Officials for the Boston Red Sox confirm to Billboard.biz that they are moving forward on organizing concerts Sept. 10 and 12 at Fenway Park. While they would not confirm the artist involved, it is widely speculated to be Jimmy Buffett & the Coral Reefer Band.

The historic baseball stadium hosted its first concert last year, when Bruce Springsteen & the E Street Band grossed $5.2 million from sellouts Sept. 6-7. Sox officials have always said bringing another show to Fenway was a possibility.

"On the record, I can tell you that we have applied to have a concert Sept. 10 and 12, and things are moving forward," says Larry Cancro, senior VP of Fenway Affairs for the Sox, owners of the beloved downtown stadium. He adds that surrounding business "did very well with the Springsteen show."

Community meetings to air concerns are planned, and a licensing hearing is scheduled for March 22. The only major issues are noise-related, Cancro says, "and beyond that, we don't foresee anything that could be a stumbling block."

Like the Springsteen show, the Buffett concert would be produced by Clear Channel Entertainment's Boston office.
