The St. Patrick's Day vibes got started 12 days early in Birmingham, Alabama as Dropkick Murphys performed in front of a packed house at Iron City. Even though it was a Monday night, the fans in Birmingham rocked out with the Dropkick Murphys like it was the height of a holiday weekend. It was loud, rowdy, energetic, and a stellar concert experience for those in attendance.
This was my third time photographing a Dropkick Murphys concert, and it was just as exciting as the first two I covered. The band just has so much energy on stage, and, more importantly, a connection with their audience that can't be understated. That is why the band sells out shows and continues to have successful tours each year. They have fans that are die hard supporters and appreciate the high energy concerts. Speaking of connection with the audience, the lead image for this post is probably the sharpest "audience connection" shot I've ever taken so I do appreciate the band for that aspect as well.
If you get a chance to check out Dropkick Murphys on their St. Patrick's Day tour, don't let it pass you by. The group really does put on a killer concert experience that is a lot of fun to be a part of and witness.
