Tipping their scally caps to Fenway Park's 100th anniversary, Boston punks the Dropkick Murphys will take the stage at Symphony Hall on May 24, joining conductor Keith Lockhart and the Boston Pops for "Red Sox Night."
The group is slated to perform two of its Fenway standards, "Tessie" and "I'm Shipping Up to Boston," followed by the Pops' crescendo of Neil Diamond's "Sweet Caroline." During breaks from performances throughout the night, Fenway's organist Josh Kantor will play ballpark favorites.
Symphony Hall itself will mirror Fenway with popcorn vendors, hot dog stands, T-shirt cannons, and appearances from Red Sox personalities. Other famous faces onstage will include New England Patriots Hall of Famer Andre Tippett, journalist Mike Barnicle, and Sox mascot Wally. The performance is part of the Pops' "City of Champions" concert series, running May 23-25.
Tickets are $22-$92 and can be purchased at the Symphony Hall box office by calling 888-266-1200, or at www.bostonpops.org.
