NEW CONCERT ALERT: The iconic New England band is shipping up to Bangor this fall.

The 2023 Maine Savings Amphitheater Summer Concert Series continues to add even more great live music to a lineup that is shaping up to be one of the best ever.

The legendary American Celtic punk band formed in Quincy, Massachusetts, known and loved by all of us as Dropkick Murphys, is making its first appearance in Bangor, since 2017.

Their twelfth album, Okemah Rising, was released on May 12, so you can be sure you will hear a few from that when they come to town.

They are also bringing along the ska punk band, The Interrupters, and roots rock artist, Jess Ahern, for a full night of music on the Bangor Waterfront.

The big day is Wednesday, September 27, at the Maine Savings Amphitheater. Pre-sale tickets go up for grabs on Thursday, May 18th, at 10 am, and then on sale to the general public, this coming Friday, May 19th, at 10 am.

The band's 2005 album “The Warrior's Code”, included the smash hit "I'm Shipping Up to Boston." The song really caught on when it was included in the film "The Departed", and went on to become a platinum-selling single. It took on a second life at many Boston sporting events, usually at the beginning of the game, to get the crowd hyped up, or during a time out to rally everyone.

Before tickets go on sale, you can win them right here. Just enter your info below, and you're in the mix.
