Hoping to see Aerosmith at Fenway Park this summer? Dream on.

The legendary rock group announced that its 50th anniversary concert at Fenway Park has been rescheduled for a second time. The concert date has moved from Tuesday, Sept. 14, 2021, to Thursday, Sept. 8, 2022.

Previously, the band planned to celebrate its 50th anniversary at Fenway on Sept. 18, 2020, but the show was delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The band joined a growing list of bands originally set to take part in the annual Fenway Park Concert Series that have had their shows canceled or rescheduled, including Mötley Crüe, Def Leppard, Poison, Joan Jett, James Taylor, Brandi Carlile, Shawn Colvin, and Dead & Company.
