The Dropkick Murphys give Boston Logan travelers a special performance

Date: March 17, 2015 | Category:

The punk band The Dropkick Murphys were headed to Ireland from Logan International Airport on March 16, 2015, when they gave a surprise performance at Gate E4.

The musical group,  famous for their hits "I'm Shipping Up to Boston" and "The State of Massachusetts," played in front of a crowded terminal of green-clad travelers on an impromptu stage.

"I'm Shipping Off to Dublin" the band sang instead of the usual lyrics, in celebration of St. Patrick's Day and their impending trip to Ireland. The Murphys will play two shows at Vicar Street in Dublin on March 17th before heading on to the U.K., and then back to the states for more "Celtic Punk Invasion Tour" performances in May.

The airport has recently warned that Boston Logan parking will be severely limited during March due to an increase in travel for spring break. Visitors are advised to arrive an hour or so early to allow themselves time to get to the airport and potentially wait for parking spots to open up. 

Travelers heading to the airport via plane will have no trouble accessing Thrifty parking, as it is predetermined and reserved regardless of other traffic.
