Fenway Sound Check

Any ideas on when they will sound check before the shows? I would figure we should be able to hear if we are close to the park...Anybody catch this at Wrigley and how was it (sound, timeframe, etc.)

    Wrigley was around 7or 8 night before if I remember correctly. Been outside for Fenway before. It's pretty loud

    This was in the email given to those that won the 10club ticket contest.

    From the Ten Club Suite, you and your guest might also be able to check out the band’s soundcheck! *Soundcheck may begin between 3:00pm - 5:00pm, so we recommend showing up early

    At Wrigley 13 it was as stated above between like 7-8pm. I thought it sounded amazing and it was awesome....they played for about 50 minutes or so...9 songs maybe. I'm going up later today in hopes of catching this

    Crossing fingers someone is able to record some of the sound check. Either inside or outside Fenway Park.

    I saw someone post they were doing the 1pm Fenway tour and saw James Taylor do his soundcheck....

    However between 3 and 5 seems logical to me also!
    Thank you fellow 10 clubber for saving my ass....again!!!

    That was me. We're staying at the Verb Hotel in a room facing Fenway and heard the sound check starting a few minutes before 1. We ran over to the stadium and got on the 1:00 tour (we like doing stadium tours anyway). We were told that we couldn't take pictures during sound check as we were videotaping some of it. Not to worry -- sound check went on until around 4:30, and I was taping it from my room at the hotel! You will be able to hear sound check anywhere around Fenway. Very loud!
    By the way, the sound last night inside the stadium at the concert was incredible. Even Jackson Brown (the opener) said how awesome the sound was for any concert venue.

    If I knew how to post my videotape I would post my Jackson Brown sound check taken from my room to show you how good it sounded.

    I wish I could, but I'm an old person who can't even figure out how to post a video here!!! Plus, I haven't picked up my tickets yet, so I'm not sure where in the stadium we'll be. We were in the first row of B2 on the field last night, and it was awesome!

    Our tour guide knew a bunch of us were there to watch the sound check, so he let us linger in the seats watching a bit. And the tour is interesting. Enjoy!

  • So what do you guys think? I was at PJ20 and the soundcheck was the night before. I am assuming that based on that and Wrigley it would be tonight and not hours before the actual show to work out any rust?

    Wait, Jackson Browne just played Fenway too? So we are definitely hearing "I am a Patriot" tomorrow. Nice.

    No songs yet. Just a lot of checking equipment right now.

    Well ?!?!?
  • I just walked by and didn't seem like much was happening. I guess I missed it?
  • Catwoman1Catwoman1 Posts: 465
    It was just 30 second at most snippets. More like roadies checking the equipment. I did hear about 30 seconds of the bass line for Satan's Bed. Oh well. I was so excited for a real full-fledged sound check.

    My apologies if you walked out of your way because of me.
