After having to cancel the Boston Blowout, which would see Dropkick Murphys perform six shows in five days, including a sponsored Boxing Match, a matinee, and acoustic performance, the group found a way for the show to go on.
Even with an empty audience, these Celtic punks will live stream their annual St Patrick’s Day show.
Read the group’s full statement 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 on Facebook Live…
LIVE FROM BOSTON
THIS TUESDAY – MARCH 17
7pm BOSTON TIME
4pm WEST COAST
This will be a FULL CONCERT – AND MORE !!
We’re excited to entertain you on St. Patrick’s Day – live from Boston
While being stuck inside isolated from the world, grab a drink, and celebrate with those closest to you. Take a few hours and enjoy a fantastic show, from a band who knows how to bring people together in trying times.
