Festival in LuxembourgBig brotherhood of punk at Rockhal
ESCH-BELVAL – On Tuesday evening, Dropkick Murphys returned to Rockhal with their Celtic punk. On the menu, songs and hospitality.
From Los Angeles to Boston, same fight. Among the three bands opening for Dropkick Murphys on Tuesday night was Pennywise. The legend of the Californian scene, the band with Jim Lindberg sent out their punk sound and muscles generously, exchanging with the public… and even the photographers.
“The boys are back”! As soon as the Dropkick Murphys arrived on stage, 3,700 fans sang along to the American anthem. Pipes led, harmonica sounded, banjo took us back to the pioneer days, drums pounded, and a band from Massachusetts unleashed the horses, giving their mix an explosion of punk, rock, folk and Celtic music. Ken Casey, dressed in black as his entourage, could count on every one of them to back him up on vocals. For among these descendants of Ireland, proud representatives of the working class, brotherhood remains important.
New featured album
Dropkick Murphys last came to the Grand Duchy in 2017. It’s not far enough for fans to forget their Celtic punk songs. “Middle Finger”, “Queen of Suffolk County”, “Skinhead on the MBTA”, in an overpowered acoustic version, or “Rose Tattoo” always had their impact.
The latest album from the Americans, “This Machine Still Kills Fascists”, along with their dedication, was also featured, with “Cadillac, Cadillac”.
