Sox owner John Henry and his fiancee, Linda Pizzuti, are trying hard to keep the details of their wedding hush-hush, and who can blame them? But the big day is fast approaching, and people are talking. The precise location of Saturday's ceremony is top secret, but we do know that as many as 450 people will convene afterward at a lavish party in the outfield at friendly Fenway. As you might expect, Henry and his missus have enlisted an extraordinary wedding band: Maroon 5. That's right, Adam Levine and the lads will be performing.

You'll recall that Maroon 5 was the surprise musical guest at the BoSox bash in Colorado after the team's four-game sweep of the Rockies. That night, Levine channeled his inner Freddie Mercury, singing “We Are the Champions’’ for Big Papi, Josh Beckett, and the rest of the world-beaters. (Maroon 5 played for free at the Palm in Denver, but something tells us they're getting paid for Saturday's gig.) If the reception proves to be as entertaining as it sounds, the couple may need a day or two to recover before embarking on their honeymoon.
