Legendary punk bands Rancid and Dropkick Murphys bring the Boston To Berkeley Tour to Pittsburgh

Dropkick Murphys and Rancid’s From Boston to Berkeley tour made it’s stop in Pittsburgh, PA Wednesday night at Stage AE. The two legendary punk band played the sold out venue and it was packed full of liberty spikes and kilts as fans anxiously awaited the show to start.

Fans of all ages rushed to get the best spots in the general admission venue and the barricade was lined with fans that ranged from 11 year old kids to fans that grew up on the music. The show kicked off with an acoustic set by Jake Burns who is the front man for Stiff Little Fingers. His quick set was followed by The Bouncing Souls who fired the crowd up for Rancid to take the stage.

Once Rancid hit the stage the energy level took an obvious turn as the circle pits started and the bottles started flying. The pit was hammered by the crowd surfers as Rancid belted out their most popular songs which were accompanied by some from their new album Trouble Maker. Dropkick Murphys wrapped up the night with an insane set that had lead singer Al Barr climbing into the pit so he could sing with the help of the fans.

The show ended with a joint encore with Rancid and Dropkick Murphys covering the likes of The Crickets, Cock Sparrer, Johnny Cash, and The Ramones. Overall the show was incredible and if you are on the tour’s upcoming list of cities, this is one you will not want to miss. The chance to see these incredible acts on one stage is too good to pass up.
