Ballpark Rock?

By David Malitz

UPDATE: To answer the question "How many blogs does it take to confirm a concert?" the answer is: three. D.C. Wire is reporting that Billy Joel and Elton John will indeed be playing the first ever concert at Nationals Park this summer.

Over at Post Rock, J. Freedom du Lac speculates on the big announcement coming from Live Nation, the Washington Nationals and Mayor Fenty's office on Monday. A press conference is planned to announce the inaugural concert at the Nats new stadium, so it better be something big. J. Freedom's sleuthing has ended with him guessing that it will be old tour mates Billy Joel and Elton John. And he's got some details to back it up, mainly that the piano men are playing a couple of other shows at major league stadiums over the summer.

We'll find out the details Monday, if not sooner. But in the meantime, if you had to pick your perfect concert for a summer night at the ballpark, what would it be? I could go for a Pearl Jam/Foo Fighters show, myself.
