Dropkick Murphys To Rock Fenway Park

.
(AMM) Dropkick Murphys will rock 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. Special guests The Mighty Mighty Bosstones will perform at both shows, with additional opening acts to be announced in the coming weeks.

Dropkick Murphys bassist/vocalist/founder Ken Casey comments, "We feel honored and privileged to share a connection and friendship with the Boston Red Sox. Our involvement in the 2004 and 2007 championship seasons are some of the greatest highlights of our career and our lives. But to be invited by the Sox to join the select few who have performed full concerts at the park is truly a dream come true!"

Dropkick Murphys are currently touring in support of their Going Out In Style CD (Born & Bred Records/ILG), 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 DKM will be joined by such artists as Reverend Horton Heat, Murder City Devils, Supersuckers, Swingin' Utters, Royal Crown Revue, John Doe and more. The current North American dates will wrap August 6 and the band will head overseas for European festival dates from August 12-21.
