Dropkick Murphys add more Boston St. Patrick’s shows to 20th anniversary tour

After selling out the Agganis Arena crazy fast, the Boston band has added more local dates that week.

The Dropkick Murphys perform at TD Garden for their 2013 St. Patrick’s Day shows.

For the band’s 20th anniversary in 2016, Dropkick Murphys will continue their annual tradition of performing a string of shows around St. Patrick’s Day. The band announced a show in March at Agganis Arena late last month, one that subsequently sold out very quickly. Now, details about the shows on the surrounding days have also been announced. The band will play March 16, 17, 18, and 20 at House of Blues to round out the holiday week.

Details about the March 20 show have yet to be announced; tickets for the other three dates go on sale starting Friday, December 11 at 10 a.m.
