DANA WHITE BRINGS “PAIN” TO BOSTON ON ST. PATRICK’S DAY

Las Vegas, NV — On March 17th, UFC® President Dana White is headed back East to his Southie stomping grounds to throw the biggest St. Patrick’s Day party in Boston, featuring the first performance by House of Pain in over a decade. White and House of Pain will be taking over the Roxy for this invitation-only celebration, but today White announced he will open up a limited number of tickets to UFC® Fight Club™ members, and for local radio station giveaways.
 
“Obviously I love the city of Boston, I just filmed my new show ‘Black Souls’ there, so I’m going to throw a St. Patrick’s Day party with House of Pain at the Roxy,” said White. “House of Pain was one of my favorite bands when I lived there, and they are going to perform again for the first time in over a decade — I’m opening up a few hundred tickets to UFC Fight Club members and for local radio stations, so UFC fans in Boston can come hang with us on March 17th.”
 
The band “House of Pain” featuring lead singer Everlast, will rock the party, performing together for the first time since their breakup in 1996. White, who just wrapped production on a new television drama “Black Souls,” filmed entirely in Boston, will serve as host.

"I’m excited about this party, Dana is one of the few people who could get me to do something again with House of Pain," said Everlast. "We’re like the Santa Claus of St. Paddy’s Day, and Boston is our North Pole, so we’re coming home to deliver the goods — we’re gonna play a lot of the old House of Pain stuff, some Everlast, and some other surprises. It’s been about 13 years since House of Pain played together, so this is gonna be a lot of fun for all of us."
 
UFC® Fight Club™ members should sign into UFC.com to register for the chance to receive free tickets to the “White and House of Pain” party.

We’re in no way suggesting that you should spend $75 to join the UFC Fight Club just so you can have a slim chance of getting a pass to this jammy-jam, but if you’re already a member and you live near Boston, your St. Patrick’s Day might be even more memorable than normal. If you are able to score a ticket, let us know; and don’t forget to punch someone in the face during "Shamrocks and Shenanigans."

Just wanted to correct bean and friction. They tore down the old AXIS building and renovated AVALON to build the new HOUSE OF BLUES. The ROXY is still the same place. But yes unfortunatley it is as gay as can be on saturdays!

House of Pain is the Shizit! Yes, he is in a new rap supergroup 'La Coka Nostra" google them to see their videos for "That's Coke and "I'm an American" they are awesome. Everlast parties harder than most people the rest of the people need to catch up! LOL! As far as the Boston thing, they get mad respect from Beantown because of the Irish members of the House (Everlast, Danny Boy) E was born in NY, and moved to LA, but has an all around appeal. Their album should be dropping any moment, and anything that is out so far are just teasers and there will be all new songs on it. House of Pain are in talks of releasing a new album as well. Their first 3 are classic. This show will be awesome!!

If they are the Santa Claus of St. Patrick's Day and Boston is their North Pole, doesn't that mean that they would leave Boston and spend all day dropping off pints of Smithwick's to boys and girls around the world before returning to Southie to share a Hot Toddy with Mrs. Claus?

Is that the group with old dirty basturd?
McGraw- March 2, 2009 at 8:22 am
House of Pain is a fake Irsih/Boston based group... they came from LA and found a niche in exploiting the bean town area. But f*ck it Jump around is a good time when your drunk. Dana is true to Southie though... just make sure Whitey doesn't come after his money.

The roxy is still technically there, its now just a bigger spot. They did it all over.

... its also a gay club on Saturday nights, so maybe we'll get a 2 for 1 WarMachine sighting.
