Dropkick Murphys Not Playing St. Patrick’s Weekend, Will Stream Show Instead
The coronavirus continues to wreak havoc with concert plans, and Dropkick Murphys are having to adjust just like many acts. For the past 24 years, the band have rocked a St. Patrick's Day weekend concert, but that is not the case this weekend. Still, the band has found an alternative.
They reveal in a new statement that they intend to still play a St. Patrick's Day show, streaming a concert live from Boston this Tuesday (March 17). It will, in fact, be a full show. The band's statement on the matter can be read below.
We hope you and your families are doing well during this trying time…
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!!
You’ll be able to watch it on our YouTube, Instagram and Facebook Live…
Here’s the details:
DROPKICK MURPHYS LIVE FROM BOSTON THIS TUESDAY – MARCH 17
7pm BOSTON TIME
4pm WEST COAST
This will be a FULL CONCERT !!
We’re excited to entertain you on St. Patrick’s Day – live from Boston
SPREAD THE WORD!!
THE SHOW MUST GO ON!!!
