Is there a band in the world that has a more dedicated and just so damn happy bunch of fans than The Dropkick Murphys?
The band took to the stage at the Forum just after 9:30pm, and kicked off an incredible set that whipped the crowd into a frenzy.
Opening with Hang ‘Em High from their current release Going Out In Style, the Boston celtic-punks ebbed and flowed their way through a set that never missed a beat.
Take Em Down was a quieter moment, with the song dedicated by bassist and sometime vocalist Ken Casey to the ongoing Occupy protests.
Shipping Up To Boston deliverd an amazing end to the main set, before the crowd favourite and inevitable cause of stage invasion Kiss Me, I’m Shitfaced saw everyone from streakers, to stagedivers to grandmothers take to the stage.
Closing with the AC/DC classic TNT, not a single person inside the Forum left without a smile on their face. An incredible gig from an incredible band, made even better by incredible fans.
