Here are the concerts coming to Gillette Stadium in summer 2022

Kenny Chesney and other artists who had to reschedule their 2020 and 2021 concerts will return to Foxborough stadium starting in July.

With T.D. Garden already a longtime concert venue and Fenway Park getting into the game in recent years with its annual summer concert series, Gillette Stadium has traditionally been in fourth place among Boston’s Big 4 when it comes to concerts. That said, the 2022 Gillette Stadium concert series is shaping up to be a good one, with the home of the Patriots favoring quality over quantity at the moment.

Each of the four acts set to play Gillette this summer hail from different ends of the musical spectrum, and each attract a large built-in fanbase. In the case of Elton John, it will be the final time North American audiences will get to see the singer.


Here’s everything you need to know about the 2022 Gillette Stadium concert series.

Note: This article will be updated as more information is announced.

The Weeknd and Doja Cat

Ladies and gentlemen, The Weekend. The Canadian singer-songwriter will bring his melancholy R&B stylings to Gillette Stadium on Thursday, July 21, as part of his first-ever global tour. The tour will also be The Weeknd’s first concert series since the release of his smash album “After Hours,” which broke countless Billboard records following its March 2020 release.

Also joining The Weeknd at the home of the Patriots this summer is rapper/singer-songwriter Doja Cat, who has had her own Billboard success with the likes of “Say So” and “Kiss Me More.”

Tickets for The Weekend’s Gillette Stadium show go on sale to the general public on Thursday, March 10 through The Weeknd’s website. The GA on-sale date will be preceded by a number of pre-sales: Earliest access will be given to fans who previously had tickets to the cancelled After Hours tour, starting March 4. After that comes a pre-sale for Verizon customers who belong to the Verizon Up loyalty program starting March 7 at 10 a.m., a Spotify Fans First presale for top streamers of The Weeknd starting March 8, and a Live Nation presale starting March 8. (Thursday, July 21 at 7:30 p.m.; Prices TBA; Tickets available starting March 10 here)

Elton John

Elton John will say “Goodbye Yellow Brick Road” for the final time in America next year. Sir Elton’s Farewell Yellow Brick Road Tour will be his last in North America and Europe, and includes a Thursday, July 28, 2022, concert at Gillette Stadium.


The Rocket Man last performed in Boston at TD Garden on Nov. 15, 2019.

“The shows that I announce today will be my final tour dates ever in North America and Europe,” John said in a press release. “I’m going to go out in the biggest possible way, performing at my very best, with the most spectacular production I’ve ever had, playing in places that have meant so much to me throughout my career.”

Currently, tickets are only available for American Express presale members, and a general admission on-sale date is yet to be announced. (Thursday, July 28 at 8 p.m.; $120-2,000; tickets available here)

Kenny Chesney

After a prolonged absence, Kenny Chesney is returning to Gillette Stadium for a pair of 2022 concerts.

The country star announced that he will perform at the home of the New England Patriots on Friday, August 26, 2022, and Saturday, August 27, 2022, after being forced to delay planned summer shows in 2020 and 2021 due to the pandemic.

In previous years, Gillette Stadium has typically served as the final stop for Chesney’s tours, and 2022 will be no different. Chesney’s Here and Now stadium tour, which will feature fellow country stars Dan + Shay, Old Dominion, and Carly Pearce, kicks off April 23 at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa Bay and will conclude at Gillette with the August 26 and 27 shows. (Friday, Aug. 26 and Saturday, Aug. 27 at 5 p.m.; $66-270; tickets available here)


German industrial metal group Rammstein will be rocking hard at Gillette Stadium on September 9 as part of the group’s first-ever North American stadium tour. The “Du Hast” band will kick off the tour on August 21 in Montreal and finish up with a trio of performances in Mexico City. (Friday, Sept. 9 at 7 p.m.; $59.50-149.50; tickets available here)
