Steven Tyler and Peter Wolf are at the Sox game tonight and announced – finally – that Aerosmith and the J. Geils Band will indeed play at Fenway Park this summer. (The pair arrived at the ballpark in a limo after a dinner at Abe & Louie’s.) Season ticket holders will get first dibs on tickets, which will range in price from $55 to $175. (For the rest of you, tickets go on sale April 17 at LiveNation.com.) The show is Aug. 14, but we’re told a second concert could be added Aug. 13 if ticket sales are brisk. Forget all the drama of the past year, Tyler told us that Aerosmith is up to its old tricks. “We’re walking, talking, and taking solid foods,” he said. “I had a little accident when I fell off the stage at Sturgis, but I’m feeling good and I’m ready to kick some (expletive.)”
During Wednesday’s Red Sox-Yankees game, the Red Sox announced that Aerosmith and the J. Geils Band will perform at Fenway Park on Sunday, August 14 — the first time ever both bands will perform on stage together. The concert will begin at 6 p.m. with gates opening at 5 p.m.
Steven Tyler from Aerosmith and Peter Wolf representing the J. Geils Band appeared in the booth alongside Jerry Remy and Don Orsillo in the bottom of the fourth to announce the event.
Wolf noted that he recently released a solo album titled Midnight Souvenirs, but he will appear at Fenway alongside his J. Geils bandmates. “We’re going to have a good time,” the lead vocalist said.
