The concert season is upon us, and with it is a big celebration at one of New England's most celebrated venues.

This place is as well-known for its monumental music events as it is for its championship football games.

Gillette Stadium is wading into epic territory, exuberant with excitement for the venue's 100th concert, making history at the arena.  With that is the staggering figure of over five million people who have attended concerts at the beloved stadium.

Which performer will have the honor of the 100th show on May 30, 2024?  It will be the band who played the inaugural concert at Gillette Stadium almost 22 years ago, The Rolling Stones, according to a press release from the New England Patriots.
