Aerosmith Reschedule 50th Anniversary Hometown Show at Fenway Park for 2021
UPDATE: Aerosmith's 50th anniversary show has been rescheduled for Sept. 14 of 2021. Read the band's full statement on the matter toward the bottom of the page.
The 50th anniversary celebration of veteran rock band Aerosmith will continue late into 2020, as the band has just announced a Sept. 18 show in their hometown of Boston, Mass. at the legendary Fenway Park.
Aerosmith formed in Boston in 1970 when the bands the different members were a part of combined into one. They moved in together in an apartment at 1325 Commonwealth Avenue — which is now famously known as the "Aerosmith House." The group began gradually garnering success as a local act, and the rest is history.
The rockers began celebrating their five-decade feat as a group last year with their Deuces Are Wild residency in Las Vegas, which consisted of several clusters of shows at the Park Theater in Park MGM throughout the year. The residency picks up again this year at the end of January and continues through June before they set out to Europe for a tour with Rival Sons.
Aerosmith's legacy was honored this past weekend when they were named the MusiCares Person of the Year. Additionally, the weekend ended with the group performing at the 2020 Grammys with Run-D.M.C.
Tickets for Aerosmith's Fenway Park concert, which features special guest Extreme, go on sale Friday, Jan. 31 at 10AM ET. See all of their 2020 dates here.
Commenting on the postponement, Aerosmith stated,
Out of an abundance of love and caution our 50th Anniversary Fenway show is being rescheduled to 14th September 2021," the band said in a statement. "It's better to look ahead and prepare than to look back and regret, for the safety of our families, for our crews, for the fans and for the Blue Army. All tickets will be honored for the new date so hold onto yours! Or if you are unable to make it, you'll be able to request a refund. Ticket holders will be emailed with all details. Until then, stay safe and stay healthy. Big love from the Bad Boys of Boston... AEROSMITH.
