Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band have added a second Massachusetts show to their summer tour. Just before rocking Foxboro’s Gillette Stadium, the legendary band will perform at Boston’s Fenway Park. Springsteen will return to America’s “Most Beloved Ballpark” for a performance on Tuesday, August 14. Tickets for the show, which is pending approval by the city, will go on sale next Saturday, May 19 at 10 a.m. through eTix. Ticket prices have yet to be announced.

**Update: Tickets will be priced at $75 and $103. No tickets will be sold at the Fenway Park Box Office.

The show, along with the band’s performance at Gillette Stadium on Saturday, August 14, is part of their “Wrecking Ball” world tour. Springsteen and the E Street Band made history on September 6, 2003 when they headlined the first ever rock concert at Fenway Park as part of their tour in support of 2002’s The Rising.

Springsteen continues to tour in support of his brand new album, Wrecking Ball. Released in March, the New Jersey rocker’s 17th studio effort and follow-up to 2009′s Working on a Dream, debuted at #1 in 16 different countries. It marked his tenth #1 album in the United States, tying him with Elvis Presley for third-most #1 albums of all-time. Wrecking Ball, which was produced by Ron Aniello with Springsteen and executive producer Jon Landau, features lead single “We Take Care of Our Own”. The album also features a special guest appearance from Tom Morello of Rage Against The Machine and Audioslave.

The ongoing tour, which stopped in Boston earlier this year for night at the TD Garden, is Springsteen and the E Street Band’s first since the death of saxophonist Clarence Clemons, who passed away in June 2011. The current E Street Band lineup includes Roy Bittan (piano, synthesizer), Nils Lofgren (guitar, vocals), Patti Scialfa (guitar, vocals), Garry Tallent (bass guitar), Stevie Van Zandt (guitar, vocals) and Max Weinberg (drums) with Soozie Tyrell (violin, guitar, vocals) and Charlie Giordano (keyboards).
