It’s going to be weird not going to Fenway Park this summer. I was very much looking forward to seeing some of the biggest names play there. You know. Def Leppard. Motley Crue. Joan Jett. Guns N’ Roses.
But now that’s not going to happen. And it bothers me a whole lot more that I’m missing out on all of these acts than missing seeing the Red Sox play in their home ballpark.
Look I love the Sox. I have for more than 40 years. I really am missing seeing them on TV and listening to the games on the radio. But the summer of 2020 for me was going to be filled with great concerts. At multiple locations. But this is the summer that the music has died.
I was certainly hoping to go to a game or two at Fenway the summer. I actually own a partial Sox season ticket package that we share with Sports Chowdah sponsors and readers. I am sorry that most likely none of us will get to see baseball at Fenway in 2020.
But its not devastating to me. To be honest I don’t think the Red Sox were going to be very good this year and probably weren’t going to the playoffs.
Rocking out with Axl Rose, Vince Neil, Joan Jett and Gene Simmons would’ve made up for having no Chris Sale, Mookie Betts or even David Price. But none of that is going to happen. And that’s putting one mega sour note on my summer.
