If I Ever Leave This World Alive – Meeting Flogging Molly

If I ever leave this world alive
I’ll thank for all the things you did in my life
If I ever leave this world alive
I’ll come back down and sit beside your
feet tonight…

Flogging Molly toured in Moncton, NB a few years ago and I had the opportunity to meet them in person. It was most definitely a bucket list dream come true.

“The sun never shines on closed doors” so I interviewed Bob Schmidt on the Flogging Molly tour bus before “floating” off to the concert.

 Like a “man with no country”, I got lost in the crowd.

If you’ve never heard of “If I Ever Leave this World Alive”, you’re missing out.

Dave King is a genius and knows how to draw a crowd.

If I ever leave this world alive, I’ll come back down and listen to you again tonight.

  1. Flipping JEALOUS!!! Saw them at Myrtle Beach in February. They (as well as Dropkick Murphys) are on my list of people I need to meet in life… Congrats and kudos!


    • I met the Dropkicks as well. Boston is one of my favorite cities in the world! Now that I’m living on the east coast again, I hope to return soon and McGreevy’s will be my first stop 🙂


  2. I’m so freaking jealous you got to meet them. I go almost every year they come to Houston. Although, I have to say the last concert in February was alittle bit more angry agressive than I’ve ever seen it. I don’t know if it’s their new album or new punk teens (the true sense of the word) listening to them. But still one hell of a show and I introduced them to my boyfriend; he loves them now.


  3. Oh, what a teeny world. Thanks to your Liking my “Three Days in Chicago” post I came over here & lo, you’ve been to hear Flogging Molly. My husband & I have followed Molly band member Bridget Regan since before she was born. Her family lived next door to my in-laws in Detroit, and were like family to them. When my incomparable mother-in-law became a widow Bridget’s dad looked after her until the day she died, visiting almost daily, running her errands etc. So next time you encounter the band, send a note backstage bearing transcontinental blessings from the spirit of Isabel Johns.


  4. I am green with envy! Love Flogging Molly, we see them every year in Chicago and they put on the most amazing show. Though, I don’t think I’ll ever get to hear “Laura” live, I still enjoy “Black Friday Rule” and all the rest! Slainte!


  5. What a kick! I listened to the link. I have a new fave — “The Worst Day Since Yesterday” made me laugh and “If I Ever Leave This World Alive” made me cry.


  6. LOVE LOVE LOVE them! Saw them in Nashville, was the best concert EVER! I spent them whole time standing up in my chair jumping around like someone half my age. It was F’ing awesome. Love you blog!


  7. It was one of the highlights of my time in high school that I got to meet Flogging Molly after their concert got rained out. Great post; I’ve just started looking at your blog, and I’m looking forward to more!


  8. Flogging Molly plays in my city quite frequently. They put on a free concert downtown a few years back and a few of my friends and I went to check them out. They are a fun band to catch live!


  9. My mother and I love Flogging Molly! Thanks for posting these pictures and the montage of Doctor Who with the song. I love this post! This makes me want to go to another concert and interview a band.
