Doors are at 7 pm, Showtime is 8:30pm; tickets are only $12 in advance (available at ticketweb.com or at The Crofoot Ballroom) or $15 at the door. Ages 18 and over are welcome to attend.
“This event is like a full body immersion into the world of Boondock comedy and music - and even hanging out for a couple of drinks with the boys - that Boondock Saints’ fans and virtually anybody that’s looking for a big, fun night out won’t want to miss,” explains creator/writer/director Troy Duffy.
The 10th Anniversary VIP Fan Party features the comedic genius of Bob Rubin (The Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day’s Gorgeous George) and Bob Marley (Detective Greenly) one of the hottest and most sought-after comedians in the country. Bob Marley has been featured in his own special on Comedy Central, hosts his own SIRIUS Satellite Radio Comedy Show and stars in both Boondock Saints films.
Fans will also be treated to the high energy performances of several featured artists on the upcoming soundtrack release of The Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day including Detroit's own Ty Stone and The Truth, Irish American “aggressive folk rockers”, The Dirges, along with original Boondock Saints songwriters and band members, Taylor and Troy Duffy.
Released in 2000, The Boondocks Saints initially had only a limited run in theaters. But fans responded to the film in force, fueling sales of over seven million DVDs to date, and making it a bona fide cult hit.
Set in Boston, The Boondock Saints is a crime thriller starring Sean Patrick Flanery and Norman Reedus as twin Catholic Irish American brothers Connor and Murphy MacManus. After killing members of the Russian mafia in self-defense, these hard-drinking, God-fearing brothers become vigilantes, determined to rid their city of crime and evil.
Pontiac, Michigan is only the second stop in a series of events on this national tour celebrating The Boondock Saints. "Twenty-ten is already shaping up to be an amazing milestone year for The Boondock Saints and for the millions of fans who have literally carried us to where we are today," says Troy. "I know I speak for Sean and Norman as well when I say that it's going to be a year-long celebration of our connecting with, thanking and entertaining as many fans as possible just for the pure thrill of it all.”
