It will be a week-long celebration for Bruce Springsteen fans in Massachusetts this August as the legendary rocker and his E Street Band will rock three stadium shows in five days. Continuing the ballpark’s 100th anniversary, Springsteen has added a second show at Fenway Park for Wednesday, August 15.

As previously announced, he’ll play the home of the Red Sox on August 14 and Gillette Stadium in Foxboro on Saturday, August 18. Tickets for second date at Fenway will go on sale next Saturday, June 2 at 10 a.m. through eTix for $75 and $103. No tickets will be sold at the Fenway Park Box Office.

The series of shows are part Springsteen’s ongoing word tour in support of his new album, Wrecking Ball. Released in March, the New Jersey’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.

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.

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).
