Dropkick Murphys will be performing their popular song "Shipping Up To Boston" before the third annual NHL Winter Classic on January 1. The game between the Boston Bruins and Philadelphia Flyers will take place at Fenway Park in Boston. The band will be using the opportunity to promote their new charity organization, the Claddagh Fund. A recent charity skate on the Fenway Park ice raised over $50,000 for the fund.

The band has an extensive tour lined up after the new year, and a live CD/DVD tentatively titled Live on Landsdowne slated for a March 16, 2010 release.
