One of the hottest concerts to hit New England this summer will surely by the royal couple of hip-hop, Jay-Z and Beyonce who are set to hit the stage at Gillette Stadium July 2nd, 2014. The “Mr. and Mrs. Carter tour” has been announced for 20 stadiums in North America starting in June and spanning through August.
This show should sell out in minutes (less than 15). Other artists have sold out Gillette Stadium in less time and with a duo like these two, there’s no reason why they shouldn’t sell out the 60,000+ stadium in minutes. The possibility of a second show is certainly in consideration, however, July 4th is already slated for Yankee Stadium in New York. That’s quite a 4th of July celebration.
Because of the magnitude of this tour, it’s expected that certain markets will have additional concerts after the original shows sell out. As a matter or fact, the New York Yankees will be on a road trip for over a week, leaving Yankee stadium wide open after the July 4th show.
Details for the July 2nd concert at Gillette Stadium are still being worked out. It is most likely going to be an 8:00 start with gates opening at 7:00. Standard Gillette Stadium rules apply so make sure you read the policies regarding bags, umbrellas, signs and such. NFL Stadiums have heightened security and they are strict regarding enforcing rules. Gillette Stadium has several large parking lots and because of its location, public transportation is limited. The commuter train (T) runs to Gillette Stadium but usually for Patriots games only.
