The Irish are coming!
Dropkick Murphys have announced the first annual Shamrock-N-Roll Festival, set for this Fall. The touring festival will feature Dropkick Murphys, Street Dogs, Chuck Ragan, The Mahones, The Parkington Sisters and local bands, as well as additional yet-to-be-announced national acts performing on two alternating stages. Raise that mug o' Guinness.
What makes this festival different than so many other rote rock fests that are being put on? Well, for starters, a boxing demonstration and signing with renowned boxer "Irish" Micky Ward of The Fighter fame will also be featured at the event.
The Shamrock-N-Roll Festival will kick off with a pair of sold-out, hometown shows --September 8th and 9th-- at Boston's Fenway Park and will make stops in the following cities: Bangor, ME, Altamont, NY, Pittsburgh, PA. Columbus, OH, Portsmouth, VA, Rochester, NY and Philadelphia, PA.
The full lineup will be announced soon.
