A tightly packed sold out Sands Events Center in Bethlehem, PA greeted Dublin’s own Blood Or Whiskey as they opened the night and signaled the beginning of a month and a half long tour. Right from the start they brought high energy and had the sold out crowd buzzing.
Next up were Cali punkers The Interrupters, fresh off of their European tour with Green Day. Their perfect mix of punk rock and ska made it impossible to not spend the night dancing and singing along.
Closing out the night was who everyone was waiting for, The Dropkick Murphys. I wish I could share every detail about the show but it is something you should experience for yourself. What I can say is that whether you’re a new fan or someone who has been following the band throughout the years, you will hear everything you want and then some. The songs from the new album 11 Short Stories of Pain and Glory rocked, and so did fan favorites such as “Shipping off to Boston.”
You don’t want to miss this tour! So gather up your friends, prepare your vocal cords, and get ready for a night of belting out the lyrics to some really great music!
