Celtic punk paragons Dropkick Murphys have spent the last month or so on the road in support of their new album Going out in Style. That title seems to sum up how they look at the American leg of their tour, as they had a pretty special surprise in wait for fans who attended their second-to-last public date in the States at Boston’s House of Blues on March 18. Not only did they use the occasion to debut live their new cover of the 1900s Broadway tune “Peg O’ My Heart,” but they brought guest singer Bruce Springsteen along to recreate the album duet for lucky fans in attendance.
Here’s one we’ve been eagerly anticipating! It’s the Dropkick Murphys covering 1913 ballad “Peg o’ My Heart.” As if that wasn’t enough, they’re joined by a special guest: Bruce Springsteen. The cut comes from their Going Out in Style album (out Tuesday). Originally from the 1900s Broadway series Ziegfield Follies, this one sounds exactly like you’d want Dropkick and the Boss to sound. Raise those steins high and listen below.
