Dropkick Murphys Plot 20th Anniversary St. Patrick’s Day Tour
Dropkick Murphys will celebrate their 20th anniversary as a band in 2016, and they plan to mark the occasion with their fans during an upcoming two-month U.S. tour.
The run of dates kick off on Feb. 18 in Cleveland. The band then has stops planned through the following month, including an appearance at Shamrock Fest in Washington, D.C., on March 12. The jaunt will conclude with four consecutive shows in the Dropkick Murphys' stomping grounds of Boston. The first of those gigs will appropriately take place on St. Patrick’s Day. The venues for three of their Boston dates have yet to be announced, but they’re slated to play Agganis Arena on March 19. See their complete itinerary at the bottom of the page.
Tiger Army and Darkbuster will serve as the openers for the majority of the upcoming tour dates. Slapshot, Fenian Sons and a to-be-announced “special guest” will join Dropkick Murphys for that Agganis Arena concert in Boston.
Tickets go on sale this Friday (Nov. 27) at 10AM local time. Grab yours at the band’s website.
