FENWAY—Fenway Park made a list of the top venues nationwide in which to rock out! "Springsteen's rock show was the first concert at Fenway since 1973, when Stevie Wonder and Ray Charles performed at the Newport-New England Jazz Festival. Since then, the historic ballpark has welcomed monster acts from the Stones and the Police to Aerosmith and – yep – Springsteen again, who played the Standells' Boston classic 'Dirty Water' as an encore."
