Dropkick Murphys reveal more details for St. Pats’ shows

, Staff

The Dropkick Murphys are gearing up for their annual hometown St. Patrick’s Day festivities. The band are as busy as ever with seven shows scheduled over six consecutive days at the House of Blues on Lansdowne Street (five of the shows are sold out).

Last week, the group revealed their full lineup of support acts for each of the seven Boston shows. The roster boats a strong mix of local favorites include The Have Nots, The Old Brigrade and Bryan McPherson with national acts Larry & His Flask, Swingin Utters and Sick Of It All. The full schedule of shows – including estimated set times – is available below.

Additionally, the Dropkick Murphys plan on making McGreevy’s their official band headquarters for the week. The bar, which is owned by vocalist/bassist Ken Casey, will host an meet and greet session on Friday from 4 to 6:30 p.m. There will be a $10 cover for the event, which will benefit the band’s recently launched charitable organization, The Claddagh Fund. If you can’t make it over to McGreevy’s, check out The Claddagh Fund’s  official website for rare DKM merchandise, such as autographed European tour posters. McGreevy’s will host pre and post-show parties for all of the shows and band members are expected to stop in at anytime throughout the week. Check out McGreevy’s official website for more details on all the events.

Of course, the band will also release their highly anticipated new live album and DVD, Live On Lansdowne, Boston MA, on March 16. The album is comprised of 20 fan favorites recorded at the band’s seven shows at Boston’s House of Blues last March. Live On Lansdowne will be the band’s second live release recorded during their annual string of St. Patrick’s Day week gigs in Boston, following 2002’s Live On St. Patrick’s Day From Boston, MA. The new live album features an entirely different track listing from the previous release and a guest appearance by The Mighty Mighty Bosstones on “I’m Shipping Up To Boston”. Live on Lansdowne will be available in various formats: CD, double disc digipack with CD and HD DVD, as well as a double gatefold vinyl with bonus CD insert.
