WATCH: Videos From the Dropkick Murphy’s & Mighty Mighty Bosstones Playing in Portland on 7/11/08
They performed their song "The Chosen Few" live for the very first time on the CYY Pation on the afternoon of the show!
I remember the day/night well. It was sunny and hot! We had both bands come by the station on the afternoon of the show. The Murphys performed on the patio and Dicky from the Bosstones came by and hung out on the air. I think he played guest DJ for a bit?
The Dropkick Murphys and Mighty Mighty Bosttones then played an even hotter Cross Insurance Arena (then Cumberland County Civic Center) on this day in 2008. It was originally supposed to go down at Hadlock Field, the home of our Portland Seadogs. The Murphys said they moved it because they were having a hard time getting the show set up in a way they thought the fans would be happy with. Let's face it...the air would have been fresher but that didn't take away any fun had by fans that night. Now if we could just get those bands to take a quick trip up to Portland a little more often!
