Dropkick Murphys. Flogging Molly. Glen Matlock (Sex Pistols). On the same scene. It’s like a heroic dream that you do not think is true. But that’s it! Live, it will not be much speedier than these three – so we are extremely pleased to open the doors to Hovet in Stockholm – 6 February. We’ll see if the arena still stands there afterwards …

The tickets were released on Wednesday, October 11 at 10 am via LiveNation.se

After Dropkick Murphy’s massive album “11 Short Songs of Pain and Glory” (band’s ninth!), They are now embarking on an extensive tour. With a fan base that extends worldwide, Dropkick Murphys is a name everyone knows – and those who have seen the Massachusetts band live know that it’s among the most powerful people to experience. February 6th, the band will come to Hovet in Stockholm. As if that were not enough, Flogging Molly will be in support – as well as Glen Matlock (Sex Pistols)!

You have to look for a long time to find someone who has not heard “I’m Shipping Up To Boston”, “Rose Tattoo”, “The State of Massachusetts” or “Johnny, I Hardly Knew Ya”. Songs that have come to define a whole culture where the Irish meet the American – and a St. Patrick’s Day can not be done without green beer and Dropkick Murphys in the speakers.

With the latest album “Short Songs of Pain and Glory”, the band shows that one is still as current as ever – with its Celtic punk, touching lyrics and beautiful melodies. “The Lonesome Boatsman” is already a world hot and “4-15-13” about the terrorist attack in Boston leaves no one untouched.

As if Dropkick were not enough, we’ll enjoy some “Drunken Lullabies” with Flogging Molly – and a living legend in the form of Glen Matlock, original member of the iconic Sex Pistols.

See you in February?
