In a full-circle moment, The Rolling Stones concert on May 30 will be the 100th in venue history, 21 years after the legendary rock band became the first to ever perform at the venue on Sept. 5, 2002. Gillette Stadium’s Centennial Summer will feature five different artists performing a total of nine shows from May through August.

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. – When The Rolling Stones take the stage at Gillette Stadium one month from today, it will mark a historic milestone for the home of the New England Patriots and Revolution. The May 30 show, which will kick off the 2024 Gillette Stadium Concert Series presented by Dunkin’, will also be the 100th concert in venue history. Fittingly, The Rolling Stones also headlined Gillette Stadium’s inaugural concert, which took place more than 21 years ago on Sept. 5, 2002.

This two-decade climb to the century mark has seen Gillette Stadium feature more than 30 different headlining acts, including holding the distinction of being the first NFL stadium shows for global superstars Taylor Swift and Ed Sheeran. Of those 30-plus headlining acts, Kenny Chesney (will perform his venue-record 22nd, 23rd and 24th shows in 2024), Swift (13 shows), Bruce Springsteen and The E Street Band (seven shows) and Sheeran (seven total performances, five of those as headliner) lead the way as the artists who have performed at the venue the most. Beyoncé, Billy Joel, Bon Jovi, Coldplay, Elton John, Jay-Z and U2 are also among the musical icons who have brought their chart-topping talent to the home of the Patriots and Revolution throughout the years. More than five million total fans have attended these 99 legendary shows to date, traveling to Gillette Stadium to enjoy music of every genre performed by the world’s biggest stars. 

As time has gone on, Gillette Stadium has continued to cement itself as a concert destination, growing from hosting a few shows each summer (averaged three shows/year from 2002-2012) to approaching double-digit concerts on an annual basis (averaged seven shows/year from 2013-2023, including nine shows in 2022 and a record 12 shows in 2023). Another summer full of memories and music will get underway with The Rolling Stones in exactly one month’s time. The legendary rock band, who will return to Foxborough for the first time since 2019 in their fourth overall time playing at the venue, will kick off the Centennial Summer slate that features five different artists performing a total of nine shows from May through August. Following the Stones’ May 30 performance, Zach Bryan will make his Gillette Stadium debut when The Quittin Time Tour rolls into Gillette Stadium for a pair of shows on June 26 and July 17. Tickets are available for both shows at

Next up, a concert lineup that already features the return of Gillette Stadium’s inaugural performers will also see the return of another legendary rock band that has their own place in venue history. Metallica, who played the second-ever concert at the home of the Patriots and Revolution, will head back to Foxborough for the first time since 2017 on Aug. 2 and Aug. 4. The group will take the stage as part of their M72 World Tour, delivering a “No Repeat Weekend” that features two totally different setlists with two different bands opening the show each night. Tickets are available for both nights at

The 2024 Gillette Stadium Concert Series presented by Dunkin’ comes to a close with an action-packed end of August. First up, P!NK will make her venue debut on Aug. 21, followed by an unprecedented three-night stint from eight-time Entertainer of the Year Kenny Chesney on Aug. 23, 24 & 25. Chesney, who has sold more than one million tickets at Gillette Stadium, will return to the birthplace of No Shoes Nation for his venue-record 22nd, 23rd, and 24th overall performances to close out the Centennial Summer on a high note.
