Dropkick Murphys Announce St. Patrick’s Day Livestream Concert

Dropkick Murphys have postponed their Boston St. Patrick Day shows due to the coronavirus pandemic. Despite this, the band will still be performing on the holiday (March 17) as part of a free livestream.

Dropkick Murphys said the following about the postponed shows:

“Hi everyone –

Due to the Coronavirus, we’ve decided to take the prudent step to postpone our remaining St. Patricks Day Boston shows and boxing event.

With a State of Emergency declared in Massachusetts, we feel this is the only responsible decision. We don’t want to be part of aiding the further spread of this virus.

The shows will be rescheduled for Sept 11, 12, & 13, and the only bit of positive news we have for you is that these new dates will serve as our record release shows for our new Album which comes out on Sept 11th.

We are working to have all the same support acts on the new shows. Obviously all these bands need to check their schedules – we will send another update once all those bands have been able to review their schedules.

We love you all and care about your safety above and beyond anything else.

Respectfully,
Dropkick Murphys
