After another year of COVID-related postponements, the 2022 Fenway Concert Series will return to Lansdowne Street starting June 7, 2022.
Several musicians who were scheduled to play the 2021 Fenway Concert Series and the 2020 Fenway Concert Series will give it another go, with Lady Gaga, Aerosmith, Zac Brown Band, and Def Leppard all hoping for no more COVID-19 delays. The Red Hot Chili Peppers, meanwhile, were slated to play Boston Calling 2020, but will now play a September date at Fenway instead.
New to the Fenway concert series is Perto Rican rapper/singer-songwriter Bad Bunny, who will make his Fenway debut August 18 alongside DJ/producer Alesso.
Perhaps the crown jewel of the 2022 lineup is Paul McCartney, with the former Beatle opening the concert series for the summer with a pair of shows on June 7-8.
Fans who want to purchase tickets for a 2022 Fenway concert can do so through the Red Sox website. For those fans who previously bought tickets to a postponed Fenway concert, those tickets will be valid for the corresponding show this summer.
Here is a complete list of artists set to play 2022 Fenway Park concerts so far.
Note: This article will be updated as more information is announced.
Sir Paul McCartney is getting back to Fenway Park not once, but twice in June. After tickets for McCartney’s June 7 Fenway concert sold out during their first week on sale, the former Beatle announced he would perform a second concert on June 8 as well as part of his Got Back Tour. McCartney’s June 7 and 8 concerts will mark his fifth and sixth performances at the home of the Red Sox, following stops in 2016, 2013, and 2009. (Tuesday, June 7 and Wednesday, June 8 at 6:30 p.m.; $100-320; tickets available here)
Looking for a little bit of chicken (fried) and cold beer on a Friday night in Boston this summer? Zac Brown Band has just the ticket.

Zac Brown Band has sold out Fenway Park a record 11 times, so you can expect tickets to sell fast when they go on sale January 20 at 10 a.m. (Friday, July 18 at 7 p.m.; tickets available here)
Mötley Crüe and Def Leppard first announced they would be coming to Fenway Park way back in 2019, along with fellow 80s rockers Poison and Joan Jett & The Blackhearts.
