Justin Timberlake and Jay Z at Fenway Park

The city of Boston was abuzz last weekend as two powerhouse musicians came to town to put on a little show at historical Fenway Park.  Yes, ladies and gentlemen, furrylittlegnome was able to see “The Legends of Summer”  tour at one of America’s most famous ballparks.  In town for two shows, the tour supports Justin Timberlake’s third album, “The 20/20 Experience”, and Jay Z’s “Magna Carta…Holy Grail”.Fenway Park in Boston, MassachusettsFenway Park Food Prices Before taking our seats, souvenir stands and merch tables were everywhere.Merchandise table at Justin Timberlake and Jay Z show at Fenway Park

Should we be offended that they offered everyone, but us, a hit?

The lights dimmed, and the crowd roared.  The first song of the night was Jay Z’s “Holy Grail”.  The noise.  The singing along.   The dancing.   Furrylittlegnome had no idea that this rapper, married to Beyonce, had such a cult following and actually, pretty vile lyrics.

Jay Z and Justin Timberlake sounded great.  They performed together and solo.  Here are some photos – sorry, but furrylittlegnome is only fifty-eight inches tall…

    You are much braver than I. I tend to shy away from big crowds these days. I couldn’t tell you who today’s singers are if they wore name tags and held me by the hand. Same for actors too.

    A few years ago I declined to go for a drink with hubby and some friends while vacationing. The pool bar had just shut down, so they walked across the street. It was so loud that hubby ended up walking away with ear damage. *sigh* I am guilty …I am the one at parties that finds the music; turn table, radio even face up to the DJ and asks ’em to turn ‘it’ down. I really don’t like not being able to hear the person I’m sitting with at the same table. If the DJ is wearing protective ear plugs (and yes they do too!) they why is the music so darned loud?

    Glad you had fun.
