James Taylor will play Fenway Park next summer, according to sources close to the ballpark. Specifics haven’t been made public yet, but we’re hearing that the concert will be Aug. 6, 2015. The Boston native and Berkshires celeb will follow in the footsteps of past Fenway headliners Bruce Springsteen, Dave Matthews, the Rolling Stones, and, more recently, Tom Petty. Of course, Taylor has technically performed at Fenway before. He’s sung the anthem for the Red Sox and headlined the Hot Stove Cool Music summer concert in 2006.
