Dropkick Murphys are ‘streaming up from Boston’: Free livestream to replace annual St. Patrick’s Day set

Streaming up from Boston, whoa-o-o...

For the first time in 24 years, the Dropkick Murphys will not be playing to their annual sea-of-green crowd on St. Patrick’s Day weekend.

Following suit with other event closures and social-distancing measures to limit large gatherings of crowds, the band has rescheduled or canceled their weekend events.

Hi everyone -Due to the Coronavirus, we’ve decided to take the prudent step to postpone our remaining St. Patricks Day…

But the show must go on.

The Dropkick Murphys will play, they say, an entire St. Patrick’s Day concert from Boston after all, and you don’t need to be in Boston or pay for a ticket to see it.

On social media the band wrote, “For the first time in 24 years, we are not playing on St. Patrick’s Day weekend. The current world situation is the ONLY thing that would ever stop us from doing so… So we came up with an idea we’re going to pull off this Tuesday – the night of St. Patrick’s Day… We’re going to bring a DKM LIVESTREAM CONCERT to EVERYONE – ALL OVER THE WORLD!!”


Check out the band’s YouTube, Facebook, or Instagram pages on Tuesday, March 17, at 7 p.m. for the show.
