Foo Fighters and Jefferson Starship are among the artists that will be featured on The Fenway Sessions, a livestream event showcasing performances from the famed Boston ballpark that premieres today, July 22, at 7:05 p.m. ET via the Live Nation New England Facebook page.
Other artists featured on the livestream include Jimmy Buffett and New Kids on the Block.
Donations accepted during the stream will benefit the Red Sox Foundation and Live Nation’s Crew Nation initiative.
Foo Fighters had planned to launch a U.S. tour this past spring to celebrate the 25th anniversary of their debut album, but the run was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. In lieu of the in-person dates, the Foos have uploaded a number of archival concerts online, including their 2008 Wembley Stadium show.
Earlier this month, Jefferson Starship released its first new song in 12 years, “It’s About Time,” which was co-written by the group’s former singer Grace Slick. The track will be part of a new seven-song EP titled Mother of the Sun that will hit stores on August 21.
