The Boston Red Sox are back in town! Starting off with a three game series against the Detroit Tigers going from July 30-August 1. Then they finish out the week with a four game series against the Minnesota Twins from August 2-5. Coming straight from a three game series against long time rivals the New York Yankees, let’s hope the Sox bring back a couple wins as souvenirs.

Coldplay finish out their two night run as the TD Garden, which is sure to be just as exciting as Sunday nights show was. Fans can expect to get a light up wristband at the show. Also be sure to check out our blog post about this tour in support of their new album, Mylo Xyloto, right here.
