Dropkick Murphys to Perform Opening Night at Call of Duty XP
Activision has tapped "green-collar" punk revelers Dropkick Murphys to perform opening night at 8pm, Sept. 2nd, at the first ever Call of Duty XP.
The critically-acclaimed Dropkick Murphys--known for their complex distillation of classic punk rock, Celtic folk and American rock 'n' roll--will deliver a knockout live performance. The two-day Call of Duty fan event features the global premiere of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 multiplayer, a $1 Million Tournament presented by Xbox 360 and other landmark experiences including these live musical performances. Call of Duty XP will take place September 2nd and 3rd, 2011, in Los Angeles, California.
"With an unbeatable lineup of real-world and in-game experiences, Call of Duty XP was already poised to be an historic event for fans of the franchise," said Eric Hirshberg, Chief Executive Officer of Activision Publishing. "The addition of Dropkick Murphys just makes XP that much more memorable. Few bands fit the bill better—we're thrilled to have them performing on opening day."
