Dropkick West
 
The Dropkick Murphys will be performing at the first ever Call of Duty XP Convention with Kanye West as the headliner.

jwicklun 08/27/11 08:59 PM

Weird combo.

ghelms88 08/27/11 09:02 PM

Awesome stuff, but 150 bucks?

runningohfive 08/27/11 09:20 PM

Sounds very cool, I do enjoy me some Kanye West, Dropkick Murphys and Call Of Duty.

kidinthebushes 08/27/11 09:27 PM

What's is...the worst idea ever?

TheRealJohnOC 08/27/11 09:40 PM

Yeah, not worth $150 for 2 days dedicated to 1 video game.

The Minn 08/27/11 09:51 PM

I would much rather prefer Dragon Force and Tenacious D ;)

cubs223425 08/27/11 10:07 PM

Wow, that's pretty much the worst thing I've heard in my life.

That pertains mostly to the fact that Call of Duty is getting a convention than the music, not that I'm much of a fan of that.

NorthstarPark 08/27/11 10:25 PM

Brofest!

DCART 08/27/11 11:13 PM

not a fan of the game, but thats pretty reasonably priced, considering they get a deluxe edition of the game, and kanye, who isnt cheap to see

Carry The Zero 08/27/11 11:38 PM

The People hating on this clearly didn't check out the site.

I'd say this is a pretty sweet deal for a COD fan.....They are re-creating one of the levels for paintball. I'm not a COD fan, but if they had done this for Golden Eye on 64 back in the day, I would have gone crazy.

Kanye + Dropkick + COD game + food + zipline/training/paintball + money goes to charity = way worth 150 IMHO.

CoheedForever 08/28/11 12:16 AM

Kanye is headlining?! That is awesome!

Stop, you might cause people to actually read about something before commenting on it. And that's CRAZY.

you get the $70 'hardened' version of MW3, and a dropkick murphys and kanye show, and spend 2 days playing mw3 before anyone else. theres also tournaments to win pretty sweet prizes.

i wouldnt travel for it, but if that was near me, it would totally be worth $150.

kazuma_ootaro28 08/28/11 05:28 AM

Don't care about CoD, but the Dropkick Murphys and Kanye lineup is one of a kind!

InfiniteArms 08/28/11 06:26 AM

Kanye and Dropkick Murphys is a weird combination...also, Call of Duty concert!?

sauce301 08/28/11 06:58 AM

they should just save everyone a lot of time and just sell their merch shirts with cheeto stains.

iAMhollyood315 08/28/11 07:01 AM

ughh you lost me on Kanye. His attitude bothers me more than his music. Kinda cool idea but way to expensive.

and if you "don't care" for call of duty like kazuma...you basically fail at life.

Dropkick Murphys play on night 1 of the convention and Kanye plays on night 2. So, not exactly.

Just copying from the news source. They're still playing the same event.

But that's not what the post says and that's not what people are reacting to in the comments.

I would go to this if I lived on the West Coast.

$150-$70 for the game someone was gonna buy anyways = $80 dollars. $80-$30 for dropkick murphys tickets = $50. kanye tickets are at least 100.

so if you were keeping up, not even including the racist comment about the tournaments, we are at +$50 in terms of value. on top of that, part of your ticket cost goes to charity, they have a paintball field set up, you get to play mw3 multiplayer before anyone else, and if you want to get killed by the asian kid (or, shocker! someone is better than you and wont die in 2 seconds) you can enter the $1 million tournament (which adds to the value)

so the biggest expense would be travel, and thats why i said it would be worth it if you lived in the area (and a lot of people live in LA) it may not be worth it to YOU personally, but that doesnt mean that the ticket prices arent worth it for other people. think before you speak.
