As previously revealed, Dropkick Murphys are about to embark on their Summer 2012 tour with over 20 European shows including the Download Festival on June 10th.
A deluxe edition of the group’s critically acclaimed Going Out In Style album is now available. The package includes a companion release–Live From Fenway–recorded on September 8 and 9 in front of 20,000 Dropkick Murphys fans at the band’s sold out headlining dates at Boston’s legendary ballpark. The package also includes a download for the entire concert video.
Now in their 15th year, Dropkick Murphys have amassed a Scorsese soundtrack smash, a US top 10 album, a lifetime membership to every Boston sports team and a sound owing as much to Springsteen and The Pogues as to the Clash.
The Dropkick Murphys are: Al Barr (lead vocals), Tim Brennan (guitars, accordion, whistle, vocals), Ken Casey (lead vocals, bass guitar), Jeff DaRosa (banjo, bouzouki, mandolin, harmonica, vocals), Matt Kelly (drums, vocals), James Lynch (guitar, vocals), Scruffy Wallace (bagpipes) and can be seen on all of the following dates.
