The group recently announced dates for their annual St. Patrick’s Day tour in 2016 which also marks the band’s 20th anniversary.
Formed in Quincy, Massachusetts in 1996, this American Celtic punk band stepped into prominence and limelight through their local performances at the St. Patrick’s Day week shows. St. Patrick’s Day is a weekend performance of shows that takes place in and around Boston, which eventually became a yearly show, and a must see event for Dropkick Murphys and their fans.
Presently made of 6 members, 5 of whom were not there in the beginning, the pioneer members of the group are; Mike McColgan (lead vocalist,) Ken Casey (bassist/vocalist -1996 till present,) Rick Barton (guitarist,) and Jeff Erna (drummer.)
Some of the band’s hit songs include; Tessie, The State of Massachusetts, Going out in style, I’m Shipping Up to Boston etc. “I’m Shipping Up to Boston” is however their only platinum-selling single to date, and remains one of their best-known songs.
The Tour will commence on Feb. 18 at the House of Blues in Cleveland, and wraps up with the band’s traditional hometown St. Patrick’s Day week run.
Speaking about the 20th anniversary tour, Ken Casey, the band’s bassist/vocalist says; “It’s been an honor and a privilege to do this band for twenty years. Considering the band started on a bet, I’m pretty damn proud of what we’ve been able to accomplish. After twenty years, we are more grateful and enthusiastic than ever. The best is yet to come.”
The concert also features some exceptional guests including Tiger Army, who will be touring behind their first new album in over seven years, and the legendary Darkbuster.
