Dropkicking Fenway Park

BOSTON (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — Dropkick Murphys will perform two hometown shows on September 8 and 9 at Boston’s Fenway Park, home of the Red Sox, pending city approval.

A portion of the proceeds from the two Dropkick Murphys at Fenway with Special Guests The Mighty Mighty Bosstones shows will benefit the Massachusetts 9/11 Fund, which helps support families of victims of 9/11 throughout the state, as well as the band’s charity The Claddagh Fund.

In addition to The Mighty Mighty Bosstones who will perform at both shows, additional opening acts will be announced in the coming weeks.

“Dropkick Murphys have permeated Boston and New England sports culture, particularly here at Fenway Park where ‘I’m Shipping Up to Boston’ has long signaled [pitcher] Jonathan Papelbon’s trip to the mound,” said Red Sox Executive Vice President/COO Sam Kennedy. “The band has debuted songs here, been part of our rallies and shared in our joy during the 2007 World Series parade."

With these shows, Dropkick Murphys join the ranks of musical greats Paul McCartney, Bruce Springsteen, Neil Diamond, Jimmy Buffett, Dave Matthews Band, Phish, The Rolling Stones, The Police, J. Geils Band, Aerosmith and NKOTBSB who have all performed at Fenway Park.

Dropkick Murphys are currently touring in support of their Going Out In Style CD, which debuted at #6 on the Billboard 200, the group’s highest chart debut to date.

Their latest trek launched June 19 in Winnipeg, MB and includes a headlining slot at the annual 4th of July weekend Hootenanny in Irvine, CA, where the band will be joined by such artists as Reverend Horton Heat, Murder City Devils, Supersuckers, Swingin’ Utters, Royal Crown Revue, and John Doe among others.

The current North American dates will wrap August 6 and the band will head overseas for European festival dates from August 12-21.
