The Celtic rockers played several gigs in US cities with large Irish American populations such as New York and Boston throughout the first two weeks of March.

They played their final (scheduled) gig of the US leg of their tour at Boston’s House of Blues on Sunday and flew to Dublin on Monday for two gigs in one day on St Patrick’s Day.

As they were waiting for the flight they set up their equipment and performed some of their most famous songs – including Shipping out to Boston, Rose Tattoo and Dirty Glass.

They quickly drew a crowd and fans were delighted to see the band. These fan shot videos have already.
