Named after an obscure professional wrestler, Dropkick Murphys gradually became a hugely popular
live draw thanks to their rowdy blend of traditional Celtic music, American hardcore and British
punk. Formed in Quincy, Massachusetts in 1996, the original line-up of frontman Mike McColgan,
bassist Ken Casey, guitarist Rick Barton and drummer Matt Kelly first began playing in the basement
of a friend’s barbershop, and achieved their big break when The Mighty Mighty Bosstones invited
them to appear on their Let’s Face It tour. After signing to Hellcat Records, the group released
Dropkick Murphys tickets for their own headlining trek and teamed up with Rancid’s Lars
Frederiksen for 1998 debut album, Do Or Die. McColgan left suddenly in the midst of their UK tour
later that year, and was eventually replaced by The Bruisers’ Al Barr in time for 1999’s The Gang’s All
Here. After performing for over a year to fans with Dropkick Murphys tickets, the group collaborated
with The Business on 2000’s Mob Mentality, and bolstered their sound with the recruitment of a
bagpipe player, a mandolinist and an additional guitarist. Featuring guest appearances from The
Pogues’ Shane MacGowan and Cock Sparrer’s Colin McFaull, 2001’s Sing Loud, Sing Proud! was
followed by the sale of Dropkick Murphys tickets for a weekend of St Patrick’s Day shows that would
become an annual event. In 2003, the group released fourth LP, Blackout, and Dropkick Murphys
tickets for an accompanying tour which also included several dates on the Vans Warped Tour. The
band then scored their first US Top 50 entry with 2005’s The Warrior’s Code, while the demand for
Dropkick Murphys tickets then increased further when its single, “I’m Shipping Up To Boston,” was
used on The Departed soundtrack. After issuing 2007’s The Meanest of Times through their own
Born & Bred label, the group recorded Live on Lansdowne, Boston MA, in front of thousands of fans
with Dropkick Murphys tickets, and achieved their highest peak on the Billboard 200 with 2011’s
concept album, Going Out In Style. Fans then snapped up Dropkick Murphys tickets for a joint tour
with former vocalist Mike McColgan’s band, Street Dogs, before the group achieved a second
consecutive US Top 10 LP with 2013’s Signed & Sealed In Blood, and performed to more than 10,000
fans with Dropkick Murphys tickets at their biggest ever show at Boston’s TD Garden.
