits keep coming for Fenway Park.

Live Nation announced Monday that The Who will play a concert at Fenway on Friday, Sept. 13 as part of their Moving On! Tour, which will take them to cities from May 7 to Oct. 23. The tour is especially noteworthy because the band will be releasing its first album of new songs in 13 years later this year.

The Who is the third big act that has announced a Fenway date in the last seven days. Jam band Phish will play two shows at Fenway on July 5 and 6, and singer-songwriter Billy Joel will return to Fenway for a sixth time on Sept. 14, when he will be inducted into the ballpark’s Music Hall of Fame.
