Official satisfaction: Stones to rock Fenway

BOSTON -- According to a Red Sox team official, The Rolling Stones will be playing at Fenway Park this summer.

The concert by the venerable rock band has been strongly rumored for several weeks. They will hit the stage at Fenway on Sunday, August 21st and Tuesday, August 23rd.

The Fenway shows will be the launching point for the Stones' latest world tour. The band also chose Boston as the first stop on its "Forty Licks" tour in 2002, opening at the FleetCenter on that occassion.

This will mark the third straight year that Fenway Park has hosted a major concert. Bruce Springsteen performed in 2003 and last year, Jimmy Buffet brought his "parrotheads" to the 90-year-old stadium.

Tickets for The Rolling Stones will go on sale Saturday through Ticketmaster.
