Dropkick Murphys treated their hometown fans to an unexpected collaboration Thursday night at the "Boston Strong" benefit concert.
The Celtic rockers joked that this is probably the only time anyone will ever see a joint performance from themselves and New Kids on the Block, but they reveled in the moment with a rousing rendition of their hit "Shipping up to Boston." Dropkick Murphys also performed three songs from their recent Boston charity EP "Rose Tattoo."
Meanwhile, the "Evening of Support and Celebration" also included a headlining performance from Aerosmith. After the Bad Boys from Boston played their hits, they ended the show by leading an all-star rendition of "Dirty Water" with some of the concert's other performers, including New Kids on the Block, the J. Geils Band, Jimmy Buffett, and more.
All of the proceeds from the "Boston Strong" show are going to the One Fund Boston, a charity set up by Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick and Boston Mayor Thomas Menino to help the victims of last month's deadly Boston Marathon bombings.
