Celtic Punk Rock Legends Dropkick Murphys and Flogging Molly to Co-Headline KettleHouse Amphitheater

Celebrating over 20 years of mayhem, Celtic punk mainstays Dropkick Murphys and Flogging Molly have added a tour stop at KettleHouse Amphitheater on Sunday, September 23, 2018.

Dropkick and Flogging have already received widespread praise from fans and the media during this historic run of shows. Brooklyn Vegan called the tour, “…one hell of a double bill of Celtic punk… [June 17, 2018].” Elsewhere, Omaha World-Herald called the two bands “…collectively the pinnacle of a genre that mixes up punk rock and Irish folk, raging guitars and tin whistle, head-banging beats and bagpipes [June 11, 2018].”

Dropkick Murphy’s vocalist, bassist, and founder Ken Casey said “It’s something the two bands and the fans have wanted for a long time. We are so excited for the next leg of the tour out West!!!!!” Flogging Molly vocalist and founder Dave King stated “If there’s an Irish punk rock heaven, then this is it! Touring with the Dropkick Murphys has been a highlight of our touring lives, what a great band, and a great bunch of lads, can’t wait to bring this celebration to the West Coast! So, get ready and grab your partner because we’re all just dancers on the ‘Devils Dance Floor’!”
