    The Irish are coming! The Irish are coming! Two Boston institutions are teaming up this September.

    Dropkick Murphys will perform two landmark hometown shows on September 8th and 9th 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 said, "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 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. We are thrilled to be hosting them this coming September and look forward to also helping local 9/11 charities through this concert."
