Attention Massachusetts! You may be calling in sick on Tuesday August 22! Why? Guns N’ Roses are playing Fenway Park Monday August 21!

Here we go with another jam packed Guns N’ Roses Fenway everything you need, list! This is our helpful and comprehensive list of everything you need to ensure a fun and safe experience! So, let’s get started!

Surprise! It’s Carrie Underwood!

GnR fans are getting the surprise of their life as American Idol and country music star Carrie Underwood has been making surprise appearances at many of the shows. According to People.com:

Underwood joined Guns N’ Roses for three dates on the North American leg of the group’s 2023 Global Tour, as well as the three recent dates in Canada. She’s also set to open for the group on Aug. 26 in Nashville at GEODIS Park. 

It seems like Carrie and Guns lead singer Axl Rose are pals. He made a surprise visit at one her recent shows. Add to that she’s been known to perform the GnR cover, Welcome To The Jungle, at her shows.

Our spies have not informed us, yet about Carrie making an appearance at Fenway for GnR on August 21. Stay tuned.

    Well at Fenway, the gates open 90 minutes prior to events. On line it says that GnR starts playing at 9:30 pm. We can assume that opening act the Pretenders start an hour before.

     

  • Bag Policy

    THIS IS IMPORTANT! If your bag or pocket book is TOO BIG, they won’t let you in! We experienced this for Paul McCartney. They offer The Lock Up Truck, if you don’t want to trek back to your car. It’s a safe, truck where you can lock your items.

    Bags must be single-compartment and no larger than 12″x12″x6″. Backpacks, backpack-style purses, duffel bags, and other multi-compartment bags are NOT permitted. Exceptions will be made for diaper bags and bags containing essential medical equipment. To speed up the entry process, the Red Sox will continue to encourage the use of single-compartment clear bags for the 2023 season. Clear bags must also be no larger than 12″x12″x6″. Clear backpacks are not allowed.

    You will get searched. All bags will be subject to search.

    Fans who arrive to an entry gate for a game with a non-permitted bag will have the option of storing their bag for a fee with a third-party locker company. This locker truck is located on top of the Lansdowne Garage across from Gate E.

    Well, ya, but it’s not plentiful.

    Most folks train it or Uber it in, but here’s some ideas if you want to park it:

    Parking is extremely limited around Fenway Park. The Red Sox strongly encourage all fans to take public transportation to the game. A limited amount of handicap parking is available on Jersey Street between Van Ness Street and Boylston Street, near Gate D.

    Fans can purchase pre-paid parking via SpotHero. Visit redsox.com/parking for more information.

  • What If I Want To Take The Train?
