Zac Brown Band add second Fenway Park concert

, Staff

As expected, Zac Brown Band have added a second concert at Fenway Park to their summer tour. Due to overwhelming demand after promptly selling out their June 28 performance, the country rockers will now perform at the home of the Boston Red Sox on Friday, June 27. Tickets for the newly added show, which range in price from $39.50 to $99.50, will go on sale Saturday, April 12 at 10 a.m. through Tickets will not be sold at the Fenway Park box office.

For the the Georgia-bred country rockers, the Fenway Park show represents their incredible growth. The band’s first show in town was at TT the Bear’s Place in Cambridge. From Harpers Ferry in Alston to the Agganis Arena and most recently the Comcast Center, they have progressed through bigger and bigger venues in town with each subsequent visit. With no new album to support, fans can expect Zac Brown Band to deliver a set packed with greatest hits and fan favorites from throughout the career.

In December, Zac Brown Band released an EP entitled The Grohl Sessions Vol. 1. Produced by Dave Grohl of Foo Fighters of Nirvana, it marks Zac Brown Band’s first collection of songs recorded at their Southern Ground Studios in Nashville. The idea to record together came after their collaborative performance of a brand new song called “Day for the Dead” at the 2012 CMA awards. The song, which is streaming below, is included on the EP, along with three other new tracks. Grohl drums on “Let It Rain”, while bassist Oteil Burbridge of the Allman Brothers Band fame performs on each of the tracks.

The band’s last full-length release was 2012′s Uncaged, which won a Grammy Award for Best Country Album. The band’s third major-label studio album was powered by hit singles “The Wind”, “Goodbye in Her Eyes”, “Jump Right In” and “Sweet Annie”.

A new full-length is reportedly on the horizon, though the band is focused on touring for most of this year, while frontman Zac Brown and his wife are expecting the birth of their fifth child this month.

The two Zac Brown Band performances at Fenway Park will follow Billy Joel’s sold out performance at the ballpark on June 26.
