Street Dogs front man Mike McColgan, clarified what happened at their St. Patrick’s Day show that took place at the House Of Blues in Anaheim. During one of their songs, they noticed that the group of neo-Nazis were getting rough and intimidating the rest of the fans. McColgan said:
Their very presence, their hateful,bigoted and ignorant ideology is odious to us and completely unacceptable. We with fans, friends and the assistance of security removed them from the crowd and in the process of mitigating them out some of us sustained superficial injuries.
We can attribute those injuries only being superficial in nature to the House Of Blues and their exceptional staff, our fans and our friends. After they were removed we continued with our show and finished the show without incident. In closing we submit this no neo nazis are allowed at our shows. We have always believed in equality and that all people are created equal. We will not suffer or tolerate bigotry in any manifestation. PERIOD!!!!
A similar incident happened in 2013 to Dropkick Murphys when Ken Casey had to fight a neo-Nazi offstage that was giving the Nazi salute.
